I’ve been wondering ever since, if there is an element of truth in this. If we used football as an example we’ll notice that men who love the game can watch the livescore with one eye (then memorise them) and keep the other firmly placed on the game they’re watching. Yet, if you ask them to shop for more than three items, many will return home with tools, a sleeping bag and a pet rat – none of which you asked for.
Without any effort, men can commit to memory, football fixtures and bookmakers odds for all their teams with accuracy. They know the matches' start and finishing times to the precise second. Wedding anniversaries and birthdays, however, seem not to stick to the grey matter with that much intensity.
Do you know a guy who’s great with one-tracked thought pattern involving facts and stats? Is he just football crazy or slightly autistic?
