Women are genetically more inclined to procrastination - a research


Procrastination, or postponement of important issues under any pretext, was the female biological feature connected with genetics, - it showed a new research.

the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Magazine published results of the project which authors were German scientists from Ruhr-University Bochum and Dresden University of Technology. The data obtained by them speak about that. that women are inclined to procrastination in connection with genetic feature - women have higher level of dopamine in a brain.

"The high level of production of dopamine is connected with the increased intellectual flexibility and also with the increased tendency to derivation of attention, that is with absent-mindedness", - the coauthor of a research doctor Erkhan Genk explained.

often consider Dopamine in connection with feeling of joy, psychological comfort. But, as scientific experts, this hormone and the neurotransmitter ответствен for motivation at the person note. In particular, dopamine informs of desire or unwillingness of result a brain that defines also further actions. Ability of the person to affect ways to some purpose, without distracting, to a large extent depends on production of dopamine.

Having studied a genotype of 278 men and women, researchers concluded that the increased level of synthesis of dopamine in a brain is closely connected with activity of a gene of TH. Also it was established that women who had highly active this gene differed also in the increased dopamine content in a brain, and also - the most strongly expressed tendency to procrastination. At men of such interrelation it was not found.

"Women with the dopamine level increased because of the genotype constantly postpone the affairs as all the time are distracted by various surrounding factors. We believe that fluctuations of level of female sex hormone of estrogen during a menstrual cycle can influence synthesis of dopamine. That is, the tendency to procrastinate in different phases of a cycle can amplify and decrease", - scientific experts shared opinion.
