The realization of activities in daily life can generate cognitive processes such as paying attention and having meditation to what is done, and with the use of these abilities, it is sought to obtain better results or to carry out the desired activity of the best possible way. Although people have the same capacities, there are activities where there may be differences between men and women or vice versa, for this reason, it is important to consider through gender, what are the attention level and the level of meditation presented during the performance of a specific activity. With this information, clustering of the elements is applied to visualize different levels and how it behaves in each gender, as well as in general.
