Women Have a 'Lot' to Think About When Parking
We spend much of our time searching - for a soulmate, for what to wear Friday night and for our cars in crowded parking lots. But according to a new study published in Cognitive Applied Psychology, when it comes to finding cars at least, men are better than women. It seems women use different techniques.
At a mall in the Netherlands 115 shoppers (59 men and 56 women) took part in the study, and 59 percent of the women reported having problems finding their cars compared to 42 percent of men. Women tend to use landmarks to remember where they parked, and they take more detours than men.
Apparently, no one in the Netherlands has heard of valet parking or has a key fob that triggers the alarm on their car. Another thing the study didn’t address is which gender is better at finding a great deal at the mall. But we know the answer to that already.
