It has been studied and researched that men and women communicate differently in numerous ways. The research and data that has been collected on this topic is not stereotypical. Some women are less likely to share the credit and some men are less likely to boast about their achievements. Also people's linguistic style influences perceptions about their confidence, competence, and authority. These differences may affect your future job assignments or job promotions. There are 10 differences found in the book. Some of them are the followin:
-Men are less likely to ask for information or directions in a public situation.
-In decision making, women are more likely to downplay their certainty; men are
more likely to downplay their doubts.
I did a little more research to try find some more differences. I found the following on www.associatedcontent.com written by Allison Vyncke:
-Women are more sensitive to others' feelings.
-Men show emotion to communicate dominance.
-Women show attentiveness through verbal and non-verbal cues. Many men avoid
these cues to keep from appearing “one-down.”
