Introduction

Why Men and Women Are Different 'Not only do men and women communicate differently, but they think, feel, perceive, react, respond, love, need and appreciate differently.' - Jon Gray. I have spent seven days observing the contrasting behaviour between males and females, and then finding out why these things occur. My personal observations have uncovered many significant differences between men and women. * If a woman is out driving, and she finds herself in unfamiliar surroundings, she will stop at a garage and ask for directions.
