Women and Men - spacial skills

This is a great find:

Men and women differ in their ability to solve spatial problems. (...)
we found that the women relied on the object's visual features to solve the task, while the men used both visual and location information. There were no differences between the sexes in memory for the visual features of the objects, but women were poorer than men at remembering the locations of objects.

So now you know why women are always getting you to clean things up - they cant ever remember where things are. I always have a cluttered room, and as einstein said ""If a cluttered desk signs a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?"

Now I can justify never cleaning my room again - it goes against the way I organize information, and people who ask me to clean it are just too dumb to organize by location as well as appearance. (Hmm, is lacking a certain capability dumb? interesting..)


anyway, nice eye candy site, great idea:
