When watching a horror movie, women are always guessing the next scene that is more negative as a form of anticipation, while men just enjoy the spectacle in front of him.
Researchers know this because when given a warning about the extreme violence or horror the woman’s brain will immediately respond by doing an act, while the male brain to stay calm until the incident occurred or came to light.
The results of these studies have shown that the anticipation of something bad has caused quite a reaction in the female brain, but not for men, as quoted by Medindia.
Additionally, when women are faced with something negative it would be faster to respond emotionally as a result of activity in the brain that affect memory.
If the acts done during the anticipation of watching a horror movie, it will be more remembered the scene.
