Attractive Women Override Men’s Ability To Think Rationally

A curious study relates female attractiveness to the ability to blank men.

A study published in Frontiers in Neuroscience has shown that men lose the ability to think rationally when talking to beautiful women, and are willing to accept unfavorable deals if asked by an attractive girl. Not only can attractive women get men to stop thinking rationally and accept offers that don’t bring them any benefit, but they can easily manipulate men, the study confirms.

It seems, therefore, that  female beauty has an effect on men’s perception of justice and injustice. Psychologist Anthony Little, in an interview by The Huffington Post , states that “people behave very well with attractive people. That was known. Now, this study reveals that people are also more tolerant towards attractive people when they behave unfairly, suggesting that attractive people may be more selfish in their life because their beauty will make them forgive. ”

Study data and its conclusions

The study involved 21 students from Zhejiang University in China. The subjects viewed 300 photographs showing the faces of Chinese women. Half of them were attractive and the other half were not very physically attractive (it was another group of subjects who determined which women were attractive or not).

The participants were then asked to decide whether to distribute a small amount of money to each girl (in some cases fairly and in others, the distribution was unfair). Her brain waves and response times were measured at all times.

Men were more likely to accept offers from attractive women, but it took a little longer to settle on offers that weren’t fair. The waveform data showed an increase in brain activity (specifically in the area of  reinforcement ) when males interacted with attractive females.

The data also showed that men were kinder to attractive women, even knowing they weren’t going to date them. “This suggests that motivations for being nice to attractive people are not related to conscious decisions to maximize our benefit, ”Little says.

Furthermore, “these results are consistent with previous findings in this field: people act more agreeable to attractive people. Attractive women can succeed in cruel acts because of their beauty, ”concludes researcher Albert Little.

Attractive women are more selfish

According to other research published in Evolution and Human Behavior , and carried out by scientists from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), attractive women are less cooperative and more selfish .  

Women (but possibly men too) who consider themselves beautiful show less altruistic behavior. According to Enrique Turiégano, director of the study, “this may be because they are treated better, and therefore they need less from others to satisfy their needs.”
