Women try to keep peace when fight erupts with partner
Washington, July 1 (ANI): When a couple get into fight, it is the woman who tries to maintain peace, researchers has suggested.
According to Ashley Randall from University of Arizona, for couples cooperating well with each other, men tend to imitate their partner's mood, while women try to regulate their partner's emotions, according to researchers.
The study examined 44 heterosexual couples in the US who were living together for about six years, Japan Times reported.
The scientists shot footage of each couple while they were conversing about their eating habits, exercise and other aspects of daily life.
The subjects were then made to watch their videos while rating how positive or negative they were feeling at the time of the conversation.
Researchers also looked for signs of cooperation between the couple, like open communication, sympathy, active listening and compromise.
Among couples who cooperated well, the partners seemed to fall into gender distinct roles, with men following an emotional lead and women looking to moderate their partner's emotions.
Randall also suggested that men may be subconsciously syncing their emotions with those of their partner during cooperation in order to avoid a drawn-out talk.
The study has been published in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships. (ANI)
