Women are more like herd thinkers. They are more "agreeable", which means they are more likely to attempt to have a secure place in the tribe rather than lead it. If an opinion is popular, it had extra value for them. Without trying, they value approval of the group, as this means that they and their offspring with be secure in the tribe, so opinions that are ecoed many times have more value. They can think individually, but the herd thinking comes more automatically. They also, similarly, have best friends and set groups and blend into them- they like security.
This shows that they are to be guided, and not leading. Furthermore, women are less emotionally flat than men, so decision making is compromised.
However- women are great communicators and like interaction, hence why they often select care oriented careers like nursing and psychology. Although they are a little more childlike, motherhood elevates a woman as nature shows, time and time again, that mothers self sacrifice. They are fiercely loyal to their children in many cases.
Women can be irresponsible and poor decision makers, but there's potential more often than not. Women need leaders and love. If not reprimanded by withdrawal of attention (attention reassures a woman, and tells her she has value in the group), she may make poor decisions, not be as attracted, and behave poorly. If not loved, she grows insecure, she act out, cry for attention or become sadenned.
If they anger you
Remember that they are testing you when they are being petty- when they cross the line, ask for favours, act rudely, they are testing to see how you respond- are you a leader, who can respond and not be affected/bothered? Or are you weak, not affirming your status or being affected.
Women need to realize that they have primal influences, such as tribe thinking, shit testing, etc. It's all biological. If they can understand it, they can better correct it, and let the spirit and will have more influence than the flesh.
Don't ask her what she is like- Ask her best friend. Women are more open about their nature around other women, it is less vulnerable.
Don't hate women, understand them.
