Research supports what women have known for years: a woman's intuition-- the ability to understand something immediately without conscious reasoning; a gut feeling-- is strong.

In a study published in "The Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease," scientists used a technology called SPECT to show that women “may exhibit more empathy, intuition, collaboration, self-control and appropriate concern because of increased blood flow to the brain.”

They analyzed 46,000 studies on 25,000 men and women and found women have more blood flow to the brain, especially the parts that control emotions, mood, anxiety and depression.

Basically, science says women know everything (even though we already know that we know everything). Kidding! Kinda.
