Women have power when they have to wink: Although rumors of “more women blinking” are hard to support with scientific facts, it is popularly believed that women’s blindfolds are more productive than their male counterparts, flashing twice as much. The numbers vary for the number of times a person blinks in one minute, but the average number is estimated to be 15 or once every four seconds, although this can increase when a person is anxious, nervous or tired. In addition to the reported age of multiple blinks, Men’s Heath reports that women who use birth control pills flash 32 percent more often than women who don’t take pills.
Scientists say it does not matter if you are a man or a woman. They say that everything depends on the person in question. You can do tests involving groups of men and women, but what would the results say?
Nervous people often blink more often than others. It’s a sign of their emotion. Sometimes, even if people talk to each other, the flashing frequency is taken into account if the other person is nervous. Thus, the blink rate depends on the variance between different categories of people, such as the work people do, the environment in which they live and many other factors.
So, do women blink more than men? It is safe to say that there is no evidence to support this claim.
