Study: Stress Increases Empathy in Women, Decreases It in Men

Study: Stress Increases Empathy in Women, Decreases It in Men | Move the Body - Still the Mind | Scoop.it

to override normal levels of self-centeredness
and respond to others with
heightened empathy.
 

The opposite appears to be true of men.

Research, however, is proving these theories wrong. Most of us don’t stop to consider whether our self-critical and competitive attitude are helping us achieve our goals. We don’t realize that they are actually standing in our way. Scientific data shows that self-criticism makes us weaker in the face of failure, more emotional,... Continue Reading
