 Men Falter in the Presence of Women

Latest research claims that men perform worse on cognitive tasks in the presence of women.

The research conducted by psychologists at Radboud University, Netherlands suggests that men start faltering and exhibit a decline in mental performance as soon as they anticipate interacting with women. The Dutch researchers found a decline in the mental function of men even with the mere thought that they are being observed by a woman. However, women face no such problems.

The researchers feel that this could be attributed to the fact that men are more strongly attuned to potential mating opportunities. Or it could be the consequence of modern perceived social pressure for men to impress women during social interactions.

The study is published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.
