It is widely believed that women are more psychic than men. It is certainly true that far more women than men become professional psychics.
In Quantum Perception, Zak Martin points out that in laboratory experiments, men and women exhibit more or less equal levels of ESP. He adds, however, that " in general women do tend to be more open to psychic experiences than men, and more willing to trust and follow their intuitive feelings. The reason for this may be cultural rather than biological. ESP, along with other forms of sensitivity, has traditionally been regarded - in Western society, at least - as a feminine characteristic, and as a consequence may have been suppressed in men."
Judith Orloff, assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at UCLA, says more or less the same thing in her best-selling book, Guide to Intuitive Healing: "Men can be powerfully intuitive - they have the same capabilities as women. But in our culture, we view intuition as something that's warm and fuzzy, or not masculine, so men have often lost touch with those feelings."
What do you think? Is a woman's intuition more powerful or reliable than a man's? Post your comments below.
