REAL TIME COUNTER : TALK-IMPAIRED MEN

Some time ago, the British Medical Association reported that women are 4 times more likely to suffer from jaw problems than men. Could that have anything to do with the widespread and highly publicised stereotype about female talkativeness? "No", say most scientists. "The data fail to reveal a reliable sex difference in daily word use. Women and men both use about the same number of words per day."

Neuropsychiatrist Dr. Louann Brizendine, however, seems to disagree. In her book "The Female Brain" she writes that women do talk significantly more than men. Maybe because women know they have to repeat everything they say to their 'talk-impaired' men?
