THE MALE COGNITIVE LOAD?
by Simon StrÃ¶m
How is the male cognitive load operationalized?
It isn’t as easily because of greater variation and division of labor among the male population. But the most basic load to which males are predisposed to carry should be the dominance hierarchy and male peer group.
It probably goes a lot deeper and varies with class and IQ, and I bet there are actually evolved, discrete, ‘archetypical male clusters’ beyond the random, gaussian normal distribution of psychometric traits traits, (and the male-female division common to all of the animal kingdom.)
Whereas the female cognitive load varies in sophistication along the class or IQ axis, I think the lifecycle of the reproductive bottleneck-sex limits the evolutionary plasticity of its physiological cognitive load.
Men are not only biologically expendable but also evolutionarily plastic and differentiated along multiple axes of skills and ‘loads’.
