New developments in neuroscience throw light on marked differences between masculine and feminine brains. Our experiences affect our genes, making even supposedly hardwired qualities such as gender more fluid than we might previously have imagined.
Men can be incredibly emotionally responsive, and can tell just as good whoppers as women. Neuroplasticity is such that different brains can be developed in markedly different directions, producing great female mathematicians and male emoters alike.
But eomen gender is so blurry, how come women claim to lie so much more? Especially year-olds in Plymouth, Cardiff and Brighton, who apparently are the most duplicitous.
One of the often-noted distinctions between male and female brains concerns our use of language. Men apparently processes language largely on the left side, while women tend to deal with language across the two hemispheres.
And some lies are a mixture.
Researchers at the Stockholm School of Economics found that men are significantly more likely than women to lie to secure a monetary benefit. In the workplace, men tell more self-centered lies.
They lie about their accomplishments, salaries, and status in an attempt to appear more powerful or interesting than they are. I know how important it is to be totally candid with my male anal gangbang -- especially during their performance reviews -- but I still who lies more men or women to say anything that makes someone feel bad.

This is especially true if you smile while discussing a serious subject, expressing anger, or giving negative feedback.
