"Why women really do love self-obsessed psychopaths

By Steve Connor, Science Editor, Thursday, 19 June 2008

Bad boys, it seems, really do get all the girls. Women might claim they want caring, thoughtful types but scientists have discovered what they really want self-obsessed, lying psychopaths.

A study has found that men with the "dark triad" of traits narcissism, thrill- seeking and deceitfulness are likely to have a larger number of sexual affairs.

Peter Jonason, of New Mexico University in Las Cruces, believes that these traits may have an innate, genetic component that explains why some men seem unable to stop themselves behaving badly.

The dark triad of traits are the self-obsession of narcissism, the impulsive, thrill-seeking and callous behaviour of psychopaths and the deceitful and exploitative nature of Machiavellianism. "We have some evidence these traits may represent a successful evolutionary strategy," Dr Jonason told New Scientist magazine.

Many famous men from James Dean to Pete Doherty could be said to show elements of the dark triad of traits, but perhaps the best fictional example is James Bond. "He's clearly disagreeable, very extrovert and likes trying new things including killing people and new women," Dr Jonason said.

The study subjected 200 college students to personality tests designed to rank them in terms of the dark triad. They were also asked about their sexual relationships, including their attitude towards brief affairs.

Dr Jonason said those with the highest rating in terms of the dark triad tended to have more partners and a greater desire for short-term affairs.

The dark triad approach is one way of maximising a man's reproductive potential by having sex with many females, while not bothering to stick around to help with the children. "The strategy seems to have worked. We still have these traits," Dr Jonason said.

David Schmitt, of Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, surveyed 35,000 people in 57 countries and found a similar link. "It is universal across cultures," he said."
Take your dogma and shove it!

Life is not about what happens to you, it's about how you deal with it.

Re: Why women really do love self-obsessed psychopaths
It would probably be more accurate to say "Why college women really do love self-obsessed psychopaths". Although it definitely applies somewhat, to all women. Women tend to want that 'sweet and caring' guy when they want to settle down. So yea, it sucks for 'nice' guys at younger ages, but they'll get some used up trash bag after college...kidding! But yea, fuck you ladies..for being stupid enough to fall for assholes.

Similarly, men claim to want a girl that is no nonsense/down to earth, but then seem to fall over drama queens that are pains in the ass.

Actually women want both. They want the jerks to reproduce, and the nice(read stupid) guys to take care of their spawn. After all, women are just walking wombs.

Re: Why women really do love self-obsessed psychopaths
The sweet wholesome girls aren't always the first ones picked either, you know. The nice guys complain because they go to the bars and all the girls are with the bad boys. Yet those nice guys aren't exactly choosing the church girls or the egg heads, either, because maybe those boys really aren't so nice after all? They just want to get laid without conditions but the bad boys have beaten them to all the skanks? Just a thought.

No see Bad boys are not necessarily self obsessed psychopaths this person obviously has no idea what a psychopath is.
A psychopath would be more like a real estate agent or an anally retentive Accountant.

Re: Why women really do love self-obsessed psychopaths
I should think someone claiming to be "scientific" would be smarter than that.

Women DO want good men. The problem is that bad men are better at pretending to be good men... while also managing not to be clingy and needy.

The problem with "nice guys" is that they are so often clingy, insecure, and needy.

What women really want is a good guy who doesn't hang off of her like a toddler on his mommy. pick

Lying assholes are better at pretending to be good men, while also managing not to try to force her to be his end-all, be-all.

These "nice" guys want us to MAKE HIM HAPPY, whereas these assholes take responsibility for their own happiness (part of which, for THEM, includes LYING).

I found a man who is a GOOD, DECENT MAN, who didn't expect me to MAKE HIM happy. He loves me without the whole obsessive-clingy thing that a lot of "nice guys" do.

Confidence is sexy. Sadly, these bastards combine arrogance with lies and create the picture of a man a woman would want to be with... but it's all a lie.

This is why women should NOT have sex with guys. These kind of bastards give up easy! Hang on and don't give up the goods right away, and you'll learn whether he's a real guy or one of these pieces of shit.

Women do not prefer this type of man.
This type of man hides behind the "knight in shining armor" routine until her guard is down then WHAM! PSYCHO shit happens. Run. Run very far and throw things behind you as you run.
