Women make men stupid, says Dutch study

A new study by Dutch researchers at the Radboud University Nijmegen, in the Netherlands revealed that women can temporarily affect a man’s brainpower, even the presence of a female name on an instant message or text was enough to have an impact.

The researchers recorded changes when male participants were told that they were being observed by a woman.

The experiments showed that women weren’t affected in any way by who they believed they were interacting with.

The Dutch researchers could not explain why male reactions were so different from female ones in the study.

Men do think about sex more often than women overall, but not all the time. The age of the participants could also play a role.
