I agree, Joe Psotka. Partners need to understand each other and each other’s needs. People with certain personality types are NOT detail oriented, whether male or female. Others of both genders are detail oriented. In a broad, general sense, women want to process and be heard, and men want to fix. But women are are socialized to be helpers want to fix situations as well. It’s good to know broad principles and then focus on individual specifics with your opposite gender partner.
