Women Perform Better than Men In Warmer Temperaturesadmin 23rd May 2019 0 COMMENTS
According to this article by the Guardian UK, women work better in warmer temperatures. The news report quoted a study published in the journal PLOS On. The research, which studied 500 men and women was carried out in Germany. Men and women were required to perform a series of tasks in a variety of temperatures.
Women performed better in Maths and verbal tasks at higher temperatures. Men on the other hand, performed remarkably lower. However, in lower and cooler temperatures, men performed better. The significance in their performance was very large according to the study.
The article quoted from the studying saying that “our findings suggest that gender mixed workplaces may be able to increase productivity by setting the thermostat higher than current standards.”
What does this mean for people living in warmer climates? Does this mean women should perform better than men in Africa for example?
