Counterintuitive Study Of The Day
According to a new study, men prefer smart women to pretty women:
NEXT time a man throws you an admiring glance, he’s probably just heard the intelligent things you’ve been saying.
Many women will find it hard to believe, but new research suggests men increasingly value intellect and character in a partner over a shapely figure.
Apparently, traditional wifely skills such as being a good cook are also becoming less important to modern men, British scientists claim.
They say in Western societies where men and women are equal, interest in a woman’s appearance is in decline.
However, women now tend to be more interested in a man’s looks than before, and less preoccupied by their wealth as they are able to depend on themselves financially.
Dr Marcel Zentner, a psychologist at York University, said: ‘We found in societies like Britain, or especially in Scandinavia, men place increasing value on other qualities, like intelligence, rather than curvy figures or skill at cooking’.
Yea, sure. And, before long, strip clubs will be replaced by salons where men flock to watch women give lectures on nuclear physics, philosophy, and French literature.
