Cognitive Gender Differences

We discussed the difference in cognitive development between genders. This article further discusses these differences and how each gender develops and approaches situations differently. Though they are not wrong, just different they explain what is typical for a girl and what is typical for a boy. Of course the development can depend on how one is taught and involvement of parental figures etc., I still find it weird how males/females are placed in a stereotypical bucket and labeled as this is where you should be in your development or someone saying “for a girl your age, you should be…”. Though we do have concepts and studies that confirm this, it is fascinating that we can be “wired”similarly because of gender.
