Scientists again proved what you already intuitively guessed

MAXIM - Scientists from the University of Buffalo (USA) have conducted two studies to find out whether narrative abilities (that is, speaking more simply, the ability to speak fluently) affect the attractiveness of the opposite sex.

In the first experiment, participants showed a certain number of photographs of people of the opposite sex. Simultaneously with the demonstration of the pictures, they were informed whether the person was a good storyteller, where he came from, how old he was and whether he liked spaghetti. All the photos were conditionally divided into three parts: "good storyteller" (in the description of this type phrases like "rich vocabulary", "his stories at parties are always popular", "he always knows how to laugh"), "ordinary narrator" (about oratorical abilities were not mentioned separately) and "a bad storyteller" ("in companies it is often kept silent", "it is sometimes difficult for him to find words to express his thoughts").

After that, the participants of the experiment needed to evaluate the photos in terms of attractiveness for dating and sex, long-term relationships and as a friend. As a result, it turned out that the ability to tell stories well makes a man more attractive in female eyes when it comes to long-term relationships.

But men absolutely do not care. On their perception of the attractiveness of women, the quality of the talented storyteller was not reflected in any way.

In the second experiment, questions about attractiveness were added to the questions: "Which of them do you think has the makings of a leader?", "Who is worthy of admiration?", "Who can lead?" As in the first case, women have higher good scribes received scores.

This is explained by evolution. Men spread their genes widely (at least try), and women - sighting. Also, men and women spend different amounts of effort on offspring: the first can confine themselves to only sexual contact, while women's investments include a multi-month pregnancy and rearing offspring. Thus, men can afford to choose a partner quite frivolously, and women subconsciously look for someone who could help with raising their offspring.

Scientists suggest that in primitive communities, one who could explain supernatural phenomena automatically received power and privileges. Therefore, women on a subconscious level believe that such a partner is more promising.

It seems that it will be necessary to postpone the crowning reception of seduction - a significant sniff. (Maxim Russia)
