It is difficult to analyse the credibility of a stereotype. Although many stereotypes are helpful to some degree in forming an opinion, sometimes they’re far from the truth. One example of a very common stereotype is that women talk more than men.
Talkativeness depends on several factors such as mood, thought process, being unwell, nature, instantaneous behaviour, etc. In light of such a variety of influences, is it right to assume that gender is also a factor as is commonly believed?
