Men are Direct...
There. You have the answer on how to understand the male point of view. Thank
you for listening.
Oh, you want further details of how men view life? Some insight from their point
of view? Okay, sure. Here are some nuggets:
When it comes to a female in a man’s life, he’s constantly in threat-assessment
mode. When a woman simply wants a hug when she’s upset, men are looking how to
"fix" what is wrong: eliminate threats first, care for emotions second.
A man speaks his mind and is driven by the facts of any given
circumstance. Men always want to solve the puzzle. Or, as needed, eliminate the
threat. (See above.)
It is incredibly addictive for men. Addictive to the level of combining all the
great things in life together in one source and then multiplying that times a
billion. Adrenaline draws out a level of mental clarity that can be described as
playing a five-level chess game—while simultaneously solving large-scale world
issues. All this happens with few spoken words.
Men think in a linear format, one topic at a time. Though when adrenaline flows,
those topics fly by at the speed of light—he alters the course of thought,
re-evaluates for threat assessment, and continues with the primary goal
seamlessly—and no one will be aware the process is even happening.
Men are always seeking peace, even while their primal-side is vigilant for
threats. A simple walk across a parking lot involves a scan for potential risks
to his loved ones or himself. A walk out the front door begins with an
assessment of any dangers from either nature or humanity. We believe vigilance
helps ensure peace.
A man’s “kryptonite” is any tear shed by their woman. But you already knew that.
Though maybe you should know the real reason. It scares them to their
core—this truth cannot be overstated. Seeing tears flow short-circuits the male
mind. All emotions flow at once. With all his will, a man wants to reach in and
fix what is wrong.
Most men, and I say this as a near absolute, will lay down their lives for the
ones they love. A rare few will do it for people they have never met. The depth
of protection-minded mental programming from a distant evolutionary time is
strong in the very few. That's one of the many reasons why law enforcement
agencies and the special forces in military units only accept approximately
one-percent of all those who show interest in their respective organizations.
They need those who will give everything of themselves without delay of thought.
Men are not.
