Women are the tribe chiefs and leaders, as well as the innovators. But I am not sure how to find out who are the independent, deep and rational thinkers and geniuses in these communities. Just in the same way I find hard to know who are those in our communities. IsnÂ´t thought a silent process? Or is it indeed a way to recognize a sage with total agreement for anyone who meets him/her? Is it really possible to make a list of dead and alive wise humans?
Who are the sexual aggressors? That's what we need to know.
Could you elaborate on this? Is there a reason why the gender that includes the sexual agressors tends to include the wise individuals too? Why would that be?
(...) the Woman concept in general tends to describe individuals as either masculine or feminine, in a "full vs empty" fashion, i.e. someone is 80% masculine therefore is 20% feminine.
The idea is that masculinity equates with consciousness, so it follows that whatever part of a person is not masculine (conscious) is unconscious.
My point is that masculinity is not the inverse of femininity, but they are independent human characteristics, so that even if masculinity equals consciousness, it doesnÂ´t follows that femininity equals unconsciousness, because they are independent parameters, say, like height and weight.
ThatÂ´s what psychologists see with the tests, that you cannot know about your level of masculinity by taking the femininity test only, and viceversa, so that someone could be 40% masculine and 90% feminine, or 60% and 60%, or 20% and 10%, because they refer to different things.
So, it could be that you are 100% masculine (and therefore 100% conscious if the masculinity=consciousness concept is true), but you could also be 60% feminine at the same time, in addition to the masculinity.
Test for masculinity
Test for femininity
I find interesting that psychologists recognize another characteristic that they call androgyny which is a set of behavioral and attitude responses that occur in both genders, but that go in opposite direction depending of the gender: in this case having a more pure masculine response means having less of a feminine response. So for androgynous responses (but only for those) there exist a masculine/femenine gradient. Could these androgynous responses what you guys refer as wisdom when given in a masculine fashion?
