Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, the catchy title of the 1992 bestseller by John Gray, succinctly expresses an ancient dilemma. What--if anything--do men's and women's brains do differently?
The general statement that men and women respond and behave differently under the same circumstances is true; For example, from the crib, male babies tend to be more aggressive and females more passive. As adults, in spatial operations, men have the edge in such skills as negotiating a maze, reading a map, and quickly discriminating between right and left. Men also perform better than women when asked to visualize an object and imagine rotating it. On the other hand, women tend to perform better than men when asked to look at objects of different shapes, sizes, and colors, and then to group them in some order.
This still doesn't explian why a woman turns the map all around when a man is asking for the road to travel, while I like the map at one point so I can better visualize our position. Help!

Do not stay in the hostel on the other side of the Danube (away from the Hauptplatz) and it is located in Linz's tallest building. You have to go through a weird parking garage in a gigantic building and the place is full of bizarre carnies. Most Pensionen on the main Hauptplatz in Linz are fine and inexpensive compared to other areas of Austria.

For a city of its size Linz felt very safe, but obviously you should take the usual precautions. There were a few rough looking characters in the centre, but they weren't bothering anyone. The only thing that disturbed me about the city was the beggars. They were completely harmless, not aggressive like in some cities, but they had a peculiar manner of genuflecting, bent down on their knees with hands outstretched, rocking back and forth in a most pitiful manner. I was surprised that people could humiliate themselves in this way, and I don't know if that is a reflection on the generosity of the Linzer people, or if it is just a traditional way of begging in that region of the world. It was effective, inducing in me feelings of such pity that I immediately reached into my pocket for some change, but after a few streets of this, I obviously became inured. Not a danger, but not pleasant either.
