Would you go back in time and kill Hitler to prevent WWII? If you’re a man, science says you might. If you’re a woman, you may leave history as it is.
In a recent study published in The Society of Personality and Social Psychology, researchers from the U.S., Canada, and Germany asked 6,100 men and women a series of questions based on hypothetical moral situations (including killing Hitler), and it turns out that women are less inclined to gut-reaction violence.
The findings suggest that women have a stronger emotional aversion to causing harm than men. However, men and women engage in similar levels of rational thinking about the outcomes of harmful action.
