    Gender differences are attributable to the T/F dichotomy.

    I/E? I've heard something about men on old sailing vessels having some kind of unspoken understanding that a certain part of the ship was their "personal space" or something. I can't really think of another relevant stereotype.

    Of course if that's what you're suggesting, this really isn't going to make the female Introverts or male Extraverts too happy...

    But honestly, I've never really even been sure of the T/F thing completely... much of it seems to be cultural. So I don't really like pushing people into boxes based on gender stereotypes.

    You always succeed to point out the relevance.

    Question or answer?

    Does it matter?

    How about I answer?
    Real (representative sample) studies show that.
    -Women and men are equally good at throwing a ball with thier non-dominant hand. (I will always find this a great example in 'how to remove the culture influence')
    -Women and men on average talk exactly the same amount.

    I'm just getting started here.

    I feel like more males are T then F, and more females are F then T..
    Is it that by its indefiniteness it shadows forth the heartless voids and immensities of the universe, and thus stabs us from behind with the thought of annihilation, when beholding the white depths of the milky way?

    But men can throw the ball much faster/harder.

    I read somewhere that 75% of females are F. Men are more evenly distributed. That would explain some of the popularized differences.

    The official statistics from the "National Representative Sample," U.S. only, are 60% of men prefer Thinking and 60% of women prefer Feeling. But, as stated above our culture values Thinking in men and Feeling in women so people who have the "opposite" preference usually get trained in their nonpreferred style from an early age...
