Men can’t tell when a woman’s being sarcastic


I think we found why those 50s housewives were so obedient and incompetent.

omg really wtf go away no audrey

My whole life is flashing before my eyes.

I never knew.

I bet they also call her a bitch for being more emotionally intelligent.

inb4 muh standard IQ

  1. 3% average sex difference is non-sig in social science and IQ correlates to brain interconnection/white matter volume, than overall size/grey matter. Guess which sex wins? [see end]
    Meanwhile, who’s making dem IQ GAINS, bro?
    Don’t let an inconvenient fact get in the way of your fallacies.
  3. To quote myself… “But overall, mathematically, the average woman is smarter than the average man because men have a lower average IQ.” It’s sum total/N, those studies you tend to cite reject all the male retards from the sample, biasing the average. “I guess I must have a secret Y chromosome because I understand maths?”

The higher values of FA and lower values of RD suggest that intelligence is associated with higher myelination and/or a higher number of axons particularly in men.

Smarter men have effeminate brains.

Size means nothing. It’s ironically about density.

the researchers concluded that relative brain size was the most significant predictor of success in the task.

Differences in brain size within a species, such as humans, are relatively small, making it difficult to tease out the effects of brain size and the effects of other factors. For instance, the difference in intelligence between an individual with, say, a brain that’s 1,100 grams and one that’s 1,400 grams (which could be found in humans) is confounded by other variables, including differences in density of neurons, other structural brain differences and socio-cultural factors.

Brain size seems to have nothing to do with scores on standardized intelligence tests, according to a brain-scan study of young children.

They found a strong correlation between the integrity of the white matter and performance on a standard IQ test.

“It also changes how you think about what IQ is measuring,” says Wedeen. The research was published last month in the Journal of Neuroscience.

If white matter is linked to both processing speed and IQ, this raises the question: is intelligence merely a function of how fast your brain works? Previous research has linked processing speed to IQ, but the tests used in the study are measures of general intelligence, including verbal skills, math, and logic. “Processing speed plays a big part in how intelligent you are, but it’s not the only factor,” says Shaw.

The new study is among the first to link a specific neural architecture to IQ in healthy individuals. “Most people have focused on grey matter,” says Shaw. “This is good evidence we should be looking at white matter as well.”

Thompson and his collaborators also analyzed the twins’ DNA, and they are now looking for specific genetic variations that are linked to the quality of the brain’s white matter. The researchers have already found a candidate–the gene for a protein called BDNF, which promotes cell growth. “People with one variation have more intact fibers,” says Thompson.

For the spergs: I am joking.

Sarcasm is sexy

According to Dr. Rankin, if you didn’t get the sarcastic tone of the previous sentences you must have some damage to your parahippocampal gyrus which is located in the right brain. People with dementia, or head injuries in that area, often lose the ability to pick up on sarcasm, and so they don’t respond in a socially appropriate ways.

Presumably, this is a pathology, which in turn suggests that sarcasm is part of human nature and probably an evolutionarily good thing.

How might something so, well, sarcastic as sarcasm, be part of the human social toolbox?

Evolutionary biologists claim that sociality is what has made humans such a successful species. We are masters at what anthropologists and others call “social intelligence.” We recognize and keep track of hundreds of relationships, and we easily distinguish between enemies and friends.

Women are far more sarcastic, but there’s a scale of prosocial (making friends) to antisocial (throwing shade).
Many men are too dumb to pick up on it, or the difference between sweet sarcasm and mean. That’s why we mock them, as if women are 100% serious, when ‘cattiness’ is just a spiteful term for sarcasm and they’re always telling women to get a sense of humour. And the men on the receiving end of biting sarcasm (where at least she’s talking to you) honestly think being truly vindictive back is attractive, which is yet another excuse for more playful humour at their expense, ramping it up the mean scale until they get the message. Plenty of modern men can’t take a joke, however light (the attention). It isn’t a competition and escalation’s a girly/gamma thing to do.
Yes, sarcasm is the modern coy. It’s the feminine playfulness after dark. Arch is a synonym for coy, actually. They’re complaining about getting what they want, more feminine women. They expect us to joke like men, when they acknowledge the sexes shouldn’t be acting like one another….

I guess we need to accept this has happened and it's going to get pushier
Not our fault you dunno how to react. Just laugh and move on. That’s it.

The trick is to use it sparingly. It needs to be sharp but to the point.

Sarcasm is simply humor’s dark side, and it would be just as disconcerting if a friend didn’t get your snide remarks.

In the man’s case, as the woman’s, it’s about vulnerability. It’s a vulnerable form of taking a joke, overlapping heavily with self-deprecation.

Sarcasm is a way of proving your values by counter-signalling their opposite.

Don’t do it enough that people think you’re serious though.
