    I've heard a lot of women prefer male gynecologists because female gynecologists they'd been to were more likely to be dismissive. I used to think that it would matter, that it would be easier to talk to a woman. I've had good experiences with both male and female doctors, though. If the only difference would be gender and not competence, I don't see a reason to prefer one over the other.

    If I'm buying bras and underwear, I do prefer buying from a woman, but I won't go out of my way to get a female sales clerk. The rest of the time I don't really care. If I'm buying something I'm embarrassed about, I'll be embarrassed regardless of the person's gender.

    The first part is fine. The latter part, if you truly captured the tone, is lame coming from anyone regardless of type.

    I've dealt with T doctors before who were still capable of managing a decent bedside manner and acting respectfully. And sometimes F doctors are worse because they're trying to protect people's feelings so much they might not come across with the realistic truth. It's more a matter of maturity, not T or F, I think...

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    If you're a woman would you prefer ( all other things being equal ) a male or a female as a Gynecologist, for example ?

    if you're a guy, would you rather have a female Urologist or a male ?

    Or talk about doctors in general.

    If you're a guy and you're renting an X rated video, would you prefer it was a guy that you give your money to at the register ? Would it matter which sex it was ?

    Or would it be more important which personality type they were ? Say you prefer an "F" over a "T" regardless of gender.

"You have cancer, and, due to the type of cancer, have an estimated time left to live of X months or days. Settle your affairs. Have a good day." Or words to that effect. Of course the ad said that CTCOA made all the difference, not only in their treatments ( which include alternative therapies as well as standard ) but in their personal tone. How would the "T" bedside attitude sit with you in such a situation ? I'm assuming that the "F" would not hide any pertinent info, but only soften the blow, here.
    I hate it when some S types wait on me.
    If you don't ask the exactly correct question,
    you won't find out what you need to know.

    Classic example:
    me - "Uncle Dennis, do I need a passport to go to Canada?"
    Uncle Dennis - "No."
    me - "I thought I needed a passport now?"
    Uncle Dennis - "Well, you do if you want to come back."
    (Of course I want to come back!!) :steam:

    I've given up on male gynecologists.
    They never seemed to understand what I was telling them.
    I will only go to a female now.

    In other situations, I hate it when women wait on me when I want to know technical information. There's a gal who waits on me at out Radio Shack. She's definitely a T and knows her stuff, so I don't mind.
