Men prefer silly and unthinking women, says study
In recent decades, different studies have been carried out to find out what is most attractive to a man, and what a man looks for in a woman. And just as some men may ask themselves, how can it be that women are attracted to tough guys? They, surely, ask themselves, how can there be men who ignore intelligence and only notice the physical ?
A study conducted by the University of Texas seems to indicate that men are attracted to women who are not very reflective and mentally vulnerable . That is, they do not like the philosophers or the great thinkers, but rather the opposite.

Silly women are highly attractive to men
The study was carried out by researchers from California Lutheran University and the University of Texas, and seems to indicate that Men are intimidated by intelligent women and that they feel a special predilection for women who are not very reflective and rather stupid or stupid. Could this indicate that less reflective women are easier to coax and take to bed? Or rather it is a predilection to continue being the "roosters" of the corral? The hypotheses are in the air.
To arrive at these results, the researchers asked a large group of students what were the most attractive actions, bodily postures, attitudes or personality traits (for example, biting their lips, touching their hair, etc.), and Then they extracted 88 factors that they used as part of their study, which consisted of showing a series of photographs with these traits to 76 men. Then they were asked what behaviors associated with them and what desires awakened in them. Men associated female attractiveness with signs of vulnerability and low intelligence .

This study goes against the sapiosexual current
Recently, in an article of Psychology and Mind , we talk about "sapiosexuality". The sapiosexuals they are people who are attracted to the intelligence of individuals of the opposite sex . According to the data of this study, in the case of men, sapiosexuality would not be precisely a characteristic to take into account when linking.
In fact, according to the sexologist Miren Larrazabal, president of the Spanish Federation of Sexology Societies (FESS), "to women, as far as attraction is concerned, apart from the physical, we value intelligence very much". In addition, Larrazabal concludes, "this does not mean that men do not attract the intelligence of a woman, but usually look at other things." Well, it seems that Dr. Larrazabal was pointing in the right direction: men do not value the intelligence of their potential partners too much .

3 out of 4 women are lesbians, according to another study

If the new research corroborates these results, nobody would be surprised by the results of another investigation that affirms that 3 out of 4 women are lesbians.You can learn more about this controversial study that was published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology by clicking here.
From what age are women no longer attractive to men?
And it is certain that some women think that there is no one who understands men. This idea becomes stronger when one takes a look at another controversial investigation that concludes that women over 28 are no longer attractive to men . These results are aligned with the idea that the older a man becomes, the more he likes young women.
The Finnish researchers from Åbo Akademi University carried out this research with more than 12,000 participants between 25 and 40 years of age. So the sample is quite large.You may be interested in learning more about this research: "Women over 28 do not attract men, according to research"
Men also like smiling women
But, What other characteristics do women present that are attractive to men?
This question was raised by a group of researchers from the British Columbia University (United States) in a study led by Jessica Tracy, professor and director of the same university. The results were published in American Psychological Association Journal, Y They showed that, for men, the women who smile the most are very attractive .
In contrast, in the case of women, the results were the opposite. "The men who are considered more attractive to them are those who show a more serious trait and smile less." Thus, there is a notable difference between men and women in this matter: they prefer them smiling, and they long for the serious and reflective.
