According to some statistics, and my observation, it seems that women apologize more than men in average. What do you think of that? Women might think that they didn't do enough, or they might at some situation offend others, and that might contribute to their fault. So, they would like to apologize more. In men counterpart, they might be a little bit more arrogant in self - confidence. So, they won't easily apologize to others. They might think they are right most of the time.

yes this is true . women are emotionally more sensitive and have more emotional expression. Consequently they are more likely to apologize more intensely and more frequently .

I would say that yes because woman is more emotional more because some time we take thing out of proportion and is the small thing that count once you know it

In what context are you talking? In relationsips? In dealing with the public? This question has to be more specific.

I think that study is completely true. Males have a dominance feature in most of them. They need to be right because they were always put in positions of power. Women, in their mind process, think differently. I think woman also have more sympathy and understanding. Woman can also be more empathic as well. Men, of course do have their arrogance. I think a big chunk of them think they're always right anyway so they don't feel a need to apologize. They rationalize in their mind that they are in the right. I'm trying to change my husbands way of thinking but I think I have better luck with my 8 year old son.

This is true I believe women apologize more than men ..may because when women find fault they feel guilty and they dont feel ashamed from apologizing while men first thing they never agree that they were wrong and if in case they realize that yes they then their ego came in between and dont apologize.
