Men more generous in company of attractive women

Post by Guest on Thu Feb 02, 2012 6:08 pm

Men become more generous when attractive women are around because they want to impress them, a study claims.


Researchers said men changed their behaviour in the presence of women because they instinctively tried to boost their chances of securing a mate by appearing kinder Photo: ALAMY

Just as a peacock reveals its spectacular plumage when it spots a female, men are more likely to show off by doing good deeds if they are in the company of attractive members of the opposite sex.

A study showed that men actively compete to outdo each other with generous acts when being watched by attractive women, and not when observed by other men. But the same does not apply to women, whose selflessness remains the same whether in the company of men or other women, psychologists from Oxford and Sheffield Hallam universities found.

Researchers recruited 65 men and 65 women with an average age of 21, and observed them as they played a co-operation game where individuals could donate money to a shared group fund. Donating money was a selfless act because players knew others would benefit, while they could not guarantee receiving the same return from others.

When being watched by a physically attractive member of the opposite, men were found to be significantly more generous while women's behaviour did not change.

After the participants were put in groups, men being watched by an attractive woman competed with each other by raising their donations to appear more selfless, but when observed by men their donations did not increase.

Researchers said men changed their behaviour in the presence of women because they instinctively tried to boost their chances of securing a mate by appearing kinder.

Dr Wendy Iredale, who led the study published in the British Journal of Psychology, said: "The research shows that good deeds among men increase when presented with an opportunity to copulate. Theoretically, this suggests that a good deed is the human equivalent of the peacock’s tail. Practically, this research shows how societies can encourage selfless acts.”

LOLOL!!! I did the very same thing (although it was about 10 yrs ago) I think it very much helped that although he was obviously plod, I called him 'inspector'.

i could see him fluffing out his plumage and he was so affable with me. I cant believe he fell for such blatant flattery!!

I've not seen that Nems, perhaps I shouldn't! Did you see Fast Freddie, the Widow and Me over Christmas? Hubby and I were absolutely sobbing Sad

Mind you, I have caught him crying at some of the X-Factor trials, he's quite emotional at times.

We have also been know to cry during episodes of Holby
