In my morning commute to work, I always see women trudge to the metro with their hair still wet and their shoes untied, while men zip along in perfectly ironed suits and sharp brief cases. Now I know why, thanks to the School of Psychology at the University of Barcelona: it’s all coffee’s fault.
A new study showed that coffee has a greater effect on men than women, making the men more awake and more alert, faster.
“Although both the men and women saw an improvement in their activity levels with the coffee, which increased in later measurements, we observed a greater impact among the males,” the Catalan researcher told Science Daily.
What does that mean for you, fellas? Make sure you pour your wife / significant other / female roommate coffee first in the morning — we need a head start. And give us the benefit of the doubt when we’re a little slower in the AM — its our anatomy, not our attitude. Kthx.
