What viewpoint on men and women does Victor's description of Elizabeth reflect in the passage from Frankenstein?

I was more calm and philosophical than my companion; yet my temper was not so yielding. My application was of longer endurance; but it was not so severe whilst it endured. I delighted in investigating the facts relative to the actual world; she busied herself in following the aerial creations of the poets. The world was to me a secret, which I desired to discover; to her it was a vacancy, which she sought to people with imaginations of her own.

Women are less interested in concrete ideas than men are.
