Male Answer Syndrome

Brutus responds to Jacqueline’s question.


Brutus: Oh, it’s high.

Jacqueline: But exactly how high? In meters.

Brutus: If I told you, you wouldn’t believe it.

Jacqueline: You don’t actually know, do you?

Brutus: OK. To the viewing platform it’s 1200 meters, and to the very top it’s 1800.

Jacqueline: I’d heard 1500 to the very top.

Brutus: Well give or take 300. Yeah, 1500.



Male Answer Syndrome (MAS). Some males, when asked a question, feel they have to answer. “I don’t know” is not an option. And do some women like to ask questions that will lead to an embarrassing display of MAS? You betcha.
