Intimidating women to men
No, that's not a slight on the female of the species.Instead, it's the findings of a new study, which suggests that men state their theoretical preference for intelligent women only to then change their minds in the cold light of the dating arena.Sciencists have concluded that it is a good thing to talk to oneself. When it comes to our life, we tend to stir away from the cookie cutter life: married with children; a house for four people and a mortgage; a steady job. For us, the cookie cutter life feels too 1950s for us.Instead, we go for things that we want, whenever we want it.If any of you are within the LMU Film School during the weekdays, I guarantee you will hear a loud cackling laugh every now and then. When people talk to an intimidating woman for the first time, they believe that they are always being judged by the woman.For some, they wonder if the woman is planning to break into their homes in the wee hours of the night and murder them in cold blood or are planning a way to make them fail at any expense.Many people may find it risky; we find it reasonable for our complicated life.
To have men tell me and other women that we are intimidating to them may have cost them the chance of a fun adventure with us.
While strangers, teachers, and even our own friends label us as women who are never happy or women who are too aggressive and scary, we do not care about that.
We actually do not take it personally and sometimes consider it as a compliment.
First, 105 men were asked to rank the merits of women who had out- or under-performed them in an intelligence test as a prospective romantic partner.
They found that the men were more likely to declare their attraction to women who had performed better than them.
