It’s True…Women Really Do Talk More Than Men
From the time I was a kid I have been told I talk too much. I hated being told that little girls should be seen and not heard. What can I say? There’s alot to talk about.
On average women say 20,000 words per day while men only say about 7,000. Either way, that’s a lot of words in one day!
For those of you that don’t want to hear it or tune women out when they’re talking, please remember the urge to talk is nothing we can control.
According to a study published in The Journal of Neuroscience, women’s brains contain higher levels of the language protein. I didn’t even know there was such a thing but apparently it accounts for the rather large difference in words spoken on a daily basis.
As a female, and one who enjoys talking, I find this information to be rather exciting. Now the next time someone tells me I talk to much, I can politely say that it’s not my fault, it’s that pesky language protein.
