Communication style- Men tend to be more introspective about their problem and choose to deal with them with their partner. When they do decide to discuss a problem it is usually after much thought and careful consideration. When they are angry they are not angry with the person but with their idea.
One track mind- Men tend to excel better at singular task this may stem from the male role of hunter who is fixated on a singular objective.

Men respect hopes and dreams other things are given less importance.
