these are not expressions of real emotions, they were just making faces. for really SCIENTIFIC STUDY you should have taken photos of real-life incidents and test it on a large number of people; because in small test sample difference of 1 point doesn't proof anything.

Wow, people are getting really angry about this. If you're so annoyed then go do it yourself.
'MegaYoyoer' 11 months ago
great, another exuse for feminists

Not very conclusive, they had small sample size and a small margin.
'BooBaddyBig' 11 months ago
The result is probably not statistically significant; you'd likely have to have a bigger sample size to establish this.

I would argue that it's not a great experiment as the emotions were just what the host believed a sad face or scared face looked like ect. Rather than actually producing a naturally occurring facial expression from a naturally occurring emotion.

It's a good test, if you want to know how you would do by reading emotions from ninjas.

In my experience it's pretty true. Women just look more towards the face of a person in comparison to men so they'd know better what certain facial expressions looks like. That's also one reason why women are more self conscious since they just see more of the face.

Typical: "Women are better than men" and no one is offended, just try doing a who's "smarter test" and all Feminazi's lose their mind.

Men and women? I'm opressed

Faked emotions and a small test group? An intriguing result, I'll grant you, but far from from convincing.

It's ok to talk about the differences in the Brain if women have the edge, but male advantages are sexist & racist.
'curi0' 12 months ago
Right, coz by being a tiny bit better at guessing some static, partial pictures, means you're better at reading emotions..
'FreedomForceUSA' 12 months ago
Wait, am I suppose to care?

I don't doubt that some women think they are better at reading emotions because they are women. Think is the key word.

9 out of 10 times, women will react to stupid things and get mad for no reasons at all.
thought mythbusters retired.  I had stopped watching after they told kari grant and tori to kick rocks
Scott Sekiya
'Scott Sekiya' 12 months ago
lol everyone's reactions to each emotion they experience is different. for example some people cry when they get really angry at something. and to be honest if can't read obvious emotions you probably have a disorder.

It's because women need to tell emotions of babies stfu feminists
'GabeHouseCovers' 12 months ago
if they're acting the faces and the emotions, they're not actually reading anything
'Zhamp0' 12 months ago
wait, they only tested like 20 people? confirmed my ass

is anyone surprised? men are taught from a young age that stuff like emotions are a sign of weakness amongst men.

confirmed by this statistically insignificant sample size
'skyboundpilot' 12 months ago
I would probably agree with this- Women DO seem much better at this. *But on a side note*, if you ever did a video about men being inherently better at something than women, feminists and the like would lose their freaking minds.

My guess is: if there is a gene on the X chromosome responsible for the development of better abilities to read other people's emotions, it's clear that women have a better chance than men to carry the "enhanced" gene, as they have two X chromosomes, while men have only one.

yeah, lets go to a particularly salty lake and take a sample. there's salt in the lake, therefore every lake is very salty.

'Ben Cohen' 12 months ago
NOT CONFIRMED!! The emotions that they were testing were faked emotions not real ones. They would need to capture true happy and sad, confused etc. to do this right. Have all the cast watch movies that evoke the true emotions then run the experiment again. I guarantee you'll get a different result.

Women are better (or at least quicker) at reading subtle emotional clues. But one thing I thought was that the show sorta shoulda cite the more complete study because if people trust the show alone they get a pretty misguided view of sample sizes. Even if it's just in writing.
'TheFlyingKing' 12 months ago
"Confirmed" WTF, you just do a survey lol, where are the real scientist?

Women are better at making sandwiches

Those are not genuine emotions though. People don't always cry when they are sad, and don't always have a huge smile when they are happy. And this is way too small of a sample size There is also a bias because the faces on the screen are 4 males and 1 female. The results might just show that women are better at reading male faces than men.

'Duggie D' 12 months ago
no, but they're better at projecting their own emotions onto others.
'Brilliant's Designs' 12 months ago
u dont need a experiment for that... ofc they can...
'NuggetOfBlueGold' 12 months ago
Women are only better at reading emotions cos they are super emotional themselves, throwing tantrums, fits, sulks, and having mood swings & bizarre, irrational thoughts several times a day. It's left us guys emotionally drained. :(
'MLG_YourMom' 12 months ago
not a good test since the result could be depending on how good someone can see faked emotions.
