Who are better secret keepers ... Men or Women

February 21, 2012 4:22am CST
experience based comments please ....... In my experience gender does not matter when it comes to keeping secrets it depends on the person, but the general idea is that men are better keeping at men's secrets and women are better keeping at women's secrets :D .... cheers

Well, I don't really know which gender wins in my opinion. So far, my secrets have safe with both gender, as I have shared some to friends of both sides. Although I have to mention that a certain female friend of mine would love to share secrets of others to me, and now I wonder if my secret is safe with her. Oh no... Oh well...

Of course men! I'm telling this based on experience. I am a lady, and I admit I find it hard to keep secrets. I am talkative in nature, but there are some secrets which are really important not to tell that I really do keep.

I guess it depends on the person not on gender. People are people, different in their own ways. Everyone can be a good secret keepers and they can prove that they can be trustworthy

I think men are better secret keepers based on my experience. But if we are going to analyze it logically, gender does not matter, it all depends on the character of the person who has the secret. But to be safe, it would be best not to share the secret because in the first place, it is a secret. :)

In our house, I am much better at keeping secrets than my husbandd. kHe gets mad sometimes when he tells me a secret ago about one of our neighbors, and I let hi m know that I've known that for weeks. I'm usually sorry that I said anything, but it's hard not to play the "got ya" game.

That's a hard question to answer. Based on my personel experience I would say that women tend to 'spill the beans' more than men. Men seem to be better secret keepers but there are some men who like to tickle the ears and give away much details of secrets too when given the chance; they can be more fickle than women.

Based on my experience, men are best in keeping secrets. They have this so called word of honor.

hmmmmmmmmmmm... for me no offense but guys... we girls love to gossips but we dont give every single detail and names... but guys i've heard alot of them talking about things and gossips with names and details... especially when they are all boys. i dont know why they love doing it... but maybe not all guys are like that.,.. maybe it depends upon the person if he or she can keep a secret... but to keep your secret safe then tell no one... because even your bestfriend can tell your secrets to anybody... i have experienced that already and he is a guy.. too bad for me

Men I would say. Women have a reputation of being gossipers and usually let the cat out of the proverbial bag.

I think men is more discreet than women. I'm a girl but I have more trust men for keeping a secrets. A girl like me loves to talk, love to share secrets with other girls specially if it is your bestfriend.

Both the gender can keep secrecy when the circumstances compel. According to my idea woman have more endurance capacity than man. So definitely woman have more capacity to maintain secrecy than man.

Exactly, it depends on the person not from the gender. But something I always thought is: If you really want a secret to be kept safe, keep it nowhere else but inside your mind, if you tell it to somebody then deep in yourself you want it to be shared, and if that happens you can't blame no one but yourself.

Keep other people secret is a big responsibility for someone.Its mean you can't simply tell the secret to another person.No matter what gender,if he or she can be trust so they are the right person to share our secret.Like you say..depend on person.

a pleasant day crippledsoul, with reference to your main topic, for me it not depends on the gender as to who better keeps the secret. hence, it is on the personality and trait of the person as to how he or she will keep the secret. aside from that, it is on how the person will handle your secret, there are times, the secret was being divulge accidentally specially when a similar situation was being discussed. what important is, sometimes, it is better to keep your secret within your heart especially if you are quite hesitant to talk about it. cheers.

Depends on what is the secret, some men and women are good secret keepers but how good they are at keeping secrets depends on what kind of secrets they are keeping. Is it a bad secret, naughty secret, funny, embarrassing secret. So the conclusion is both are equal.

It depends on the subject matter. If it is an issue pertaining to other people, both men are women are basketmouths. When it comes to personal issues especially things not easily accepted by the society, women keep more secret than men and are ready to take their secrets to the grave. Things which affect their relationships with their husbands/male lovers are never disclosed even under oath with any sacred object.

hi crippled soul, in my part, i think gender that not matter what matters most is the person you entrust your secret to. There are some guys that can't hold their mouth and also with the women. Better yet if it's too confidential, just share your secrets to God.
