4. We are, however, willing to wander aimlessly when our innate sense of time and distance, which if not refined by use, leaves us never feeling lost or needing to ask for directions. Women, on the other hand, navigate by observation, noticing details and the order in which they appear. Navy Seals are taught that learning to stop and see-taking in their surroundings-is critical to not getting lost.

Men are better at spatial judgment, analytical skills, abstract reasoning, and growing mustaches. We're also more likely to have the need to head offshore. Which is why, my brother, I'll see you outside the inlet and not at the mall.
