easier for men

I was quite astonished, when I noticed that it´s so difficult for most women to internalize the SDG*Chart of Emotions without verbal explanation. After reading a book written by Peter A. Andersen this mystery was revealed. In “Nonverbal Communication. Forms and Functions” Andersen tells the following fact : According Gaulin (1992) men tend to place them on a map when orientating but women usually rely on landmarks and verbal clues.

So for men the SDG*Chart of Emotions is just a map where they can virtually travel from an emotion to another. Women seem to need more explanation.
