Really! What DO women want? Isn't this one of the most challenging questions of all time? We thought "what men want" was difficult, but this is even harder.
2 The epic struggle of mankind to figure out the inner workings of women is ages old. Even Sigmund Freud, the master of modern psychology, died trying to figure out women. It isn't easy.
3 One reason why understanding women isn't such an easy thing is because the ways women process thoughts and emotions are drastically different than their male counterparts' ways of processing.
4 Key difference between men and women: I've reviewed many studies that indicate women use emotion to process thought as their basis for decision making 30% more than men do.* As such, women are also known for being more intuitive than men. This is not exactly true, as men use intuition in different ways, and have different ways of communicating. Nevertheless, men tend to bond through shared activities, whereas women bond through sharing thoughts and feelings.
5 So what do women really want from their man?
6 1. Women want men who exhibit confidence (or power)
7 2. Women want men with a sense of humour (fun)
8 3. Women want men with money or the things money can buy (sense of security)
9 4. Women want men with looks (protection and attraction)
10 5. Women want men with a bit of "Bad boy" qualities (mysterious and independent/strong)
11 6. Women want all the other stuff they typically list (varies - sensitive, caring, etc.)
