Abstract

Stereotypically, women have been regarded as more emotional than men. Presumsably, men learn that “big boys don’t cry” and tend to inhibit the spontaneous expression of emotion (except in special restricted circumstances, e.g., at sports events). But there is an important exception to this stereotype. In the case of anger, women are thought to be less, not more, emotional than men.
