Can this behaviour be attributed to the whole gender? Is it a social construct or the outcome of biological differences? And can we generalise about men's behaviour towards criticism?
David P Schmitt:
A d value of +0.50 is considered "moderate" and indicates that 69 percent of men are higher than the average woman on a particular attribute. Sex differences in spatial rotation skills, certain mathematics abilities (3-dimensional geometry and calculus), and task-oriented leadership (focusing on accomplishing a group goal rather than maintaining harmony within the group) reside within this size range.
