Girls take in more sensory data than boys. On average, they hear better, smell better, and take in more information through fingertips and skin. (Gurian, Michael, and Patricia Henley with Terry Trueman. Boys and Girls Learn Differently! p 27. San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, A Wiley Company, 2001.)

At two months of age, boys are particularly attracted to visual stimuli, a tendency that seems to persist throughout life. Girls respond more to auditory stimuli. This also persists throughout life. (Stump, Jane Barr, PhD. What’s the Difference? p 33. NY: William Morrow and Company, Inc., 1985.)

Female brain is organized to respond more sensitively to all sensory stimuli. (Moir, Anne, and David Jessel. Brain Sex. p 17. NY: Carol Publishing Group, 1989, 1991.)

Women have more finely tuned sensory skills than men. Women have superior sensitivity in differentiating tone changes in voice volume and pitch, and at differentiating sounds. Men are better at identifying where the sounds are coming from. (Pease, Barbara and Allan. Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps. p 31-32. NY: Broadway Books, 1998.)
