We came across this clip and just haaad to share it with you. It’s about a translator-machine-thingy which translate everything a woman says into language a man can understand. As you might expect, the translation for men is short, to the point and succinct. The translator can also work the other way – translating man-speak for women. And in this case, the translation goes into elaborate sentences and reassurances.
Fer real !?!
While the clip is good for a laugh, it also serves to highlight the big differences between how men and women communicate. Men are looking for direct answers, it’s either a yes or a no, it’s either a go or no-go. Men also talk in shorter sentences, hence not much details there. Men talk in words, not language.
Women, on the other hand, seek reassurance when they communicate, and often one word can have multiple meanings to her. To understand a woman, you have to read her tone of voice, her body language, her facial expression, where her eyes are looking and what she does after she speaks. More effort is required, sure, but think of all the information you get! With 1 look, 1 gesture and 1 word, she can tell you more about your product or your activity than 10 men put together. And when women are the primary purchasers of so many industries (think household, childcare, education, personal care, health, beauty & wellness for a start), it is well worth your time and effort to better understand how women communicate and what she really means when she says what she says.
