We’ve all heard that men are more "visually oriented" than women are - here’s an interesting twist on this line of thought. A recent study found that when men viewed a sexy image, they performed more poorly in a game that focused on making decisions. Testosterone is thought to be the cause of this phenomenon; the female participants in the study showed no change in their decisionmaking abilities after viewing the images.
