<< Continued from Male-Female Ratio in Autism

As caring is important for survival and craving to copulate is important for reproduction, the very goals of evolutionary process, to ensure their balance in the overall population, they are distributed amongst genders, resulting into males possessing the instinctive tendency to copulate and females possessing the instinctive tendency to care for others.

As caring behaviour emerges out of thinking from others' points of view, which needs CB-ROMs, after thousands of generations, it has resulted into females having more inherited strength (more under title Inherited Strength) of building CB-ROMs as compared to males, which results into making the process of building CB-ROMs more demanding in males.

More inherited strength of building CB-ROMs is also the reason why language development is faster in females (more under title Considering Others).

As autism is a CB-ROM specific disorder (colloquially called mind-blindness), and as building CB-ROMs is more demanding in males, they are more susceptible to autism, as seen in the autistic population.

The phenomena mentioned above matches observations of the Empathize-Systemize Theory (i.e. E-S theory) developed by Prof. Simon Baron-Cohen, which predicts that females have a higher tendency to empathize (CB-ROM specific skill) and males have a higher tendency to systemize (i.e. the tendency to analyze or construct a system, which is defined as anything that follows rules and is thus, lawful - LB specific skill).

An example of the above is the reason why typically in commercial airlines, machines are handled by males and people are handled by females.
