Men Don't Ask for Help!  Tannen suggests the reason for this annoying tendency is that women consider themselves to be "takers" of information, while men see themselves as the "givers" of information and the experts on all kinds of subjects and matters.  As we'll see in Chapter 4, "The Role of Mother Nature," men perceive space and distance differently than women do and they may, in essence, not feel as though they are lost.  Indeed, they tend to judge themselves more harshly and carry themselves with less confidence than men do.

Linguist Robin Lakoff discovered that women tend to interject more "um­hums" in order to indicate approval when listening to both men and other women. Ahem: Men Interruptus!  In addition, it seems that—once so rudely interrupted—women become increasingly quiet and pause more than usual during the rest of the conversation.  Such male "conversational dominance" was confirmed by researcher Judy Kester, who discovered that men are more likely to answer questions even when the questions are not addressed to them, which in actuality, may be another way of interrupting.

And when it comes to communication skills and strategies—to say nothing of physical strength or biological imperatives—men and women are very different even though they are members of the same species.  The sooner we understand, accept, and embrace this concept, the sooner we can let go of the instinct to compete, dominate, and win!  Let's first look at the way we learn as children.  In Part 2, "Understanding the Great Nature/Nurture Debate," we explore this subject in some depth; for now, it's enough to say that each individual becomes the adult he or she is through a splendid cooperation of their natural, inborn characteristics and societal influences.
