I'm sure this is true for some, but I think there are many exceptions. I know some men who are much more interested in subjects like sports and politics. I do agree that there is a certain percentage of the male population that is extremely into music, and the reasons given for that here make sense.

This is an interesting thread, and something I'd never really thought of. So women have things like sad movies to get their feelings out. Men rely on music for that cathartic experience. That's a great theory, it seems to ring true for me.

I think you have something here with the feelings theory. My hubby loves metal music, even though to me most of it just sounds like screaming. He connects to it in a way that I cannot comprehend.

They don't need the inner therapy session that we get when we put on an album we love, close our eyes, and feel all it way way down deep to the very bottom of our souls. And when it's over, we come away just a little bit better than we were before, a little bit more true to that part of ourselves, and perhaps a little bit healed from the wounds we would never let anyone know were there.

This is an old thread, but interesting. While it's true that men are socialized to repress emotion more (which I think is a shame), I'm not sure that translates to a deeper appreciation for music. What Duke describes above certainly happens to me as a female when I listen to music. I'm sure it happens to plenty of other women as well.

I can't say that I've noticed that more men get into music than women. Almost all the women I know love music. However, there are many more men musicians. I think there might be something to that, but what, I have yet to figure out.

This is an interesting topic Duke, thanks. Now that I think about it, it does seem that more men are "in tune" as it were. You would think that music being a more emotional outlet and women being more emotional, that things would be different, but they're not.

Now that I think about it, you do have more men who are singers and songwriters than there are women.

So music appeals more to men than women......go figure.

We are vibrational beings, and music is nothing other than vibration that we are translating and hearing and 'feeling' so it doesn't come as a surprise that ALL people find vibrational alignment with at least one type of music.

Well, I have to disagree with you that women only like music in a social setting. I love to get in my car for a long trip and play all my music over and over. I really miss that these days since I don't get to go as much. Not every idea is 100%.
