Skip to comments.Yes, Chicks Dig Jerks
Posted on 03/02/2012 7:23:06 PM PST by MetaThought
The most frequently cited (and probably the most controversial) research on the Chicks Dig Jerks thesis is the Dark Triad work of Professor Peter Jonason of the University of South Alabama. The Dark Triad is a combination of psychological traits subclinical psychopathology, subclinical narcissism, and what Professor Jonason calls Machiavellianism that are, he believes, in fact a unitary phenomenon associated with a higher level of sexual success, defined in the literature as a larger number of total lifetime sexual partners. The correlation of the Dark Triad with larger numbers of sexual partners holds true for both men and women, but the effect is much more pronounced in men. This is unsurprising, inasmuch as mens relative preference for larger numbers of short-term sexual relationships and womens relative preference for long-term relationships is, as Professor Jonason notes, one of the most consistent and strongest sex differences in the ﬁeld.
So: Machiavellianism, subclinical psychopathology, subclinical narcissism: not exactly the stuff of a Jane Austen romance, but apparently the stuff of sexual success. Professor Jonason concludes: Together with low amounts of empathy and agreeableness (I warned you this was depressing stuff) such traits may facilitate especially for men the pursuit of an exploitative short-term mating strategy.
But you knew that already, if you are a homo even half sapiens and went to high school.

It is sad they define sexual success as the most partners.
God defines it differently.
Or Ladies Love Oulaws
Stupidly, but so.
The world according to the materialist world view. Treat them like mud, they’ll stick like dirt.
Being a D!ckhead works, for the short term. Hence, many partners. In my experience, women want a confident guy they can’t break. Duh. An ahole is a wuss acting confident.
My own knowledge of too many women further underscores this finding. Unfortunately, my heart hurt was hurt too many times as I witnessed prior “nice” girls hook up with such lowlifes.
And back in my youth, I always loved getting the last laugh when some "bad boy" tries to make himself look tough at my expense.
Imagine you were a woman in primeval times. There is no law and order. There are some nice guys and some jerks. Unfortunately, the nice guys can’t reliably protect you from the jerks. Your best strategy is to ally yourself with one of the biggest jerks because he can sucessfully intimidate the lesser jerks. Repeat this over thousands of generations, and you have established a reliable trait of seeking out and submitting to jerks.
Or, imagine you were a young (cute) woman alone in Washington, DC during the 1990’s. Where would you go for safety and protection? Bubba’s Big Ol’ Man Cave, that’s where, baby! Wooohoooo!;)
And now they vote.
“He goes on to point out that in studies of polygamous societies, men who have killed tend to have more wives, and that even in the 21st century, testosterone levels correlate with status in organizations such as the U.S. Army. (But not in the U.S. job force: High levels of testosterone correlate negatively with career success in the United States. Corporate America really is full of girly-men. But you knew that.)”
LOL. Good one. :)
This is The Bent One, William Jefferson Clinton, to the T.
Even in Darwinist terms, sexual success ought to be measured by the number of offspring you have, not by the number of partners.
The Amish and the ultra-Orthodox Jews are not exactly famous for screwing around.
Civilization is the triumph of nice guys over the jerks. At least within the civilization - they might be conquering bastards to the rest of the world.
Let me testify.
Probably the same guy that got the one you wanted before she settle down.
