Yes, Your Significant Other Does Have Selective Hearing
If you feel like your significant other sometimes tunes you out . . . well, congratulations on being like EVERYONE else. And . . . it's TRUE.
According to a new study out of England, both men and women really DO tune out words they subconsciously don't find relevant.
For the study, the researchers picked stereotypically "male" words like "beer" and "football" . . . and stereotypically "female" words like "chocolate" and "shopping."
Then they had men and women listen to a conversation, and report on what they heard.
Men were more likely to remember the parts that featured the male words and forget the other parts . . . women were more likely to remember the parts with female words and forget the rest. (Daily Mail)
