  • Who talks more, men or women? The answer isn’t as obvious as you think

    Time - 07/16/2014

    A study released Tuesday sought to answer the ages-old and oft-debated question, do women really talk more than men? This most recent answer seems to be: well, it depends.

    Northeastern University Professor David Lazer and his team studied 133 adult subjects in either professional or relaxed settings and gave them all “sociometers,” a device about the size of a smart phone that measures social interactions.

    Their results found that the gender who spoke more very much depended on the setting.
