Honey, don't cry

Published: Monday 31 March 1997

Women in Turkey, Chile and the US are among the world's most frequent criers, and men from Spain, Peru and Bulgaria cry the least, according to a study done by psychologists from the Tilburg University in the Netherlands. Women everywhere cry more than men - on an average 2.76 times per week compared with 1.06 times for men. The data was collected by the researchers who used a five-part questionnaire that asked respondents how often they had cried during the past four weeks and what made them cry. Guess the most preferred place and time for crying - at home and in the evening.
