We all know there a lot of differences between men and women, but one of the biggest differences of all is how emotional they are. While some of this is just stereotypical, there is no doubt that much of this is true, but how much? A lot of this has to do with how willing men and women are to show their emotions to the world. There are still a lot of guys out there who think that crying shows weakness, while a lot of women don't think anything of doing it at all. A woman is way more willing to let themselves look vulnerable when they aren't feeling well, while a guy tends to try and put on a front and act like they are doing fine, even when they aren't. And let's not forget anger. When a lot of guys let themselves go into a total rage they don't feel odd about it at all, but when women do it sometimes they feel a lot of shame.
Where do you fall on the scale? Do you fit in with the norm or are you the type who likes to flip the stereotype on its head? Are you more male or female when it comes to your emotions?
