Male & Female Psychology

Differences in Male & Females

When attempting to construct a theory on the diversity between humans, it is necessary to also consider that studies have confirmed that biological sex creates psychological differences among individuals. Therefore two individuals of the same cognitive type and even the same development will still differ from each other by the features that their sex adds to their personality.  Dr. Jordan Peterson encapsulates the nature of these differences in the video below:

Females & Higher F Priority

On average, females will self-assess as higher in the ethical (F) spectrum compared to their male counterparts. That means that a Ti-lead female will, for example, see herself somewhat in the standard Fi description. Likewise, a Te-lead female will often sympathize more with the Fe description. Women are higher in agreeableness which is heavily associated with the light aspects of the ethical functions (seelie & adaptive). This is not always the case, but is one factor that shifts the baseline experience for many women.

Males & Higher T Priority

Oppositely, men will self-assess as higher in the logical (T) spectrum compared to their female counterparts. That means that an Fe-lead male will often identify more with the standard Te description. Additionally, males will tend to be disagreeable and more highly correlated to the dark aspects of the ethical functions (unseelie & directive). This is not always the case, but is one factor that shifts the baseline experience for many men.
