Do Women blink more often than men?

Hi my readers? Today I was asking myself about blinking rates among men and women, Is there any rates differences? Most people claims that women blink rate is higher than men and others claims different. Is there any physiological differences among men and women that may brought such phenomenon?. The following explanations might give us an answer, they are from various sources with difference ideas and thought about this matter. Lets first understand what does Blinking mean and how does it function.

Blinking is a bodily function that involve a semi-autonomic rapid closing of the eyelid. A single blink is determined by the forceful closing of the eyelid or inactivation of the levator palpebrae superioris and the activation of the palpebral portion of the orbicularis oculi, not the full open and close. It is an essential function of the eye that helps spread tears across and remove irritants from the surface of the cornea and conjunctiva.

Blinking may have other functions since it occurs more often than necessary just to keep the eye lubricated. Researchers think blinking may help us disengage our attention; following blink onset, cortical activity decreases in the dorsal network and increases in the default-mode network, associated with internal processing. Blink speed can be affected by elements such as fatigue, eye injury, medication, and disease, it can also be affected by external stimulus.

There is no scientific evidence that reveals the truth for women to blink more often than men or otherwise. As I explained above blinking have a lot of functions including cleaning and moisturizing the eyes while protecting them from irritants.

Some people claim that women blink twice as much as men do.  Usually, they explain it away by saying that women wear mascara, and ultimately some gets into their eyes, causing them to blink. Also other people saying that most women are shy person, shy may act as external stimul for them to blink more than men. if you want conduct a research for identifying who blink more, automatically women may blink more than men.

Sometimes, you may see some women blink their eyes a little more on purpose in order to emphasize a point, to have you tell them something, etc. If you stare and look at people you will dont really blink unless you absolutely need to. On the other hand, if a woman needs not to blink so much, she can slow down her blinking rate.

Some scientists conduct a research for Identifying blinking rates among men and women, but how comes the results shows women blinking rate is higher than men or otherwise?....The result ultimately depends on the composition of the groups of these men and women. Ultimately, its not about if you are a man or a woman, its about how nervous you are.

Persons who are nervous blink often also more than other people. It is a sign of their emotion. Sometimes even if people are talking with each other they take over the frequency of blinking if the other person is nervous.

So the frequency of blinking depends on a variances between different categories of people by example the work people do, the environment they live and many other factors.

The claim that women blink more often than men or otherwise is not supported by any scientific evidence. If you have any observations, perhaps that could clear up some things about why you think women blink their eyes more than men, you  are free to share your experience below on the comment section.
