What's Happening To Women's Happiness?

What's Happening To Women's Happiness?

Commented Sep 18, 2009 at 20:37:12 in Healthy Living

“I think your point about #1 is valid, although I would argue that on a macro level, women tend to be more introspective than men. Is that related to #2 and #3? Definitely. I just wanted to point out that perhaps biological differences (outside of us having more of a "burden" in our heads, which would be #3) have something to do with it.

This doesn't necessarily mean we cannot inherently be happier, just that we think differently. And our "scale" of happiness may be different than men.

On a different point, while this study is interesting, my initial reaction was that the patterns he shows are SO linear that they do seem a little bogus. I'd be interested in learning more about the methodology used to gather the data. Maybe that's just me being too critical, but hey, I'm a girl.

“I think it comes down to a few things:

1) Women seem to be more introspective than men. We're more rational. We're more likely to "think it through." We gather more facts when coming to conclusions. A lot of this comes from The Female Brain, a really interesting book about how our brains are different than men. But our introspection may also lead us to be more critical on ourselves, and therefore, less happy. As they say, ignorance is bliss.

2) Women are more emotional. This is also a biological phenomenon. Women just care more. And so little things will affect us in bigger ways. Like, I'm a hot mess when I watch The Biggest Loser, but my friend Tony can watch it stoically and not shed a single tear. It baffles me.

3) More burdens to consider. Oftentimes, men don't have to think about choosing between their career or their family... women, on the other hand, are often faced with "derailing" their careers to have a kid. There are obviously stresses associated with that, and more. For men, historically they have had one goal: breadwinner. For many women, they're faced with being both a breadwinner AND a mother.

“1) unfortunately (for the point you were trying to make), the variability in these qualities of mind from individual to individual is far greater than the differences between the means of both populations. This means that these supposed "gender related" differences are actually quite difficult to detect much less predict (but easy to presume are there) when faced with any one particular individual.

2) Or is any perception of 2) simply a natural reaction to the circumstances described in 3)? In other words, it may be that women are actually conditioned to be far more sensible and far less emotional, given that we have to put up with 3) all the time.”

“Hmm...clarity with no details. That doesn't sound so great.

Even as a supporter, I've been disappointed with how Obama has handled this entire debate. There was no clarity as to what reform actually entailed... it's like he wanted America to decide what to throw in the stew: in favor of a public option? Single payer? Call in and vote for your favorite healthcare Idol tonight!

The administration is really hyping up this speech. On Monday, I got an email from BarackObama.com with the subject title “Your place Wednesday night?” At first I thought it was another spammer selling fake Viagara, but apparently Organizing for Change is hosting watch parties. So if Obama doesn't knock it out of the park tonight, then it's all downhill from here.

“You have truly bought into the talking points. Obama could not have been clearer on what he expected to see in reform. What he didn't clarify was how to achieve the goal because, obviously, there is more than one path to the pot at the end of the rainbow. By not drawing lines in the sand, Obama has left the door open giving the Republicans the opportunity to walk through with their better/any plan. Until a bill is signed, I'm going to stand with the president.”

“The NRA is way too powerful to ever repeal the Second Amendment, so it looks as if we (the public and Obama) have to depend on law enforcement (or SS) to keep us safe from the crazy people who bring semi-automatic weapons to public events.

While I'd like to think that the SS and law enforcement are capable, I'm more afraid of an angry mob who believes that Obama wants to kill their grandma. With all the GOP lies, I think that even allowing guns at these type of events is irresponsible and dangerous.
