Bhargav Vyas Essay 3 Final Draft Gender and communication Different genders have diverse ways of communicating with each other that are influenced equally by both nature and nurture. Men and women have some biological or natural distinctions that channel their emotions and thoughts to behave differently. Yet, these biological differences are influenced by society and culture. Equally, men and women are bounded by society and culture to communicate in such a way that fits the “characteristic” of being a “man” or a “woman” as dictated by society. Much scientific evidences suggest that men see and think “macro” (globally) while women see “micro” (locally). Often times women tend to communicate more effectively than men, focusing on how to create a solution that works for the group, talking through issues, and they utilize non-verbal cues such as tone, emotion, and empathy whereas men tend to be more task-oriented, less talkative, and more isolated. Men have a more difficult time understanding emotions that are not explicitly verbalized, while women tend to intuit emotions and emotional cues.

According to both authors, hurdles between communication are more likely formed by the different thinking of men and women. This different thinking equally influences factors such as biological, social and cultural. The ways gender directs communication are influenced by society and culture, which channel our biological distinction to behave and communicate differently. The biological differences, which distinguish how men and women communicate, are ubiquitous and can be seen in all males and females no matter their society or culture. Scientists have come to accept that a few fundamental differences between men and women are biological. It turns out that men and women's brains, for example, are not only different, but the way they use them also differ. Women have larger connections and more frequent interaction between their brain's left and right hemispheres. This accounts for women's ability to have better verbal skills and intuition. On the other hand, men have greater brain hemisphere separation, which
