"Females neither seek nor desire power to lord over others in the traditional masculine style. The greatest enjoyment for a female in terms of power is using her female wiles; physical presentation and cunning, to take advantage of others and to do with them what she wants."

I had never considered this reality. I find it to be fascinating. That statement about female psychology is just... brilliant... and true I think. I have found that women far prefer to have more of a "puppetmaster"/behind the scenes/manipulator kind of individual than to go out and acquire/use power themselves.

This explains why the majority of women (As demonstrated by countless census) would NOT pursue a career in politics and would NOT vote for a female representative over a male representative. It's so obvious, I can't believe I had never considered this.

Anyway;
Your thoughts?

I've got some wiles alright.


But it's actually just a bottle of rufilin labeled "wiles"

I actually think most people would prefer to play the puppeteer role.

No limelight.
No responsibility.
And you get what you want.

I don't think I've ever met a (heterosexual) man who would not rather have power, control and dominance as opposed to less power... and yes, obfuscation and subterfuge offer less power. It's at less risk, but it's still less power.
