Well, as they often seem to do, scientists have once again proven something we all knew already: Men navigate by a general sense of direction, while women navigate by following a specific route, and both methods are about equally effective. Still, this article makes the findings sound interesting.

They're interesting to me, anyway, since I navigate by the "female" method of sticking to the known route every time. Here in Florida, that may just be because I don't know the area well enough yet; I'm just starting to experiment with different routes after living here for a year. But my job requires me to find several strangers' homes every day, and I don't like veering off the planned route because if I do wind up late to an appointment, that could cost me a sale.
