When it comes to the office -- some like it hot -- and most of them would be women
As the temperature outside starts to warm up there are fights over the thermostat in offices all across the Kawarthas and we have some new research you can use to make your case to warm things up or cool it down.
Researchers took 500 German university students and had them take tests in rooms between 16 and 32 degrees.
Women did better on math and verbal tests when it was warme and men did better when it was cool.
On the whole the study seems to suggest bumping up the temperature will help women more than it will hurt men.
Resarchers say other studies have confirmed what you already know men prefer a cool room but nobody had ever tested how it might affect performance.
