    Study: Women Don't Talk More Than Guys

    Study: Women Don't Talk More Than Guys
    Study Says Women Don't Talk More Than Guys; Word Total Is About The Same

    (AP) Another stereotype _ chatty gals and taciturn guys _ bites the dust. Turns out, when you actually count the words, there isn't much difference between the sexes when it comes to talking.

    A team led by Matthias R. Mehl, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Arizona, came up with the finding, which is published in Friday's issue of the journal Science.
    "Although many people believe the stereotypes of females as talkative and males as reticent, there is no large-scale study that systematically has recorded the natural conversations of large groups of people for extended periods of time," Pennebaker said.

    Indeed, Mehl said, one study they found, done in workplaces, showed men talking more.

    Still, the idea that women use nearly three times as many words a day as men has taken on the status of an "urban legend," he said.
    For all you ladies in FinHeaven, proof you're not gabbing more than us guys.

    Perhaps women talk in bursts(ie dominate conversations between the sexes), while guys talking to guys seemingly take turns. And that's why it seems like women talk more.

    Apparently the author never hung out with my wife and her friends.
