A Scientific Pronoun Revelation


“Men and women use language differently because they negotiate their worlds differently. Across dozens and dozens of studies, women tend to talk more about other human beings. Men, on the other hand, are more interested in concrete objects and things.”

An article in Scientific American is towing the line between linguistics and psychology, deconstructing the differences in how we use language. Apparently our pronoun use is super revealing.
