Pink territory: Research has found that in most cases women simply lack the confidence to park and that supportive words can go a long way
Psychologist Dr Zachary Estes has made tests which showed that a lack of confidence is a factor in women’s tendency to struggle in tasks requiring spatial awareness and that they improved in these activities when their self-belief was given a boost.
Dr Estes said: ‘Our research suggests that by making a woman feel better about herself, she’ll become better at spatial tasks – which in the real world means tasks such as parking the car or reading a map.
‘So a little bit of confidence-boosting may go a long way in a tight parking spot.’
Pink walls and extra space may be the right way to go.
