According to a new study, women really are NICER than men. Although any mom out there who’s living with a teenage daughter will probably disagree…
Researchers at the University of Zurich in Switzerland found women’s brains are WIRED to be kinder than men’s. The reward centers of the brain light up for women when they give money to charity or help someone out. It’s different for men. Their reward centers were more likely to light up when they made a SELFISH decision. The researchers however, aren’t sure if we’re born with that wiring, or if it’s something that we develop.
The study says, “Studies show that girls are rewarded with praise for [generous] behavior, implying that their reward systems learn to expect a reward for helping behavior instead of selfish behavior.“.
