Where's The Car?

The Netherlands - A new study shows men and women have different strategies to remember where they parked.

Researchers tested more than a hundred shoppers.  Most women used landmarks to describe where they parked.

Men were more precise, and able to estimate the distance to their parked car.

Researchers say men and women also used some of the same strategies, like parking close to a mall entrance or parking in a favorite spot.

You can find more on the study in the journal Applied Cognitive Psychology.
