London, Sept 02: Although females are considered to be the gentler sex, a majority of women have admitted that they are clumsier than men, a new study has revealed.
The research conducted by Brighton and Sussex Medical School found that four in ten females described themselves as butterfingers compared with just one in four men, Metro.co.uk reported.
It was found that spilling food or drink was the most common mishap, followed by bumping into someone.
The study suggested that young people aged 18 to 24 are four times as likely to feel nervous around the opposite sex leading to clumsiness compared with people over 55. (ANI)
