Spaghetti or Waffles

I can’t wait to share this ingenious analogy I heard recently on describing the differences between how Women and Men think and process life. Bare with me while I summarize… But if you want to read the entire article by Bill and Pam Farrel:


Women process and think like a plate of spaghetti. How they talk or act is all intertwined like a plate of spaghetti noodles. Attempting to isolate (grab) one noodle is impossible because women’s thought processes and issues are connected on several levels.


Men on the other hand compartmentalize and deal with life like a waffle. Each box of the waffle is one thought or issue, isolated from the other boxes. Men live in one box at a time.

Respect and appreciate both because they are amazing in their own way!
