13 Unusual Facts About Females That Are Totally True...

All of those books on how to understand women have nothing about the biological and social

facts of the fairer side of humanity. For example, why they live 210 years longer

than men across the world. Come and get to know little incredible things that turned

out to be true about women.

1. Women see more colors...

Ever argued with your female friend over those white curtains that she claimed to be either

eggshell or cream? Well, thats due to women seeing on average 20% more differences in

colors and shapes.

2. The female body has a lower resistance to alcohol...

Believe it or not, but alcohol is even more dangerous for women as they are more prone

to liver disease like hepatitis (an inflammation of the liver) and are more likely to die from

liver cirrhosis (a chronic disease). It is also more likely that women will suffer brain

damage from alcohol like loss of mental functions and reduced brain size.

3. Maturity is attractive...

And not only because of the Oedipus complex. Various studies have shown that a woman is

more attractive the more fertile she looks, so women who have given birth, grown into

a very feminine body, or do not use birth control are way more attractive to men.

4. The average woman will eat 4 lb of lipstick in her lifetime...

When you take the average number of lipsticks bought throughout a lifetime and their average

wearability, it comes down to women licking off or eating with food about 4 lb of lipstick

in their life. That translates to 533.76 lipsticks. Of course, for some women, this number is

way too big (or not big enough), so thats why its an averageit varies with country

and culture.

5. They hate taking risks...

You might have noticed that women are worse risk-takers than men, and there is actually

a scientific reason for that. The anterior cingulate cortex, the part of the brain that

weighs options when making a decision, is larger in women than in men. Some argue that

this was evolutions way of making women better caretakers and saving thetribe

when gathering food and structuring social life.

6. They might make their men fat...

Surprisingly, a lot of men in long-term relationships are getting bigger, and that might be the

doing of their women. They go into ataking caremode that results in feeding their

partner excessively (with the intention of having a strongwarriorby their side).

There is also the unconscious intention of making a man less attractive to other females.

7. Style over comfort...

This curiosity does not have a scientific explanationrather a social one. Society

and media have been pressing women for centuries to hold themselves to a certain standard,

be it small feet or a perky behind, and that results in the majority of women choosing

stylish presentation over comfort.

8. A heightened sense of smell...

Just like the point before, the heightened sense of smell helped our ancestors to survive

and, as women were mainly gatherers, helped them to pick the right foods for the family.

So to appeal to that heightened sensemaybe some flowers?

5. The brain cells are packed more densely in the female brain...

On average, the female brain is 9% smaller than its male counterpart. But this has no

effect on cognitive abilities since the cell count is the same and they are just packed


10. They are the unsung heroes of inventions...

Mary Anderson invented the windshield wiper in 1903. In addition, women over the years

have patented: disposable diapers, paper bags, nonreflective glass, the foot-pedal trash

can, the dishwasher, and many other innovations.

11. Heels were for men...

In the 1600s, heels were brought into womens fashion to mimic the men who wore heels as

a sign of their masculinity and status.

12. Reading faces...

From the very beginning of their lives, women are better at reading faces, gestures, and

voice tones, which makes them superior conversationalists and social leaders. Even in a group of people,

all the social interactions would probably be led by an alpha-type female than an alpha


13. Long live women!

Sometimes the life duration differences between men and women can be up to a decade, but on

average it is at least 23 years all over the world. And this is not only true for human

females. Female orangutans and chimpanzees also outlive their male counterparts.

Even with all that we know about fair ladies, theres still a ton of mysteries to be unraveled.
