Because men are such emotional creatures

day trader


Men are very irrational creatures. I know the mythology about the male psyche claims the opposite, but the cold hard facts have never been of any use to male centred mythology, and nowhere is that more accurate than in the argument over male rationality.


The most motivating force in human history is the male ego. The male ego is also the least rational, most emotional force that ever existed. Bridges don’t get built because people need to get from point a to point b, they get built so a man can beat the architect he fought against in university, or to show off to a girl he’s trying to impress.


Everything that men do or achieve has at its core, some kind of ego drive. It’s to teach their mate a lesson, save face over a drunken argument the night before or prove to everyone from his childhood he’s not a loser.


Even the moon landing happened because the Americans wanted to beat the Russians.


If a man gets jealous of his mate, he will lock in her in the house, make her wear a black shapeless sack over her whole body, cover her face, hands and feet also, refuse to let her speak to any men without his approval, and then build an entire religion to justify his paranoia and fear of losing his woman.


This is not rational behaviour.


In romance novels men don’t pretend they are rational creatures. The men are masculine, gorgeous and powerful – they just aren’t very rational; Same as in life, only theyr're happy to admit it.

  1. Wow, your post are amazing! I happened to come across this blog while I was searching whether men were ego or visually-based and I think I found gold instead! lol. As a guy, I admit, I feel exposed by this particular post and I think men ego-trip because we think casting illusions of whatever we think a "real man" does or looks like, will in turn make us favorable with women. It's a competition and frankly, a lot of guys feel women are fickle- so they feel they need to assert their "manhood" whenever necessary in order to maintain a sense of self-security- hell the problem is most men lack self-security primarily because they're afraid or too prideful to ask for help. The truth is, as you've stated, we're absolutely emotional creatures who are subject, like everyone else, to bouts of irrationality. And we need to stop pretending like we aren't and take a few pointers from the men in romance novels! ;]

  11. I do not like it when any particular gender is referred to as a purely emotional creature. We are all emotional creatures, and have the capacity for logic and reason, but nature just made it so men and woman handle the balance between the two differently. Once people realize this, then a lot of issues in society and in personal relationships will fall away as minuscule fodder. Thank you for your response, I expected a harsh rebuttals in defense of the article. I am glad my post was taken seriously, and not as trolling or rhetorical garbage.
