Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:

means power

it is not to be confused with these other radicals that resemble it very much

刀  which means knife

几 which means table

方 which means square

power is used with this important radical which is easy to remember:

田  means rice paddy or field

when combined, they form the character for man as in male person:

男  - someone who uses his force in the field or rice paddy = male

(you may want to use a larger view of the screen to see these characters larger)
