It is argued by some people today that men are less likely to engage is consensus based decision making. Consensus based decision making is often touted as superior but in reality it has some serious limitations. The group may assess a narrower range of options than they would if consensus was considered less important. In addition, individuals that don't need to seek consensus can engage in endeavours that no one else believes in. This involves forging out on their own even when their peers suggest the course of action is pointless or even dangerous. Men are thus more likely to experiment and create and develop even if the rest of the community is against them doing it.
