Note that which approach is portrayed as better varies widely; see RomanticismVersusEnlightenment. In many works that come down on the side of Enlightenment, you'll see women portrayed as [[HystericalWoman hysterically]] [[StrawmanEmotional irrational]] and [[WeakWilled easily manipulated]], while their male counterparts' hard-nosed, [[StreetSmart pragmatic]] rationalism proves to be [[ScienceHero the key to saving the day]]. More Romanticist works, on the other hand, often portray men as [[TheStoic cold]], [[InsufferableGenius arrogant]], [[LackOfEmpathy heartless]], and [[MeasuringTheMarigolds unable to appreciate beauty or emotional realities]], while the women are [[CloserToEarth more balanced]], [[TheHeart compassionate]], and [[NatureHero in tune with nature]]. In some works, it will be suggested that [[TheKirk both approaches are necessary]] and [[EmotionsVersusStoicism have to balance each other]]. (Note that this doesn't entirely get rid of the UnfortunateImplications if it's still implied that your gender determines which approach you have to take.) Nowadays, due to widespread awareness of this trope and its UnfortunateImplications, it's increasingly common to see [[InvertedTrope inversions]], with [[MasculineGirlFeminineBoy a sensitive, emotional man and a logical, stoic woman]]. Again, which one is portrayed as right will still vary, although works like this are perhaps slightly more likely to go with the "both sides are necessary for balance" approach.

* ''Series/TeenWolf'' subverts this trope with the two resident [[{{SmartGuy}} Smart Guys]] Lydia and Stiles. Female Lydia is a mathematical and scientific genius who reads physics books for fun and can whip up a molotov cocktail from memory, while the male Stiles is the main researcher (often into supernatural history) and has excellent investigative skills that rely on intuitive leaps.

* ''TheSecretSaturdays'' lives this trope. Doc Saturday is a scientist through and through, while his wife Drew is more a believer in the paranormal. Faced with any problem Doc will always seek a logical solution while Drew will explore more mystical alternatives. They're still HappilyMarried though so that's cool.

* [[ZigzaggingTrope Zigzag in]] ''XenozoicTales'', featuring the very science-minded Hannah Dundee and the Earth father Jack Tenrec. Both of them have leanings for the opposite side. Jack, despite his undying devotion to the natural order, loves working on cars and other machines. Hannah, more subtly, believes in the mystic underpinnings of the world, but she considers they will be scientifically explicable, once they are better understood. There's also the indication that she's been [[spoiler:chosen by the Grith]].

* {{Ponyo}}'s mother is a goddess of mercy, and her father a scientist. (Well, sort of a wizard, but a very mad-science-flavored wizard.) However, there's a bit of a subversion in that her father is [[OverprotectiveDad motivated more by love for his family than anything else]] and cares deeply about nature, to the point of [[YouAreWhatYouHate hating humans]] for unbalancing the ocean's ecosystem.
