Men and women may belong to the species, but the psyche of both the genders are very different. You can consult psychological books if you want a clearer insight into the other gender’s mind. Of course, it is not possible to know someone else’s thought process completely, whether through books or talking to one. But these are somewhat helpful in giving a rough idea of the differences and similarities to expect.
Some people might think it is not their business to understand others, but it is not so. Just by existing on the same planet, it is our responsibility to understand each other and work together.
Female psychology is significantly different from the male’s due to various factors. First of all, the difference in our physical bodies and the ability of women to bear children affects women. Throughout history, society has treated men and women differently enough to cause a profound impact on the latter’s psychology. Women are advised against and restricted from certain personal freedoms, and are subjected to stronger, relentless scrutiny. They are given different responsibilities and have different expectations attached to them. Girls also mature at an earlier age than boys, which has a lasting effect.
A lot of women and some men have written extensive psychological books on or for women, to help the community understand them better, learn their motivations and aspiration. You can find some of the popular female psychological books written here-
