Men are socialized since birth to think their feelings and thoughts are the objective truth.
They are taught they are generally right about something, unless contradicted by another male with equal or more authority. Men subconsciously believe they are firmly right about things so much they won’t even consider alternative perspectives unless it comes from a place of higher authority.
Men are socialized to believe women are inherently wrong, and that is why women are “crazy”, because it is so difficult for men to even consider the possibility that they don’t know shit.
This is why men often offer strong opinions on topics they just heard about, especially if they’re contradicting a woman.
This is because people will respect a man’s opinion and give his words weight even if he has zero background in the subject because men are considered credible by default.
Women are considered wrong by default and must argue their way to display their truth, no matter how strong their credentials.
Men probably have to tell themselves they’re logical all the time just to keep up the lie that feeds their ego.
Thinking is difficult work for a man who is used to instantly being told he is right, while women are constantly being argued against and therefore exploring the topics more deeply and doing more thinking.
