Beautiful Women Make Men Irrational

Beautiful Women Make Men Irrational

POSTED: 10:04 a.m. EST December 16, 2003
A beautiful woman can make a guy irrational -- and now there's science to prove it.

Researchers at McMaster University showed male students pictures of women, some of whom were said to be attractive and some not-so-attractive, as determined by the Hot or Not? Web site.

After seeing a very attractive woman, the men were more likely to make dumb choices.

The Canadian researchers asked the male students to roll dice. If they rolled double digits, they were given a choice of taking $15 to $35 the next day or up to $75 after waiting a while.

The men who saw the attractive women were more likely to take the lesser amount.

NewScientist.com said biologists call choosing immediate rewards to greater ones in the future as "discounting the future."

The researchers said they tried the same test with female students. But there was no lessening of intelligence among the women after looking at hunks. Men also didn't show a change in reaction after seeing pictures of expensive cars.

The researchers said men stop thinking about long-term consequences once they get slightly aroused and see a sexual opportunity.


Well, I thought this was obvious.

Hopefully its not been already posted.

We need science to back up the obvious to explain ourselves, you see. That way we can blame our actions on something.

Ha. It's Been Posted Before.

I'm terrible about that. It's one of my least-favorite qualities about myself. A beautiful woman can turn me into a simpering babbling fool or a deaf-mute in seconds flat. It sucks.

I have no game.

Oh give the poor men a break... After all, it is McMaster University, the same university that for one year decided it was a good idea to put 'The Beer Store' as one of the places students could buy from with their meal plan cards...

It is a bit of a stretch to use hot or not and 'after a while' as measurements and call it science. Although I guess the results varied by 'hotness' which shows something.
