Here is some awesome news from the scientific fraternity ladies as they agree that women have better spatial cognition capabilities – that means we have great organizational and utilization skills. In fact, they say that we are at par with our male counterparts.
Researchers have found that there no male advantage in mental rotation abilities associated with spatial cognition competences. Also, by employing cutting-edge eye-tracking technology.
WOMEN HAVE BETTER ORGANIZATIONAL AND UTILIZATION SKILLS THAN MEN
The study was conducted by researchers at Lero, the Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre for Software, University of Limerick (UL), Ireland. It was published in the journal Scientific Reports.
ORGANIZATIONAL SKILLS ARE NO MORE A MAN’S THING, SAY, RESEARCHERS
Dr. Campbell said the skill of spatial cognition or our ability to navigate our environment has been the battleground for almost 40 years for researchers claiming that males have a distinct performance advantage on tests of spatial cognition, notably the mental rotations test.
Studying the cognitive proficiency of individuals and gamers a key aim of the Lero Esports Science Research Lab which opened in 2019. However, it is the first of its kind in Ireland.
Are men better than women? Here’s what study has to say
The answer to this is question is NO.
Dr. Toth says, “Our study found that there no male advantage in mental rotation abilities. By lengthening the time allowed to complete the test. Also, the male performance advantage diminished entirely suggesting that the so-called sex difference in the mental rotation simply not there or explained by other factors.”
MEN & WOMEN MIGHT HAVE DIFFERENT APPROACHES BUT THEY BOTH HAVE SIMILAR SPATIAL COGNITION TO GET RESULTS
The research also found for the first time that both males and females frequently employed different gaze strategies during the cognitive tests to get to the correct answer. In other words, men and women approach the task in a different way to get the same result.
One hundred University of Limerick (UL) undergraduate and postgraduate level psychology. Also, sports science students volunteered to take part in the test carried out by Lero researchers. The 47 men and 53 women were in good health and had an average age of 23.
