The constant air conditioning battle at home and offices

We all have our differences, and so it’s not surprising that the temperature in both homes and offices could cause conflicts most, especially among men and women.

While most women love to keep warm, men are more inclined to enjoy a cold environment.

Although it might seem like just a simple disagreement, these temperature differences are one of the causes of less productivity at work.

When the temperature is not conducive, there is no way you can efficiently carry out your work.

Twitter battle

A real-life air conditioning battle took place when Taylor Lorenz, a staff writer of The Atlantic,took out her frustration on Twitter about how air conditioning is not only bad and unhealthy but also ‘sexist.’

She added that it makes her sick.

Her tweet started an argument and caused some men asked her to wear a sweater.

Taylor Lorenz got irritated by the solution given by some internet users and disclosed that she found it weird that men have a mental breakdown because she’s asking that offices should be made comfortable for women so they could be productive.

However, @Louisathelast was of the opinion that being cold does not make one sick.

But Dr. Talia Jane explained that it could.

A lot of Twitter users aired their opinion. Most of the men argued that they need air conditioning because they had to wear more clothing to look professional and if the women found the office too cold they could opt for sweaters.

The women, on the other hand, believed that a cold environment makes them unproductive. And that the men could use fans if they were feeling hot.

Science proves that temperatures affect productivity

It has long been debated that temperature affects productivity and that it differs based on gender. Women perform better in warm temperatures while men in cold temperatures.

Well, it seems this is true!

According to a research carried out to study performance in math, verbal and cognitive reflection, women answered more questions on the math and verbal tests when the room was warmer, while men performed better in a colder environment.

What then is the perfect temperature?

It is important that employers should consider the interest of all their employees, whether males or females so they could efficiently carry out their duties.
