AND YET YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO DOTE ON THE YACK-YACK-YACK....:

Women only hear properly when gossiping or eavesdropping (Daily Telegraph, 09 May 2009)

More than two thirds of women admitted that a gossip with friends is the only time they are properly listening to what is being said.

The same percentage think they hear most intently when they are trying to eavesdrop on an argument taking place nearby. [...]

[W]omen admitted they only really hear 70 per cent of the conversations they have with their partner.

But when it comes to talking to their best friend, women give their full attention to more than three quarters of what is spoken.
