Beyond the basic biological differences between men and women I don't think that physiology has much to do with the differences between us. To quote a song by Ani DiFranco "women learn to be women and men learn to be men", I agree with this statement. There are many parts of my personality and behaviors that would be describes as typically male yet I am a woman. We learn how we are supposed to be from our parents, teachers, religious figures, friends etc. After we learn how we are supposed to be, we decide how we want to be. And that is much more philosophical and spiritual than what biology does for us. And that's all I have to say about that.
