According to a new study, men talk just as much as women.

This is a bit of a shocker because women have long been thought of as being more talkative.

Researchers from Northeastern University found that guys and ladies talk the same amount – but just in different ways and in different settings.

When the conversations are one-on-one and in unstructured settings, there is no difference between how much men and women talked.

Guys can yap it up with the best of them.

But, guys will shut it down when the conversations are collaborative.

It makes sense if you think about it … Alpha Dogs don’t want to share and collaborate. They want to lead.

Putting heads together and coming up with a consensus sounds like a drag. (Huffington Post)
