nghiên cứu cho thấy đàn ông thực sự giỏi chỉ đường hơn phụ nữ...
It turns out some stereotypes actually are true — at least according to one study.

When it comes to navigating (định hướng), men really are better than women at finding their way — but it has nothing to do with a biological advantage, a new study found.

Researchers at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign found that the strength of an individual’s wayfinding (tìm đường) ability simply comes down to the way they were raised.

Society encourages boys to play outside more frequently than girls, allowing them to develop their navigational skills (kỹ năng điều hướng) from a young age.

“Sex differences in behaviour or performance can arise from biological or cultural processes (quá trình văn hóa) that have little to do with evolution (sự tiến hóa),” the researchers wrote in the paper, published Wednesday in The Royal Society.

The study compared the wayfinding abilities of males and females across 21 vastly different species — including otters (rái cá), frogs (ếch), horses (ngựa) and, of course, humans (con người).

The humans in the trial were tested through either virtual reality, or by navigating their way through a real-world city with either only a map in hand or with verbal instructions (hướng dẫn bằng lời nói.).

While females tended to travel farther from their homes, they ran into much more problems than their male counterparts.
