A new study published in the Journal of Molecular Psychiatry has reported:
Women are more likely to have a 'mind-reading' gene mutation that gives them the ability to read a person's thoughts and emotions by looking at their eyes ...
The scientists found that the genetic variants on chromosome 3 in women are associated with their ability to read the mind in the eyes — known as cognitive empathy ...
"This new study demonstrates that empathy is partly genetic, but we should not lose sight of other important social factors such as early upbringing and postnatal experience," said Professor Bourgeron.
This new study just might boost the sale of men’s sunglasses!
I'm not sure whether I believe these new findings. I mean seriously, if women really could read their husbands minds, the result wouldn’t be “cognitive empathy,” it would be cognitive rage!
It’s a good thing only God knows the actual thoughts that go through our minds. Wait, what? Maybe that isn’t such a good thing. Not if we have anything we would prefer to hide!
“Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13).
