Question:

I was told last night by a man in his mid-forties that men look at things from a point A to point B perspective. In other words, they see the beginning and the end goal, but not much in between.

On the other hand, women focus more on the entire process of how you get to point A to point B.

If you're a guy let me know what you think. Is this true?

I think for the most part that is true, however, all guys are different. I am one man who tends to be that way but it even depends on who I am sharing the point A to point B experience with. While other ment I know take a whole different apprpach still. Safe to say, that there is no set pattern for all men.

Thanks for the tip...I feel very much more enlightened about the world of men now.

No. These strokes are too broad. To most of us men it seems that women are interested in the process; the smaller, intermediate tasks, when in fact they are interested in the relationships involved. Notice how your advisor still sees the world in his task framework? To men life is a set of tasks, small and large, first, intermediate and final. To women life is a set of relationships, passing and enduring, friendly, close and intimate. The better distinction is that men are bent towards tasks while women, towards relationships.
