I had this thought while talking to a student in my "Social Structure" class about men's and women's approach to problem solving.
Men are much more given to Attention Deficit Disorder. I think that men are more likely to satisfice - to pick the first option that works, rather than trying to get perfect information about all options.
Women are much more given to eating disorders. I think that women are more likely to maximize - to try for perfect information and perfect control.
So far, all I have is a good lumper's hunch. But I think there is something deep here.
