Women Make Teams Smarter in the Workplace

There’s little correlation between a group’s collective intelligence and the IQs of its individual members, but if a group includes more women, its collective intelligence rises, says a study profiled by the Harvard Business Review.

Women Are Better For The Planet

Seven independent studies/surveys show that women are much more conscious of their environmental impact:

1. Women recycle more.

2. Women are more keen to be green.

3. Women eat less meat.

4. Women take shorter trips.

5. Women save gas.

6. Women are eco-fashion forward.

7. Women make more eco-purchases

The folks at break down each study:

1. Women recycle more. About two-thirds of households that regularly recycle credit the woman of the house as the “recycling enforcer,” according to a 2009 survey. That’s a big deal since women continue to shoulder most of the housework, experts say.

2. Women are more keen to be green. About 41 percent of women compared to 27 percent of men cite eco-friendly living as a daily goal, a nationalsurvey finds. The same study showed that more women than men want to use reusable shopping bags and reduce their household’s energy use.

3. Women eat less meat. Men consume more meat and processed foods than women, conclude two recent European studies – two categories of food that are especially resource-intensive. Women eat more fruits and vegetables, which use up less land, water and CO2, for example.

4. Women take shorter trips. Is it because they ask for directions and take a direct route? We’d like to think so, but no: men drive and fly longer distances for their jobs, the European studies show. Women use more public transportation, too, which lessens their carbon footprint.

5. Women save gas. Aggressive driving lowers gas mileage by 33 percent on the highway, says the U.S. Department of Energy, and studies repeatedly show that women are less likely to speed than men. (That’s reflected in insurance premiums, too.)

6. Women are eco-fashion forward. The lack of eco-friendly menswear isn’t a big surprise since designers overwhelmingly focus on women’s apparel, but because women also buy more clothes, they have a greater influence on the industry as a whole. Did we mention their clothes are smaller, too?

7. Women make more eco-purchases. Beyond fashion, women are more likely than men to buy eco-oriented or recyclable products, according to an international study. Again, that’s potential for a big impact since women make at least 75 percent of home purchase decisions, researchers attest.

Women Are More Efficient Soccer Players

When women play soccer, the individual interruptions, for instance for substitutions or to cheer a goal, are a lot shorter than when men play. In particular after injuries men remain on the ground significantly longer.

STUDY: Women Better Suited For Endurance Than Men

A recent study suggests that women have some way of preferentially burning fatty acids better than men do, and women might be able to get more out of that premium fuel. Larger fuel tanks aside, women ultra-athletes may also have additional chemical advantages, like the powerful athlete-friendly hormone estrogen as an antioxidant…READ MORE

Women Have Better Palettes

If you’ve wondered why the man in your life can’t taste the difference between a screw top bottle of wine from the drugstore and an aged merlot from your wine cellar, rest assured he is not alone. Women have been known to have more sensitive palettes that can detect subtle flavors better than men can. Women have more taste buds than men, which gives them greater sensitivity to sweet, sour, salty and bitter flavors .

Middle-Aged Women Have Better Memories

While we believe middle- aged women are better at pretty much everything, we can now definitively say that they have better memories than their male counterparts. After studying more than 9,600 middle-aged adults, a research team at the University of London concluded that women can recall words both faster and more accurately.

Women Are Better At Retiring

The biggest challenge ( or perk) of retirement is ending ones career. This can be a particular hardship for men , as men often view their professions as part of their identity. Women are less likely to make their jobs a central part of their life and thus experience much less depression and anxiety when they enter retirement, according to the BMO Retirement Institute.

Women Are Better At Washing Their Hands

 A 2009 study released on Global Handwashing Day, October 15, found that women are much more likely to wash their hands after going to the bathroom.  The majority of women used soap and water to wash their hands, while men needed constant, blunt reminders to wash up. We were pretty grossed out by the research proving single women are cleaner but this study really takes the cake.
