Why Men Can't See Butter in the fridges and Women Hit the Car in the front and Back

We know that men have long distance tunnel vision and women have wide peripheral vision.

Can you tell what is advantages and disadvantages of long distance tunnel vision and wide peripheral vision?

Generally when men open the fridge for butter of jam etc. they can't see. But when women come, they quickly find the jam or butter in the fridge.

Again question is rised why women can see butter or jam in the fridge but men can't ?

We know that women have wide peripheral vision. Due to this vision it allow them to "see most of the contents of a fridge or cupboard without moving her head."*

Science says that due to oestrogen hormones she easily " identify matching item in a drawer, cupboard, or across a room and later remember objects in a complex random pattern - such as where the butter or jam is in the refrigerator."*

Due to the tunnel vision man can't see the butter or jam in the fridge. And also science says that when a man searching butter or jam in the fridge, he actually "searching in the fridge for the word B-U-T-T-E-R"* or J-A-M. " If it's facing the wrong way, he virtually can't see it"*. Not only this "men move their heads from side to side and up and down as they scan for the missing objects."* This is the reason when men searching an objects, he move their head. This is the disadvantages of the man's long distance tunnel vision.

In a statistics of a car insurance companies tells that in an accident women are hit less in the side as compared to men.


Because " women greater peripheral vision allow them to see traffic approaching from the side. They are more likely to be hit in the front or back of the car while attempting to reverse parallel park"*. But due to long distance tunnel vision men less hit front or back of the car.
