It took some time to understand the value of listening to my wife. Whenever that is, I’m not ripping out my hair trying to discern from which universe she originated. One moment I’m certain she came straight out of heaven, and her sweet love is here to save me. The very next, I’m banging my head against a door-frame, using my robot voice.
“Does not compute. Does not compute.”
Surely God has a splendid sense of humor. People who make a living by making us laugh have long mined from this lode of comedic fodder, cracking jokes over exchanges between sexes.
However, decades ago various institutions of research have discovered intrinsic physiological differences between the male and female brain, which beautifully accounts for gender specific personality. Without wading through the entire morass of scientific study and its dizzying terminology, it’s worth mentioning the physical aspects of the brain that differ in males and females. It has to do with the multifarious roles of each of the human brain’s two hemispheres. And, a white fibrous cord called the “corpus callosum”, which serves as a connecting link between the two halves, allowing interchanges of data: to collate, analyze and share information back and forth.
Well worth the listen is a series done many years ago by the radio broadcast, “Focus on the Family”. Available on YouTube, It was titled, “Innate differences Between Males and Females”. Enquiring minds will not be disappointed by Dr. Donald Joy’s research, analysis and report.
A biology lesson is not my intent here, so, suffice it to say that these studies point to a formerly undisclosed purpose of God. When He fashioned Eve, the creation of mankind was finalized. And ever since then, husbands the world over have been… Hen-pecked? Wait!
Maybe all that pecking has a point. Since when has variations in what God has made, not been for a grand reason? Never! A myriad of benefits await all men who seek understanding of these dissimilarities, and then utilize their wife’s unique capabilities. Appreciate them.
Women’s intuition? Nay! Females simply can process probabilities better than the male brain can! That’s only one of a virtuoso of assists available to husbands.
And wives, you too have valuable benefits to reap when you operate in cooperation with your husband’s brain. He is wired to think in ways you never could.
The study of the human brain’s development throughout fetal stages, explains how our minds came to function differently from one another. The why, is cause for wonderful elation! God created men and women to complete each other!
He has arranged male and female cogitating cells in a fashion that, when joined together and working in tandem, forms a super-mind unrivaled by any two unconnected people. Recognizing our mate’s potential to enhance our calculatory capacity and boost our ability to assess various situations, is a boon. We’re created to be true dynamic duos in thought. Wouldn’t it be great if we made the right decision one-hundred percent of the time? Learning to utilize our spouse’s different angle of approach will dramatically increase our positive percentages.
“…Once we look at this, most of us throw up our hands and say ‘This is glorious!’ Because we are fearfully and wonderfully differentiated from each other.”—Dr. Donald Joy
Just now, my wife is at the store, shopping for a flea-collar. No, it’s not for me. The store is two minutes away and she’s been gone for two hours. But that’s to be expected. Shopping has a different meaning for her. If it was me, I’d have found that flea collar and been back within fifteen minutes. I’d have conquered the flea collar dilemma and completed the mission like the champions we husbands are. We are conquer oriented. I don’t shop—I hunt! But for her, shopping is a social thing, and a relaxing, leisurely activity.
In a few more hours she’ll show up to explain how much money she has saved us by spending a bunch of money on things that are completely nonessential. Hmm. Okay, so I still don’t have it all figured out. But one thing is for sure. I love that crazy woman.
