I saw this funny image with the head line – “keeping secrets: boys vs girls“, which shows how girls are very bad at keeping secrets. I thought it was hilarious, and just a little bit of a fact. But never did I imagine that it was actually a Fact.
Women can’t keep secrets longer than 47 hours (less than two days…).
“Researchers found that women are overcome by a burning desire to share gossip as soon as they hear it.
They will typically spill the beans to at least one other person in 47 hours and 15 minutes.” – The Telegraph
A study of 3,000 women aged between 18 and 65 also found that four in ten were unable to keep a secret, no matter how personal or confidential the news was. More than half admitted that alcohol could prompt them to dish the “Secret“.
It was also found that depending on who the gossip is about, the most likely initial recipients of the information are – boyfriends, husbands, best friends or mothers.
Share this with your friends, and let us know what they think (don’t worry, this is not a secret…).
