Men and women use different protocols communicate

Updated: Feb 9

The communication styles of men and women differ, impacting how they perceive information during conversations. Women tend to use various nonverbal cues, such as body language and tone of voice, in addition to words to express themselves. When you offer to help her, she tells you in a high-pitched voice that you don't have to. That means she would like to receive your assistance, but you still regard her as an independent woman.

There are several explanations for this behavior. With children's inability to communicate their needs via speech alone, mothers concentrate on their body language. I believe patriarchy also had an impact. Many women were shut when they tried to speak out loud. There is simply too much to say, and words are insufficient. Biologically, this is normal given the increased brain activity and perplexed feelings caused by hormonal stress.

Men are far more straightforward.

Men, on the other hand, tend to be more straightforward, relying mainly on words to communicate, like this paragraph.

These differences can lead to misunderstandings, but awareness of these tendencies can help establish a more effective communication protocol.

It is not only about what you share or receive, but also about what you EXPECT to receive.

It is not only about what you share or receive, but also what you EXPECT to receive. Women will pick up on men's gestures, motions, expressions, voice intonation, and so on. Men will ignore all of it and concentrate entirely on words. This leads to misunderstanding, with women understanding far more than men trying to convey, and men understanding far less than they should. Neither sex is to blame. Years of evolution cannot be changed by a brief conversation. It's just the way things are. Being aware, on the other hand, is crucial in establishing a uniform protocol for communication.
