Understanding the Mars Brain & Venus Brain.

In his TEDxBend, Best-selling Author and Relationship Expert John Gray discusses the Mars Brain and the Venus Brain, and the importance of understanding, respecting and appreciating their differences in both personal and professional relationships.

Gray talks about how important trust, honesty and good communication is in a relationship, and how men and women can avoid miscommunication to find a middle ground of understanding in a relationship…

Here is a simple test in Gender Intelligence: who has a better bigger memory? Women or men? Women. This is proven. The hippocampus in a woman’s brain is twice as big as in a man’s brain. The second stores like a library recording everything on the first floor. On the second floor she records every mistake you’ve ever made. And something she can’t do much about is when she is stressed. When she is stressed, blood flow goes to that second floor. The elevator, she goes up, she forgets every good thing you’ve ever done and remembers every mistake you made. And how does she get off that floor? She’s got to lower her stress, she cannot forget it. So what does she do? What’s a woman’s reaction? Just measure the brain, there’s wonderful brain studies now.”

An all-time bestselling author of 17 books sold in 45 languages, including ‘Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus‘, Gray is arguably the world’s foremost expert on relationships.

He’s appeared on Oprah, The Today Show, Good Morning America, The View and Larry King. He’s also been profiled in Newsweek, Time, Forbes, USA Today, and People Magazine.
