Adolescent Girls Have Faster Psychological Improvement Than Boys

A new study conducted in Canada has revealed that girls are more competent than adolescent boys in improving their psychological well-being// in a fast and efficient way.

Nancy Galambos from the department of psychology at the University of Alberta studied how 18-25-year-olds make the transition from adolescence to adulthood.

According to the study, women with a significantly higher level of depressive symptoms and lower level of self-esteem than men of their age improved at a faster rate by the age 25, reported the science portal News-Medical.

Adolescence is the transitional stage of development between childhood and full adulthood, representing the period of time during which a person is biologically adult but emotionally not fully mature.

Although young adults are faced with a diversity of life choices, they seem to be coming to terms with themselves and their lives in their 20s, the study found.

The research, which appeared in the current issue of the journal Developmental Psychology, found that improved psychological well-being reduced the gender differences first appearing in adolescence.

‘The fact that girls improved faster than boys, or young women improved faster than young men, was a complete surprise,’ said Galambos. ‘I really did not know that this would happen.’
