Proving the age-old belief that women are more social and co-operative, is a new study that declares that men maintain higher levels of tolerance with the same-gender peers and a larger social network. Men are also found to keep their friendship with their same-gender peers for a much longer time.
The male and female tolerance of the same-gender peers was compared by Psychologist Joyce F. Benenson from Emmanuel College, along with her colleagues from Harvard University and the Universite du Quebec a Montreal.
Male and female college students were recruited for the study and a complete survey about their relationships with their roommates was researched. The experiment involved a hypothetical story about a best friend described as being completely reliable until one day when they promised to hand in a paper and did not. The participants were asked to judge the person's reliability.
The males found the roommate to be more satisfactory and less bothersome than the females. The observation revealed that males are more tolerant of the unrelated same-sex individuals. Further more it was also found that females switched more roommates than the men did.
At the final experiment, when the participants were asked to judge one negative behavior of the roommate, the females downgraded the best friend's reliability more than the men did. However, the researchers also stated that their definition of tolerance is limited and further work requires to be conducted to uncover their fundamental processes. AGENCIES
