I just read something interesting in a little flyer I got recently from Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.
The headline read, A Secret about Women.
I figured that, as a woman, I probably was already in on the "secret" (whatever it might be), but curiosity is a strong suit of mine, so I read on ... and, ooh, girlfriends ... this is interesting!
Did you know that the average woman
cannot keep a secret for much longer than 47 hours?
According to a study done in England, we don't even make it all the way through 2 days without blowing the cover of whomever has so trustingly chosen to confide in us. Apparently, we women, spill the goods to at least one other person in 47 hours and 15 minutes (if you wanna be specific.)
The study of 3000 women (ages 18 - 65) found that 40% of women are unable to keep a secret regardless of how personal or confidential the subject matter is.
Wanna know what topped the list of "spilled secrets?"
- intimate issues
- true cost of purchases
So, choose your confidants wisely
... particularly if you're planning to dish on any one (or all) of the above topics.
