Study: Women more likely to apologize than men

Apparently, it's not that women are wrong more often than men - they just think they are.

That's the conclusion from psychologists at the University of Waterloo in Canada.

They were looking into why women apologize more than men. They found that women are generally more ready to offer-up apologies.

Women also have a lower threshold for what constitutes "offensive behavior" that they feel warrants an apology.
