Women base their arguments on tone and inflection. “It’s not what you said, it’s HOW you said it“.
Men base their arguments on facts and logic. “I didn’t say that. Why are you even thinking that??”
It’s impossible to match these up. Neither of these equate each other and they never will. Yet even today, arguments are based on unequal points of view. It’s like one person saying “The sky is blue” and the other replying “It’s NOT orange!!“.
It’s one thing for children to argue this way, but it’s a completely different thing for grown adults to argue this way.
Facts can be tested, by anyone, and shown to be valid or untrue. Everything else is open to interpretation and can be affected by a person’s feelings, attitude, and environment.
How are we (as a humanity) supposed to solve problems and advance ourselves as a species if we can’t sort out the simple differences in the way we converse?
It’s frustrating, it’s maddening, and it’s the #1 reason why people communicate less and less every day…….
