He is better at navigating, she remembers where the keys are: Conference highlights cognitive differences between men and women

The battle of the sexes has raged for centuries and will likely never end.

But at least now, scientific research can shed light on some of the biological and physiological differences between men and women.

The British Psychological Society Annual Conference, held last month, highlighted some of the differences in cognitive abilities between sexes.

For instance, studies show that men have better spatial awareness skills, whereas women are stronger with verbal fluency and greater memory for objects.

With these traits generally replicated across cultures and nations, it indicates a biological origin in nature.

Diane Halpern, a professor of psychology at Claremont McKenna College in California, spoke at the London-based conference, hoping to correct the belief popularised in the 1980s that men and women’s brains are wired almost identically, and it is culture and nature that causes difference.

…Time to move on? Staying in a job you hate is bad for you AND your employer – and the reward for ‘loyalty’ is illness
…People love multitasking – but sadly BOTH sexes are terrible at it, not just men

During her speech, as reported by Live Science, she said: ‘We do socialise our boys and girls differently, but the contribution of biology is not zero.’

Some key differences between men and women believed to be biological in nature include men having a stronger ability to think of objects in 3D, helping them to navigate. This difference has even been spotted in studies involving babies of only three months old.

However women are ‘better at remembering where things are’ and are more likely to navigate via landmarks rather than the generally male trait of navigating by sense of direction.

Some perceived differences between the sexes are down to cultural pressure – for instance, Halpern said, there is a belief that men are better at mathematical problems and women are better at reading and writing, but these differences tend to fade in more gender-equal societies.

There is also widespread criticism about standardised testing being biased towards one sex or the other.

If gender is not an issue for society anymore, the question was posed: Why are 90 per cent of company managers male, and 90 per cent of secretaries female?

Halpern said that while women do most of the ‘caretaking’ jobs, such as childraising or helping the elderly, the inequality will remain. But she added that, on the other side, society was losing many talented men on the domestic, caregiving front.

She added: ‘We can’t have equality in work, if we don’t have equality in the home.’

The thought of tossing one’s cap in the air and being surrounded by a sea of fellow graduates is a scene many have envisioned since their adolescence. As children, most couldn’t stand the thought of waiting until they could venture into the “real world,” and for many college seniors, and soon-to-be graduates, the time has come for them to do just that.

Stepping into the “real world” is an exciting experience, yet it may also be slightly daunting. It is up to the student to make the most of each event, and not get overwhelmed by new experiences.

“The biggest thing I’m worried about in relation to entering the workforce is all of the adjusting I will have to do,” said senior Matty Budesa.

Adjusting to the workweek, and giving up the relaxed schedule of college classes may not seem to be the most ideal, but it is important to stay efficient and timely with work.

Time management plays a big role with every new journey. Everyone’s heard it going into high school, followed by their step into college, and the same applies for the working world. Time management is key to staying on top of work, and can prevent stress.

“Obviously, a college lifestyle where you can some days sleep in until 10:00 a.m. or so is quite different from dressing professionally and being at work by 9:00 a.m. every morning,” said Budesa. “While I think I’m prepared skills-wise, I definitely worry about the schedule adjustments and potential lack of free time.”

Mistakes will be made, whether directly related to your career, or life in general. When situations occur, it is crucial to not let errors beat you down.

Successful Harry Potter novelist J.K. Rowling, who is the first writer to make billion, is a prime example. Rowling hit a few roadblocks along her journey.

Prior to unleashing the world of Harry Potter to the public, and while she was still in the premiere writing stages, Rowling opened up about being diagnosed with clinical depression and contemplating suicide in an interview with The New Yorker. The idea of the soul-sucking dementors within the Harry Potter series actually came from her illnesses. Rowling also signed up for welfare due to her poor economic status.

In an advice column for new grads published by Forbes Magazine, Rowling stated that failure become the foundation of her success.

“Had I really succeeded at anything else, I might never have found the determination to succeed in the one arena I believed I truly belonged,” said Rowling. “And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life.”

Throughout the journey new grads are about to take, it is important to remember that they mail fail, but that failure doesn’t define them.

Although having a career may trigger thoughts of “work and no play,” happiness and fun is something to always keep on the mind throughout life’s endeavors.

“One thing that I’ve kept in mind throughout college and hope to continue with is a motto of ‘staying fun,’ which seems kind of cliché, but overall I don’t want to stop having fun just because I’ve moved to the professional world,” said Budesa. “I also realistically know that it will be a different type of environment, but I think as long as I remember this motto I can maintain some sanity and stay young at heart for a bit longer.”
