 The Libido Of Men And Women

Research indicates that measured physiological signs of arousal are self-reported more accurately in men than in women. Also, straight and lesbian women show physiological signs of arousal when watching sexual videos regardless of who was with whom.

Unresolved conflicts

The idea that couples must communicate and resolve all of their problems is a myth. The truth is, trying to resolve a conflict can sometimes create more problems than it fixes.

Some conflict is inevitable and there will always be certain things you don’t like about your partner or things you don’t agree with, and that this is fine. You shouldn’t let some disagreements get in the way of what is otherwise a happy and healthy relationship.

Other People Always Look Stupid

In the book Thinking, Fast and Slow, Daniel Kahneman states that we instantly recognize other people’s stupidity, slips and mistakes, but not our own.

When we see other people we instantly judge their actions as silly or sound, but when we make a mistake ourselves, we have long justifications ready, adding context to our stupid actions that would not be known to anyone.
