'Stubborn' men no better than women in reading maps

Melbourne, Tue, 21 Aug 2012 ANI

Melbourne, Aug 21 (ANI): More men are leaving their stubborn attitudes and pride behind and ditching maps in preference of navigational advice from their SatNav, a new survey has revealed.

Nationally, 64 percent of males use a GPS device to find their way as opposed to only 50 per cent of females, according to car insurer, AAMI.

AAMI corporate affairs manager Reuben Aitchison told the City News that in the past, men had been more confident to find their own way.

"It was a point of honour, sometimes known as stubbornness," the Daily Telegraph quoted him as saying.

"Their long-suffering wives and girlfriends, meanwhile, insisted on asking for directions, knowing full well it would have to happen eventually," he said.

But Dr Shelli Dubbs from the University of Queensland's School of Psychology said on average it had always been men who did better than women when it came to reading a map.

"I don't think survey is a horrible surprise. Sometimes we think women are bad with directions and yes, men don't want to ask for directions either. (ANI)
