Women in the study recorded the details of their events more clearly and were able to recall the majority of details.
It seems they were able to retrieve their events by focusing on relationships and social interactions surrounding that event.
“These findings are provocative in showing that women and men see their worlds differently, likely due to different cognitive styles, and that gendered ideologies come into play in memory reconstruction,” says study author Qi Wang.
“It appears that, compared with men, women may attend to and encode more information during ongoing events, experience similar rates of forgetting, and then show greater ability to access retained event information at recall.”
