The most well-known detectives in fiction have mostly been males, notwithstanding Sherlock Holmes, who’s probably the most famous amongst them. Such discrepancy, however, shouldn’t be considered as proof that female private detectives aren’t good at their jobs. They certainly are, and in some cases, they’re the better choice, too.
Intuition is defined in one website as an “instinctive knowing”, one that doesn’t utilize rational thinking. And more often than not, intuition is something associated with women rather than men. Intuition is a key factor during investigations; when you need to make split-second decisions, common sense and logic may not be enough. To make the best decisions for the case, you’ll need intuition as well and women certainly have that in abundance.
Deceptive Absence of Threat
Regardless of the various achievements of the female gender, women are still perceived as the weaker sex by many. While this may be a disadvantage, not to mention an annoyance and an insult, in certain situations, this simply becomes an asset for female private investigators.
With the help of clothes, disguise, and excellent acting, female private investigators can make it impossible for other people, especially the subject on hand, to perceive them as a threat. As such, people act and talk more freely around them, which consequently make it easier for them to uncover the truth.
Compassion and Empathy
Infidelity is the most common reason why marriages break up and the possibility of it is also the most common reason why people seek the help of private investigators. All-female private investigator firms, in particular, are adept at launching honey traps for spouses being suspected of infidelity.
These firms, however, are more prone to showing care and consideration for their clients. They do not push through with a case unless they’re sure the client understands the possible ramifications of discovering the truth. Women are also more capable of understanding what a wife is going through during these painful times and consequently understands the absolute need for discretion and compassion.
They’re Simply Effective
Lastly, women are always the best people to hire if you’re interested in launching a honey trap for a potential or current boyfriend, fiancé, or husband. Sure, men are more likely to confide the truth to male buddies, but they’re also more likely to be attracted to and kiss females. And when they fall for the trap, one snapshot is all it takes to provide evidence for their act of betrayal. After all, photos speak a thousand words, don’t they?
