Mysteries of the Japanese woman


goo Ranking reported on a survey that looked at actions by females that leave males asking “Why?”. I have reported on the same question four years ago, if you wish to cross-reference.


Between the 17th and 18th of January 2012 1,048 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 61.6% of the sample were female, 12.3% in their teens, 15.6% in their twenties, 27.9% in their thirties, 25.8% in their forties, 9.5% in their fifties, and 8.9% in their sixties. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample. This question was for the males only.

I think everything on this list confuses me…
