LOL agreed Mike -- I didn't catch that bit about leaving off the "/emotional" in your earlier post. Your wife sounds like she gets it. I'm sure mine would, too.
You know it's funny -- I mentioned before that my parents both kind of had characteristics that are considered typical of the opposite sex (Dad was more gentle, compassionate, soft-spoken; Mom was more harsh, critical, competititve etc.). I grew up to be very much like my dad -- lover of nature and the outdoors, of building and fixing things, zero interest in competitive sports (except when played among friends just for fun), equally appreciative of science and rationality and of art and beauty, on and on like that. My wife, my perfect other half, is analytical, a born problem-solver, kind and compassionate but always focused on The Job At Hand, the here and now, a great maker of lists and ticker-offer of tasks done, etc. Just like HER dad.
The older I get, the more I'm inclined to believe that, as children, we gravitate toward the parent whose temperament and demeanor best complements our own, and we learn what they teach us, whether it much jives with our perceived gender or not. Maybe I'm nuts, but that's been my observation.
