Men are prone to say that women are crazy. Here is an alternate viewpoint.

Who is crazy, who is not?
This is rather a weird thought!
Women are crazy, men think,
Their own mind does truly stink.

For the latest computer,
Racing car or a scooter,
Which may soon be obsolete,
Men can well their purse deplete.

But, these same men often grudge,
When the women try to judge,
In what apparel if dressed,
Their men will be more impressed.

Men don't realize the fact,
That fashion just is a tact.
Women don't dress for their flock.
They fashion up for menfolk.

Men go only for IQ,
Women go for EQ too;
Science says wives' intuition
Is not mere superstition.

Yet men tend to denigrate,
This, rather feminine, trait.
They can't read them, even then,
Men say, crazy are women.

• In addition to the well known concept of IQ (Intelligence Quotient), Emotional Quotient is also well recognized now. EQ is often higher in women. Their good managerial capabilities have been attributed to higher EQ.

* There is scientific proof now that intuition is not a myth.

• It appears possible that women are more intuitive than men. There might be a psycho-anthropological basis for it.
