There are many studies reporting differences between the female brain and the male brain, but it has also been reported that human brains do not belong to one of the two distinct categories: female versus male. Functional gender differences of the brain may be attributable to environmental factors rather than to one's gender. In this paper, the processes of adapting to one's environment have been demonstrated through Piaget's developmental theory explained by chaos theory. A conclusive type of thought such as the male brain is equivalent to a fixed state and female brain is equivalent to a chaotic state. Fixed state and chaotic state change according to changes in variables of chaos theory. Thoughts change with environment because the changes in variables are equivalent to changes in environment. In human life, the ability of the brain to adapt to environments may be more useful than gender differences. In chaos theory, gender differences of the brain are part of adaptations to environment. If Nightingale's brain was the chaotic type, she would have permitted the miserable state of the Crimean War to continue. Therefore, Nightingale's brain was the fixed type. However, the conclusion that Nightingale's brain was the male type should not be permitted. This is an example of how using "gender" to describe the types of thoughts in the brain is incorrect. The female and the male brain should be referred to as chaotic type thoughts and fixed type thoughts, respectively, because brain type is not decided solely by gender differences.
