Beautiful women nullify the rationality of men

A study published in Frontiers in Neuroscience has shown that men lose the ability to think rationally when talking to beautiful women, and they are willing to accept unprofitable deals if asked by an attractive girl. Attractive women can not only get men to stop thinking rationally and accept offers that do not bring them any benefit, but can easily manipulate men, as confirmed by the study.

It seems, therefore, that the female beautyhas an effect on men's perception of justice and injustice. The psychologist Anthony Little, in an interview conducted by The Huffington Post, he affirms that “people behave very well with attractive people. That was known. Now this study reveals that people are also more tolerant of attractive people when they behave unfairly, suggesting that attractive people may be more selfish in their life because their beauty will make them excuse me ”.

Study data and its conclusions

Twenty-one students from Zhejiang University in China participated in the study. 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 if they were going to distribute a small amount of money with each girl (in some cases fairly and in others, the distribution was unfair). Their brain waves and response times were measured at all times.

Men were more likely to accept offers from attractive womenBut it took them a little longer to decide on the unfair offers. The data from the waves showed an increase in brain activity (specifically in the area of ​​the reinforcement) when males interacted with attractive females.

The data also showed that men were kinder to attractive womeneven knowing they weren't going to date them. "This suggests that motivations for being nice to attractive people have nothing to do with conscious decisions to maximize our profit, "he says. Little.

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

Attractive women are more selfish

According another investigation published in Evolution and Human Behavior, and carried out by scientists from the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), attractive women are less cooperative and moreselfish.

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."
