Another False Stereotype? July 7, 2007

Filed under: gender,language,science — Jender @ 6:43 pm

Men “no less chatty” than women, says study. The result was obtained by bugging (presumably with permission!) the mobile phones of university students over a few days. So one might wonder whether it generalizes to other groups, or to non-phone-based conversation. Still, “women talk on the phone more” is a pretty widespread view, and it’s nice to have some concrete data that speak to it. Thanks to L for passing this one on to me!
