Q: According to new study (out of the University of
California, Riverside) contrary to what an age-old stereotype….Men do THIS just
as much as women… What is it?
More specifically… NEGATIVE gossip
The researchers found women DO gossip more than men . . . but only when it comes to saying neutral things about people like, “Hey, did you hear Jesse is moving?”
When it comes to negative gossip and talking about people behind their backs, men do it and love it JUST as much as women.
The survey also found about 14% of our conversations are gossip, so about 52 minutes’ worth a day.
And we’re almost 10 times more likely to share gossip about people we know than share celebrity gossip.
