    I love nothing more then to be there for the girl I love, but i'm sure as hell not gonna treat her as weak or needing of my assistance and i'm definitely not going to do so if she doesn't want me to.

    usually I like girls who seek refuge in me but don't necessarily need to nor feel like they need to. I want to be a protector but I hate insecure girls who can't hold their own against the world.

    C'mon! Women have it worse by far! They totter around in impossible spiky heels while still expected to be the primary caregivers to children. Meanwhile, at least in coastal cities, men are free to be pretty much whatever they want.

    Coastal cities?

    I think he meant big, progressive, fairly liberal minded, cities with a lot of exposure to subcultures and the like.

    women for sure. They've been the only minority that has not been a minority and put up with men's shit for so long.

    As human's we are primarily driven by motives of survival and reproduction. I think men generally have the bar set higher by society, as IMO our (western) society leans towards matriarchy ("men conquer worlds, women conquer men") with women typically having the most power when it comes to sex/reproduction.

    Men are perceived to be most successful when they are earning good dollars (good providers), have a powerful/high status in their society and are sexing a or a number of attractive women. Women are perceived to be most successful when they find a successful man to have children with (better chance of having 'high quality' children) and also settle down with so he can provide for her and her children.

    Also, traditionally boys/men are also seen as the pride of the family as they carry on the family's name and legacy, which adds further pressure for them to perform.

    Male expectations: "think abstractly instead of concretely,"
    I'm interested in this part. I've found that men are expected to think concretely, as in look at the world 'practically' and be very hands-on and functional. It seems more tolerable for women to be a little dreamy and imaginative. Although I often feel like social conventions are baised towards the concrete (S) over abstractions (N) regardless of gender. Why do you feel men are encouraged to be more abstract rather than concrete? It's not a take I've encountered much as intellectual matters (despite being the province of men through history, due to chauvinism) are often regarded as 'weak and feminine' compared to the manly, hands-on, physical and concrete.

    To put it simply...

    Socially Ideal Man: ISTP
    Socially Ideal Woman: ENFJ
