Abstract

It has been proved that expressing gratitude can help maintain the overall well-being of humans. However, there is an obvious gender difference in expressing gratitude. Generally speaking, women are overall better gratitude expressers than men. Therefore, this paper mainly studies the reasons behind the gender differences in expressing gratitude. Through doing interviews and literature reviews, results show that the reason behind this phenomenon is the traditional standards for masculinity and femininity and different hormonal compositions. These results can help people find ways to improve themselves as gratitude expressers in order to feel happier.
