2016 Personality Lecture 12: Gender Differences: Agreeableness and other traits: the Science

Strict social constructionists (believers in the currently dominant college ideology) believe that differences between men and women are environmentally and arbitrarily produced, where they exist at all. Unfortunately, for many reasons, this presumption is simply incorrect. In fact, the reverse is true, insofar as social engineering is concerned: the personality and other differences between men and women MAXIMIZES instead of minimizing in exactly those societies that have moved closest to the egalitarian ideal (the Scandinavian countries). This is because those countries have eradicated most of the environmentally-produced variation in these traits, leaving only those that are genetic to manifest themselves. Sources:
