Are Men Better At Navigating Directions Than Women?

Do you find this to be true?

According to a new study, men are better navigators than women. This study was done by researcher Alexander Boone. Boone conducted two experiments to reach this decision. The first test took 68 people and judged how well they were able to complete a maze after learning it for a bit. The second test provided a version of the same maze with landmarks.

Boone found that the men in the poll used the landmarks to find shortcuts through the maze and made it to the end faster.

 Women stuck with the route they already knew and still reached the destination, but took much longer. 

Boone concluded that men are "significantly" more efficient at reaching the destination than women are. 

I'm not sure whether I agree with this or not. Maybe you and your spouse can put it to the test and let us know what your findings are!
