Holly, I also wanted to add to your comment that you are right to take care of the roof, in the sense that the roof is how I express the master model of all. If I don't know the model I am imitating and putting myself in harmony with, then my roof job might only be patchwork.

Holly, thank you for your post. ""The roof is built on walls. It doesn't stand in midair."

True. That's why you need to fix it first."  I am not sure about that ;) . My example maybe was not well chosen but what I meant is that a masculine mind is modular ie one box for every category while the feminine mind is holistic ie there is communication between all those boxes. I am sure you would enjoy and find great solace in my new book (also available as an ebook) because a blog is always a very small box... Thank you for your input Holly.

Aleksandar, I will certainly have a look at it.  The model I speak of is the one that was used by all great traditions, we can find it in the sacred texts which Jung studied, and in some well known medical practices ( India and China). These are in fact the proof that the model is right and an echo of the one Nature uses to perfect forms.  What I showed is that the latest brain research results agree with this same model. Every level of human expression is based on the same model thus it is a powerful tool of reorganization and reconstruction . Dr. Assagioli, father of psychosynthesis spoke of an "organic whole" but had no model, as well biopsychosociology has no model.  Here is the model, right there in Love Them Back to LIFE.  If the model you speak of is the same model than I foresee that our future will be extraordinary as more people rediscover and truly understand it.  Thank you Aleksandar.!

"The roof is built on walls. It doesn't stand in midair."

True. That's why you need to fix it first. The structural integrity of your house is at stake. Take your example of the masculine mind and don't worry about the leaves or the duck, know that your son will still think you're the best mom in the world even if you don't have everything completely ready for him (and you didn't mention his age but maybe he could cook a meal for *you*), realize that your friend will still be your friend even though you argue sometimes, call another contractor for the patio, and know that you're brilliant and gorgeous no matter what you weigh. Taxes? Okay, worry about those (most men do too), but don't worry -- get angry -- about the rape in India. To me, anger isn't a characteristic of the masculine or the feminine mind. It's a human reaction to injustice.

When everything above is settled, fix the spa, fill it, pour yourself your favorite drink, ease yourself slowly into the hot foamy water, and raise your glass in a toast to the amazing person that you are.

I mentioned "ghastly souls" because I think men and women generally *do* "get along." We have empathy. Even if men and women think differently (I'm skeptical, but I've bookmarked your blog and look forward to reading more about this) still we can imagine what it's like to be the other, or at least, we WANT to be able to imagine what it's like, and we want to understand. We try. If we didn't, we wouldn't have some of the great characters in literature that happened to have been written by authors of the opposite sex. We write love songs to each other. We dance together. Didn't Hippomenes win Atalanta because Aphrodite helped him understand her feminine desire for beautiful things? The "ghastly souls" are either so self centered that they don't make the effort, or they understand you all too well, and they're being cruel.

Humans are evolving and following phases inherent to the model within Nature.  Those phases can give us the impression that we are falling and close to the ground but we are not. You are right in the sense that the problem is that we have put in place values that prevent us from going further and we have to better understand what a human is to allow ourselves freedom from the shackles we have put in place.The model is within nature, within the brain , within our psyche. Yes genders at every level are different and complementary for the symphony that life is.  Thanks for your input Aleksandar.

The roof is built on walls.It doesn't stand in midair. If you read the article in its entirety you would understand that I explain the difference between  feminine minds and masculine minds. And for more information on gender, which are very relevant, you can read my new book. If gender was irrelevant, men and women would use the same brain structures for the same action.  They don't. If gender isn't relevant than why does some with a micropenis that was surgically removed as infants would suicide themselves later on? There is no such thing as a ghastly soul...:) Thanks for your input!

Your priority is the leaky roof. Don't stress so much over the rest.

To me the issue isn't gender differences. The issue is disagreeable people. Some people, regardless of gender, are just ghastly souls. The gender is irrelevant.
