UNIONDALE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A recent scientific finding is getting plenty of people talking. There appears to be an explanation to why women talk more than men.
In the battle of the sexes, when it comes to who talks more, there’s one clear winner. Any hairdresser can tell you the answer is women, but now there’s scientific proof to back it up, CBS 2’s Carolyn Gusoff reported Friday.
Women do talk more than men — a lot more.
According to a new study by the University of Maryland School of Medicine, the average woman speaks about 20,000 words a day. The average man, meanwhile, speaks a mere 7,000 words.
