Studies have shown that the male sees his relationship to others in terms of higher-lower, faster-slower, first-second. A female sees her relationships in less competitive terms: similar to-different from, know her-don’t know her.

If that product works for her, it’ll probably work for me.” Women also relate better to “warmer” than to “winner.”
