I am ALL about women's intuition! I can't recall a time where mine has failed me. Sure, there were times I didn't pay enough attention to it, but I should have, because our intuition works!
And now a new study published in "Psychoneuroendocrinology" indicates that our intuition could be rooted in lower testosternone exposure while in utero.
How is this possible?
1. Intuitive thought takes less cognitive effort and conscious analysis than reflexive thought. (It may be more tied to emotion or to the fact that women have more connections between the two sides of the brain.
2. More testosternone exposure in the women makes boys (and men) take more risks.
3. Using the well-accepted second-to-fourth digit ratio test, which is a marker for prenatal testosterone exposure, the researchers found that women who had more testosterone exposure while in utero, performed the same as men in tests of intuitive vs. reflective tests.
Here's what I read:
Can I argue that this is more proof of women being more evolved? ; )
I'm sure many people believe intuition is a weakness, but not me.
