Comment reptile brain vs mammalian brain (Score 1) 786

Lack of empathy isn't just the fault of autism, it's also due to the nature of the business.

When I'm coding I'm in a creative, but heavily logical space. My brain is just crunching paths, 1s and 0s and firmly sat on the reptile side of the fence. If I want to go out and socialise with people and relax the mammalian, emotional, side will need some warming up, especially after 9 hours of heavy logical, reptile thinking.

This is the nature of normal people's brains, male or female.

To have someone firmly using the logical side of their brain and then expect them to be immediately empathic is just not going to work, regardless of gender and focus.
