I know this is supposed to be funny and enlightening, but
Things wrong with this clip: 1. Woman is stupid, unaware, and in denial. 2. Man has total objectivity, clear vision, and ultimate common sense. 3. Both above-mentioned points are made out to be established truths about gender differences. 4. Trivialises woman's need to be heard - it serves no real purpose in this story. 5. Establishes that women are therefore unreasonable, illogical, and basically ridiculous.

so every women has a nail stuck in her head??
I would agree with you IF every women had a nail stuck in her head.Also the women in the video is not stupid or unreasonable in general, just concerning the nail, and regarding this the man in the video at least seems to have a point.Regarding generalizations, normally it's not that extreme, but a in comment #10, women do have a tendency to want to share problems with their husbands, not really because they are looking for a solution or to change something, but because they want sympathy or understanding.However there is a human(!) tendency to avoid dealing with real problems and to find 'strawmen' and things to complain about or to blame certain things that have nothing to do with what they are actually upset about.You know both men and women can be ridiculous, it doesn't have to do with being a man or a women. However the reverse can also not be said: Someone is not ridiculous BECAUSE he is a man or she is a women. I hope you can agree.Isn't it reasonable to deal with a problem, rather than to say 'you can't blame me'?

valued time together
It is so true.... a wife does not want her husband to figure out the problem....she just wants to spend time with him....communicating. We husbands, love the challenge of finding a solution.. we were made for that purpose, our ego is built up, somewhat.. to find every answers to hard situations, as to how to defeat every enemies in our marriages.. then we go on to our own interests. A wife is a more social being...as men we desperately need this balance. She is our helpmeet. ..we have obtained favor with G-d, by having a good wife.Shalom

Nail in the head ...
What has this to do with the fact, that woman are different???I know by lifelone experience, that men can have also a Nail in their head. They would talk in a different way in order to tell rthe other one, that "this nail" is not the reason- And they would not say: "Just listen". How can one think, that stupidity is a sign of being a woman!?
