What Society Would Look Like If There Were More Men Than Women

Looking through the psychological characteristics of gender, such as personality traits, are there any differences in success and survival durability?

The early age of infancy could tell the edge of boys on mental rotation (the clear visualization even of subject turns ninety degrees) and excellence in verbal skills. Thanks to their two hemispheres working independently, this sets their strength. Whereas baby girls are keen on specific verbal tasks like recognizing emotional expression and being socially attuned, they use equal cerebral hemispheres.

The Difference Between Male and Female Execs

Gender-diverse top management teams display a widespread difference in leadership for adverse industries.

Journal of Vocational Behavior published in 2018  by Bart Wille, Brenton M.Wiernik, Jasmine Vergauwe, Amelie Vrijdags, NikolaTrbovic suggests in a chapter titled “Personality characteristics of male and female executives: Distinct pathways to success?” that both “executive men and women tend to display an archetypical ‘leader traits’ assertiveness, strategic thinking, efficiency, and decisiveness.

The significance of gender roles is systematically compared to familiarity and credibility for executive positions in the business and other industries revolving globally.

Presumably, strengths and weakness technically on the core psychological traits, are having the grounds of similarity; however, the study also reveals that differences in these personality traits are much more emphasized among women than men.

Published Thursday in the journal PLOS Computational Biology by Andrey Rzhetsky from the University of Chicago is the exposed the alteration of sex-ratio of 105 boys born for every 100 girls visible among the population present in the United States, Canada, Denmark, and the Netherlands. Source reliability check, the study was evaluated for the coverage data involving about 150 million people in the US over eight years and nine million Swedish people in a span of 30 years.

Important Factors Contributing to the Ratio

Factors associated with the ratio changes are chemical compound pollutants: polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), iron, lead, carbon monoxide, aluminum in the air, chromium, and arsenic in water. The shifting 3% difference in the male population reveals further reasons for the increase caused by mercury pollution and proximity to industrial plants.

Stressors are out of the picture; even so, they may be considered a factor affecting pregnancy. Hurricane Katrina and the case of the Virginia Tech shooting in the local context were away from associating causes of significant sex-ratio difference.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention claims that the reproductive practices and social practices about sex preferences— males over females, for example, can affect the sex ratio.

Decreases in male birth and even birth termination are also discussed in relation to parental smoking, gestational length, parental age, and birth order.

Physically speaking, men used to have superior strength than women. Now, it seems like the actual somatic women are catching up. Visibly in athletic endeavors, even ultra-events, time phases an enormous change.

On average, men remain built and perceived by having 26lbs (10kg) of skeletal muscle, 40% more upper-body strength, and 33% lower body strength, which women can now attain. These physical attributes actually set off a good balance of competitiveness in different aspects of society—be it job opportunities, competitions, and so forth.

Gender domination in this age of industrialization is dramatically phasing dynamic changes.

Societal Gender Roles

The reorientation of the sex ratio has a visible effect on society. More boys than girls could imply adjustments of society to its different aspects. Too much familiarity with the anticipated masculinity can trigger overcontrol that jeopardizes equality. Even more, it can bring weight to future pursuits.

One prominent example is the toxic view of gender roles and typical gender play for children. Instead of encouraging the development of competencies and creativity of the young, the shaming of stereotypes is damaging. Having the fixation of what toys, clothes, and hobbies someone must possess is not a healthy practice of respect and values to any gender. Now, more women prefer thrilling activities such as mountain biking or overnight boat parties, which does not warrant derogatory remarks.

Final Thoughts

The Council of Europe Convention on helping prevent and combat violence against women (Istanbul Convention) was adopted by the Committee of Ministers in late 2011, where non-physical violence is defined by: psychological violence, stalking, physical violence, forced marriages, sexual violence (including rape), genital mutilation, coerced abortion, and sterilization, sexual harassment, aiding or abetting and attempt, unacceptable justifications for crimes, including crimes committed in the name of so-called honor.

It could mean a heavier demand to permeate equal and fair job opportunities, an extreme effort to cancel discrimination and toxic gender stereotypes, and a need for firm and consistent support on literacy and education systems in promoting awareness and action towards gender-based rights and violence.
