I would say depends on the circumstance, when it comes to hard ruff situations like getting lost on a trail men seem to be more rational when it comes to getting into a fight women tend to be more rational10
What Girls & Guys Said
I can't say for sure. I've seen people from both genders be able to handle their emotions well, and also be horrible at handling their emotions.
Same for empathy and sympathy.. Women are very good at empathy, if that person is a female, a child, or an animal.. It's very rare that women have any kind of empathy for men.. A good example of this is the women in the view.. Laughing and kackling at a man's dick being chopped off. Those same women would be outrage if the story was a woman getting her breasts chopped off.
by the way not saying you're like this my friend, just saying, when it comes to empathy, as a society, we just don't care about men..10
Girls are more socialized than men and in touch with their own feelings. But I wouldn't say more emotionally intelligent as a whole. Otherwise disputes between men and women would be far fewer.
Sadly EQ is the new saying for "I'm not Book Smart I'm Street Smart". Tell me you're a dumbass without telling me you're a dumbass lol jk. But yea that's how it's used. Emotional intelligence comes with a level of self awareness. Knowing how you are, what makes you tick, how to adjust yourself. Seeing other people's emotions and acting accordingly
How many times do girls say, "I shouldn't have said/done that... but I was mad/but you made me mad"? More often than you'd think from a gender said to have higher EQ.0
I was gonna say no, but the men in the comments have good points. We do get irrational often, but it's true that we fight with words more often than we do with fists. There are exceptions, i. e. there are women that murder their crush's girlfriend out of envy. Otherwise, I'd say it's fifty-fifty.10
I wouldn't say they are more emotionally "intelligent" but I would say they are more emotionally driven, they tend to act quickly on how they feel and go based on that which in some instances can be beneficial. Men are more logically driven therefore they know how they feel but also know that going off based on emotion is not the answer, so try to find another way around the situation.0
Yes, women are more emotional, But as a guy, I was born very emotional, It all started in second grade when we would sing, I cried it made me sad, I told the teacher I wanted my mother then as years went on to fifth grade I was fine but as Sixth grade came along the bullying happened to me and in seventh grade, I still remember the bullies
the bullying was so bad, I should of file a lawsuit against the school district0
Some not all. I’m INFJ, empath, narc abuse survivor. Many times I find myself in spaces with women where I am 100 levels higher in emotional intelligence. Primary function being to recognize any persons high level of emotional intelligence and then shut my mouth and let them go on with their business. If they can’t recognize what I am up to, that’s a further tell. Primary rule. Keep your mouth shut. Do not give away the game. I think any emotionally intelligent person would understand completely0
I don't want to offend anyone so I'm just going to sit here and watch.13
No, but some women are maybe more emotionally driven.10
Sometimes they are. Women fight with words and behavior other than fists.11
My grandmother told me never to trust a guy who cries. But I do not believe it, men are humans too, and so they can cry right? hey have feelings, just like women0
If by that you mean women generally have a more practiced vocabulary when it comes to expressing feelings (both their own and other's), probably yeah..0
Hmmm, I mean is that a challenge? lol... I think I'm relatively emotionally intelligent but it's how you interpret relatively that counts lol10
I think most women are more emotionally intelligent than me10
Yes because men have more logic and women have more emotions.10
Yes women are by a lot. I usually turn to women when I'm in pain, which I am right now very badly and can't discuss0
I am not sure but I won't be surprised if they are.0
Yes, on average. This has even been proven by science.0
Yes, they are. On average they also show more empathy.10
Because in caveman times, it was the job of the male to make children and the job of the woman to raise children.0
They think they are but their not. Look at how women get so NASTY when an emotionally aware man won't let himself get manipulated.10

I think, on average, yes. Most guys simply aren't very focused on emotions - or at least, not the more refined emotions. We know happy, angry, hungry, horny, but beyond that, we don't spend a lot of time and energy to bother with the finer variations - but that's where most women LIVE, so, yeah, they're better at it. On the rare times when men need these skills, they often fall short.
The flip-side is that most women are RULED by their emotions, and most women can be convinced to make the stupidest choices, that work completely against her own best interests, if she can be made to FEEL good about doing so, or feel bad about not doing so. Yes, there are women who can and do use some logic and reasoning and make better decisions, but I think a majority make nearly all decisions based solely on emotions, and it leads a lot of them to their own destruction.
