By now, everyone knows that women can do everything that men can because they’re fierce and empowered. But there are some differences between the male and female anatomy. Obviously, it’s not just about the type of plumbing you have. There are a lot of things about women that will totally shock you. For example, did you know that their bodies have higher levels of endurance than men? Also, were you aware that cellulite is actually normal tissue in women? Well it turns out that these aren’t the only things that make women so freaking amazing. So here are some surprising facts about women that will blow your mind.Women have higher levels of oxytocin, which is also known as the happy hormone. This allows them to from stronger attachments. Their brains are also far more developed in the areas where feelings of emotions, particularly affection, are present.
Believe it or not, this is an evolutionary trait and the reason women have sensitive hearing is so that if a baby is crying, they’ll wake up right away. Fortunately, a woman’s sleep is only disrupted by high-pitch noises, but this can sometimes lead to sensitivity to sleep disorders, which isn’t a lot of fun.
Color perception is linked directly to the X chromosome, which allows women to distinguish between different shades of color better. So, if you ever play color-based games, you’ll definitely want a woman as your teammate.
Only 1 in 40 women develop cellulite in their gluteal-femoral area and it’s actually a sign of maturity. Also, in this instance, fatty tissue is important in the production of hormones, which in women would be estrogen. So when you think about it, cellulite isn’t really the end of the world.
Women have higher levels of estradiol, cortisol, and progesterone. This causes them to feel anxiety, which isn’t always a bad thing. It actually gives women a stronger intuition when there’s danger nearby.
Women will find that they have a lower tolerance for ultraviolent radiation, and a lot of things can trigger irritability on their skin like stress, pollution, and nutrition. They’re more prone to dryness and flaking especially when the weather is cold and the humidity is low.
The muscular structure in women contains higher levels of elastin than men. The levels also apply to tendons as well. This makes women a whole lot more flexible when it comes to sports and everyday activities.
You may have noticed how women turn their heads when their names are called, while men have to turn their entire body. The reason for this is that women have more elasticity in their muscles. So next time you’re dancing at a nightclub, give that neck a nice stretch.
Women are able to figure out the differences in taste because they have more fungiform papillae, which are the taste areas of their mouths and they have more taste buds on their tongues too, which gives them quite an advantage in a taste testing challenge.
The brain is a complex network, and like all networks, it has to remain connected in order to work efficiently. But studies have shown that women’s brains have a more efficient network than men, which amps up their creativity.
A wide array of cognitive and general intelligence tests have revealed that women have a thicker brain cortex than men. This means that women are far more rational versus men who have higher brain volumes and are far more emotional.
The lack of water makes it more difficult for women’s bodies to process alcohol before it gets to the blood. Women also sweat a lot less than guys do, which means that their bodies can’t cool off as fast. Women’s hemoglobin levels are also 12% lower than their counterparts.
When women’s hair starts to thin, it can be scarier than when it happens to men, who have coarser hair. But on average, people lose up to 100 strands of hair per day, regardless of the gender. Another interesting tidbit is that hair diameter will vary between races too.
In humanity’s humble beginnings, women were the ultimate gatherers, so they relied on their sense of smell in order to pick food for their family to survive. But in today’s modern world, that heightened sense of smell can be used to smell a lovely flower given to them by a significant other.
The QVC shopping channel conducted a survey that showed that women in the UK think about how they look a total of 9 times per day. The results also proved that over a third of the women wanted to look good for other women, not for men.
From the moment that they’re born, women have the ability to read people’s faces, particularly gestures. They also read the tone of people’s voice too. This gives them a huge advantage when it comes to social interactions because it allows them to be the alpha in a conversation.
Psychologists at the University of Glasgow, the University of Leeds, and the University of Hertfordshire conducted a study that put women and men together and had them perform several tasks at the same time. The experiment showed that women are simply better at multitasking.
