Transcript: Why We Cry A study from 2012 found that women have 60% more prolactin than men in order to use it to stimulate the production of milk for their babies. Emotional tears have high amounts of prolactin, which could be why women emotionally cry more than men, even if they cry about the same things. Sarah Goode Crying Frequency Studies have found that, on average, women cry two to five times a month, three to five times more often than men. The difference between male and female crying frequency shows regardless of the county, indicating hormones may play a factor. If we cry over the same big things, do women just cry over little things more? Why? I could see how gender roles and stereotypes affect this, but I wanted to know if there was a biological factor. Side note- Works Cited Feynman Notebook Presentation Some people cry all the time, about anything (me) and others rarely cry. Here is some of the research I found at first on the topic: Experts report that society gives women permission to cry, while it restricts men because it can be seen as a sign of weakness. Trauma or anxiety can increase frequency of crying Citation: Kehinde AJ, Ogugu SE, James BI, Paul DK, Racheal AM, et al.

It All Comes Down to Hormones Humans are the only organisms that can have tears based on emotions. So, if you see an animal crying it is not because they are sad but because they are possibly in pain or another reason. Why Do Some People Cry More Than Others? Women Tend to Cry More Than Men I got interested in this topic after we watched the video on crying, our tears and the different types of them. It made me want to know if there was a theory or facts on why some people cry more than others. "Overall, men and women cry over the same things, like the death of a loved one, romantic breakups and homesickness. Women may cry more over smaller events, like a fight or computer crash, but, "Remarkably, men cry relatively more often in reaction to positive events.” Testosterone also appears to lower or inhibit emotional crying, also possibly contributing to why men cry less than women.
