Have you read Men are from Mars Women are from Venus by John Gray. I have just started reading it and find it so interesting. John documented here men and women thought processes and the differences among them as well as how to handle conflicts/situations. Its worth reading.

I've read it. Very good book. My wife and I have learned so much from it.
He's written other Mars Venus books as well, such as Mars/Venus on a Date and Mars/Venus in the Bedroom (which is very strange read).

I read of the "Men are from Mars..." books and I hated it. But then, it was in Russia, and the book is about American men and women.

I've always been under the impression that men made of snails and puppy dog tails, and women from sugar and spice and everything nice.
At least, that's the way women smell

From Chapter 2
==============
The most frequently expressed complaint women have about men is that men don't listen.

I think Dave Barry (a humour columnist and pulitzer prize winner) in Florida explained the differences best. Since i don't have permission to duplicate his work, here is a link.

As usual, Dave has it exactly right.

Here's a story abt willpower and mind.
A king was very happy with one of his servants. He was so devoted, so totally devoted to the king; he was always ready to sacrifice his life for the king. The king was immensely happy, and many times he has saved the king, risking his own life. He was the king's bodyguard.
One day the king was feeling so happy with the man, he said, "If you desire anything, if you have any desire, just tell me and I will fulfill it. You have done so much for me that I can never show my gratitude, I can never repay you, but today I would like to fulfill any of your wishes whatsoever it is."
The servant said, "You have already given me too much. I am so blessed just by being always with you ― I don't need anything."
But the king insisted. The more the servant said, "There is no need," the more the king insisted. Finally the servant said, "Then it's okay. You make me the king for twenty-four hours and you be the guard."
The king was a little apprehensive, afraid, but he was a man of his word and he had to fulfill the desire. So for twenty-four hours he became the guard and the guard became the king. And do you know what the guard did? The first thing that he did, he ordered the king to be killed, sentenced to death!
The king said, "What are you doing?"
He said, "You keep quiet! You are simply the guard and nothing more. It is my wish and now I am the king!"
The king was killed, and the servant became the king forever.
The mind is one of the most beautiful, the most complex, the most evolved mechanisms. It has served you well, it serves you well. Because of its services you have repeated the same story in your life.but once u made mind as a master over ur will,u cant control ur life and ur life will become worthless.You can use the mind.and u can make mind within your hands according to ur wish.mind is ur servent.not master.
a women's soul is more mind than willpower(and mind is so complex that any thought can enter into mind anytime,so unpredictable).and a male is more willpower than mind.there is exceptions.but mostly in emotional way,women is more mind oriented than head.man is more will oriented.so man naturally need to get the dominance over women just as will needs dominence over mind.
