The Fundamental Distinctions of Male and Female

The distinction between man and female are real and profoundly rooted in human nature and human physiology. Research indicates that it is universal from culture to culture and that it finds expression in almost every area of our life. This idea is fundamental to the scriptural injunction for mankind in Genesis 1:27, "God created man in his image; in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them." The implication is clear in the distinction between the sexes is not only basic to human nature; it is also uniquely reflective of the divine. In some way, we cannot fully grasp, as it presents us with a visible image or picture of the unseen true creator.

To this last thought, we should add that, while the scripture does underscore the importance of the male-female dichotomy, and while it does represent this dichotomy as being fundamental to human nature and offers us some basic principles. It does not give us an itemized description of maleness and femaleness, not does it tell us exactly how this distinctions is supposed to be played out in many of the details of everyday life.

For that reason, we have to look up to God's design in creation and try to draw some conclusions based on our observations. In the course of this investigation, we must make sure that the differences we posit are genuine creation-based, not merely culturally determined. They must be humanly universal, internationally, inter-culturally, and historically consistent and valid.

Each individual is unique. There are many different styles of masculinity and femininity, and every reader could probably cite some additional characteristics that seem basic to his or her identity as a man or a woman. Keeping these qualifiers in mind, we would suggest that the qualities enumerated and summarized, represent a good starting point from which to begin building a basic understanding of the essential maleness and femaleness in the society.

The Orientation of Male is outwardly driving life

Explorative Strategy - Male is known for discovering identity in the world, where he can find his purpose and destiny in life.

Determined to deliver ghetto goods - A man places great stock in knowing that he has what it takes to complete the quest and accomplish the task at hand.

Need to know what is next - Unlike a woman, he is not inclined to cuddle, to savour meaningful experiences, or to linger at the moment. Generally speaking, he is anxious to move on to the next level.

Opportunitic - To put it another way, the male is a doer and in the whole analysis, his the urge and the opportunity to get it done

Take chances - To seize and make the most of his opportunities, a boy or a man must be willing to take chances. accordingly, a propensity to run a certain degree of risk is fundamental to the character.

Initiator - All of this presumes a certain willingness and ability to take the bull by the horns and make things happen. It also suggests that leadership, while not necessarily an exclusively male prerogative, is nevertheless more deeply rooted in men and boys.

Active and Aggressive - There is an obvious connection between initiation and active aggression. In the light of this, it is interesting to note that the male brain is two-and-a-half times larger and more vital in the center devoted to aggression and action than the female brain.

Competitive and Dominant - Men want the best and will expend incredible energy towards getting it.

The perspective about female is more of inwardly driving life

Prefer modesty - A confident woman knows that she possesses something very precious and valuable - the power of her femininity - and she is driven by an innate desire to protect it, where modesty is fundamental to her nature.

Caring - The female is more naturally inclined to respond to the distressed, the needy, or the hurting with immediate compassion and care.

Use words - Men talk to communicate information or ideas. Women talk to communicate feelings and thoughts. As a result, women tend to use more words than men.
