Women only talk a tiny bit more than men

Who talks more, men or women? Your guess may likely be wrong - Health -
A six-year series of studies published in the journal Science in 2007 of some 400 U.S. and Mexican male and female university students, showed that women spoke a daily average of 16,215 words a day, versus 15,669 for the guys.
The group dynamics are fascinating: women talk more in small groups and less in large groups. It may be that men think women always talk more because they're more often in small group situations where women do talk more.


  1. Looking at the study methodology, I think the idiosyncratic nature and size of the sample make it hard to draw general conclusions.
