I dont know why but Ive never liked things like buying or wrapping presents at christmas. For birthdays I just grab what i can and put it in a gift bag the day before i see it as a chore. Ive never been great at decorating things im not too bothered about christmas decorations.

Last year me and my bf and I got the xmas gifts last minute and he seemed a bit flustered but i stayed cool and just grabbed what i could lol. Im not bothered about things like clothing/makeup my mum always says i dont fold things neatly and that i dont bother with myself or my hair but i dont even notice. Im not young im in my late twenties. My bf thinks its odd because i dont have a handbag. I sork in healthcare but am not chit chatty and struggle with thingd like helping patients to dress and making beds

Is there something wrong with me, I think i have a male brain. I only focus on work, the gym and improving myself, obviously looking out for family when i can.

Maybe someone came along in your sleep and swapped your brain, go check for any scars or stitches

hey!! i too am a girl, and i also have some of these traits (not chit chatty/don't fold things neatly)

i don't think this means we have a male brain? it's just that we don't fall into the social stereotype of what a typical girl is meant to act like and what she should be good at.

You could very well be right, gender is always being studied. Well my bf is always goingnon about me not acting feminine but im only 5ft and a tiny build so thought this feminised me a but but it musn't do.

There was actually an interesting study put together by that doctor guy from Embarrassing Bodies, discussing masculine and feminine brains. Got nothing to do with gender identity or anything, just the common/innate behavioural characteristics of women and men, and how it falls down on the brain. Statistically men have a masculine brain and women a feminine brain, but occasionally you have it where men have a feminine brain and women a masculine brain. The guy explained it much better, but it was really interesting. Discussed how the brain type impacts our behaviour; for example: a feminine brained person tends to be more empathetic, patient, attached, and suit jobs such as teaching. If I could find it again, I would link it.

There is and isn't, if that makes sense. The brain is a mosaic of features, some more common in women, some more common in men, but not exclusive to either. So, on the one hand it's very easy to say brains are gender neutral - more variation in than between populations, but you can have a brain thats predominately more female or more male features, and you could argue that means you have a female/male brain as in one more typical of one gender.

Very true, I am lazy but then I can really push myself with exercise. There are women who like wrapping/delicate tasks but are too lazy to exercise.

So?

You are lazy with things that are not important to you.

Just because it isn't what most people would see a female doing doesn't mean you have a male brain

I have a very male brain and I love the challenge of wrapping a present 'perfectly'. It very much appeals to my masculine thought processes.

If any of you men haven't tried to achieve present wrapping perfection then you're missing out.

And you is no man!
