So is that scientific proof that women involve more emotion in every decision than men?

No, nor is it even proof of an inherent difference. Interconnections in the brain are developed over time - years of training in particular subjects will increase the number of certain interconnections and decrease others. So, this may only indicate that many (though not all, as the article notes) people who share a gender may share some experiences.

So the crazy starts in the brain? Good to know.

So then your saying the more times the left brain reaches over to the right to get it's take on a decision, the more the connections build up...

... from the way you keep simplifying things to reach your preferred conclusion, I suspect that you're a science journalist.

It's not a new conclusion. Brain imaging has long since shown that women involve emotion in problem solving, while men use analytic reasoning. This study http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2006/04/060404090204.htm showed that even hile at rest, and not actively engaged on a problem, men tend to focus on external stimuli in their environment, while women tend to focus on how they feel internally.

That sounds so exhausting.  I feel bad for you farkettes out there so the next time my wife, daughter, or mother drive me insane over some perceived unintentional slight, I will try and cut some slack.

Anybody remember Richard Widmark? He was a schoolteacher before he got into the movies. His big break was pushing a woman down a flight of stairs. IN A WHEELCHAIR. I tell you, we're getting soft in this country. SOFT!

New self-help books:
-Men are from Mars, they think with their Penis.

-Why women cheat, and why it is the guy's fault

-Self-fulfillment through power shopping

-Zen and the art of video games

-My vibrator and I

-Me, Myself and Porn

Obviously, it's totally misogynist to point out that there are physical differences between males and females, especially if those differences happen to be near the brain.  We should just ignore these studies and the sexist bastards that publish them.
