Summary

Gender differences in spoken and unspoken emotional expression exist and may be related to gender differences in other realms, particularly in self-esteem. This literature review investigated gender differences in communication, particularly as related to emotional expressiveness, detection of emotional responses, and self-disclosures, in relation to sex-role learnings and self-esteem. Results of the literature review suggest that gender differences in responding to, and sending out, non-verbal indications of emotions exist. Self-esteem for females may depend highly upon success in relationships, which may lead them to be more apt to communicate negative aspects of the relationship as well as negative feelings, in hopes of fixing what is seen as wrong. Males may well appear more defensive, perhaps even unable to express and detect deeply felt emotions. Such gender differences reflect traditional values and assumptions about the nature of the sexes. Perhaps women do serve as the emotional mirrors for their mates' feelings, and yet their mates must be sensitive to this, if not to their own feelings, in order to form a happy relationship in which the wife feels somehow rewarded for her efforts at emotional expressiveness.
