Just a brief response to something I read on a google+ page.
+Tim Patten said: “Generally, females live for POWER, men for EGO.”
I would like to add that there’s a subtle observation to make to this. People seek what they feel they do not have. Women, as a generalization, may seek power, but it is not ego that men seek to fulfill, but a sense of recognition, which serves the purpose of having him be wanted–less disposable, which in turn is precisely what most women seek: a sense of security and control over one’s life. Each seeks what the other has, or seems to have. Women seek agency, and men seek belonging.
