I always thought it was really cool when a close male friend would drop the phrase “male intuition” into conversation. “How’d you guess?” I’d say, and he’d shrug nonchalantly: “Male intuition”. It made me smile, and I appreciated the anti Mars/Venus sentiment.

Turns out he was on to something. A recent internet experiment involving 15,000 people demonstrated that “women are not more intuitive than men: they just think they are“. The experiment showed that women are no better than men at spotting which smile is a fake, and which was sincere. Men and women scored equally on the test.

Put that in your pipe and smoke it, John Gray.
