It's official: Men and women really do have big personality differences

Washington, Thu, 05 Jan 2012 ANI

Washington, Jan 5 (ANI): Men and women have major differences in their personalities, a new study has found.


The existence of such differences, and their extent, has been a subject of much debate, but Marco Del Giudice and his colleagues from the University of Turin in Italy, describe a new method for measuring and analysing personality differences that they argue is more accurate than previous methods.


The researchers used personality measurements from more than 10,000 people, approximately half men and half women.


The personality test included 15 personality scales, including such traits as warmth, sensitivity, and perfectionism.


When comparing men's and women's overall personality profiles, which take multiple traits into account, very large differences between the sexes became apparent, even though differences look much smaller when each trait is considered separately.


However, the study indicates that previous methods to measure such differences have been inadequate, both because they focused on one trait at a time and because they failed to correct for measurement error.he authors conclude that the true extent of sex differences in human personality has therefore been consistently underestimated.
