The Empathising-Systemising Theory suggests that our brains are gendered. Are there female and male brains? Some people believe so. It is thought that some people are more empathetic (the female brained) while some are more systematic (the male brained). Empathising involves relating to others on an emotional level through intuition and sensitivity. Systemising involves analysis, construction, and exploration. These distinctions do not necessarily correlate with the biological sex of the person.
