    11- I’m not sure that there is a demonstrable difference between men and women. May be true since women are more likely to be democrats, family and group thinkers. Men more individuals. Women more likely to agree with social programs for the good of all. Women are physically weaker and so they * have * to cooperate to get things done. 

    12- true for some types. Eg social types. False for those with anxiety disorders etc

    13- ooh, interesting. Could be true . Needs more work

    14- again needs studies.  I suspect less of a correlation than we’d think

    15 -true

    16-  could be true but again needs evidence 

    17- true or the phrase wouldn’t have been coined

    18- true

    19- needs evidence. Sometimes true I expect 

    20 -true

    11. False, women tend to not care about the greater good, but instead simply won't act unless everyone agrees with the plan. This does not mean that they choose to do something that benefits everyone, as often the way they reach consensus is by shaming and bullying the women who don't fall in line until they do.

    12. False, people often push people away when they're stressed.

    13. True, they have different standards from their culture but they do discriminate between different looking faces.14. True

    15. False, that's an exaggeration, the two people do need to complete each other with some of their differences but they should still have more in common than not if they hope for the relationship to last.16. False, men are just horndogs so in their minds attractive women are sexual before any friendly gestures take place, women are the ones thinking every friendly action by men has something to do with them wanting sex (I don't blame them for assuming that because like I said, men are horndogs)17. True, but usually only temporarily.18. False, it really depends on the person whether they help others19. False, because people often look at what everyone else are doing to decide their own actions, which means that there's a higher likelihood of all 3 people seeing that the other two haven't reacted to the emergency, which causes them to not do anything either. However if one does break out of that mindset to help the person then the other two will follow. If there's only 1 person there then that person will have no one else to look to and will therefore be more likely to just react to the emergency itself.20. True
