A Cognitive Difference Between Women and Men on Spatial Understanding (
by nickpsecurity to news cogsci 195 days ago | 1 comment

Main title is clickbait but has good content. Repost my HN comment about a huge omission:

Sports, people! They keep saying men are better at visualizing stuff from various angles and hitting stuff with projectiles. I expected several paragraphs worth of all the outdoor, sporting activities most men are raised to do. Throwing, catching, or hitting balls by itself could cause some of this. Wrestling or fighting, too. Wandering is probably a factor, esp if involving jumps or climbing. Or just wandering through woods where everything is initially weird with much imagery and terrain misleading. Gradually build up a mental picture of what everything actually is. Bust your behind less, too. ;)
