THE NETHERLANDS — A new study says men and women have different strategies to remember where they’ve parked in crowded parking lots.

According to the journal Applied Cognitive Psychology, researchers tested more than a hundred shoppers.  Most women used landmarks to describe where they parked — but men were more precise, and more able to  estimate the distance to their parked car.

The 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.
