 Science Has Found That Women Hear Best - When Gossiping or Eavesdropping!
If you've ever carped about your wife/girlfriend never hearing you out - here's a pointer. Scientific proof tells us that women pay full attention to conversations only when they are gossiping or eavesdropping on other people's conversations!

According to a UK survey, more than two- thirds of women admit that a gossip with friends is the only time they are properly listening to what is being said.

The same proportion, 67 per cent, think they hear most intently when they are trying to eavesdrop on tittle-tattle taking place nearby, reports The Telegraph.

However, only half of men said they listen intently to gossip, while four in 10 admitted to listening closely to other people's conversations, the poll of 2,000 people found.

What's more, more than one in five men reckon they always listen carefully to every word, and while less than one in five of women said the same.

Ladies are also most likely to switch off when listening to their work colleagues, with the average woman catching what they say just 64 per cent of the time.

Siemens Hearing Instruments carried out the research.
