From Abandoned Shopping Carts: Personal and Spiritual Responsibility by William Bezanson:
“The reason I believe that women are always right has to do with the different ways that men and women make decisions. Men are predisposed to use left-brain thinking, which means using logical analysis, and inductive reasoning: taking particular knowledge and expanding it to be more general.
Women tend to use right-brain thinking, which means using logical synthesis, and deductive reasoning: recognizing general patterns and applying them to particular situations. This is women’s intuition.
In short, men tend to use their heads and women tend to use their hearts. Information available to the head is limited, often leading to ill-informed decisions. Information available to the heart is unlimited, and so decisions based on using the heart are mostly right.”
I like William’s take on who’s right and who’s wrong. However, I might be the last person to say I’m always on the right side. I’ve made some very wrong decisions in life, choosing to listen to an unwise head rather than a smart heart. (At least, that’s where I’m pointing the finger.)
In general, as humans, we want to be right about everything at all times. Right about the mate we choose, right about the jobs we take, right about the color of our new car, right about the house we buy, right about who said what, right about any decision and any answer.
Am I right?
Guys, am I right?
(Upon answering “right,” because I am in this instance, men may proceed to the left while nodding their heads in affirmation.)
