Reader's Digest (India) - - Mednews -

Women do apol­o­gize more than men but not for the rea­sons you think, say so­cial psy­chol­o­gists Karina Schu­mann and Michael Ross of the Univer­sity of Water­loo, in Canada. “Our find­ings sug­gest that men apol­o­gize less fre­quently than women not be­cause their egos are more frag­ile but be­cause they have a higher thresh­old for what con­sti­tutes of­fen­sive be­hav­iour.”
