Are you worried you're attracted to a psychopath? Fear not, according to a new study, women are more attracted to men with psychopathic traits.
Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho explains the results of a study, which tested 46 men between the ages of 17 and 45, who made a dating video and took a questionnaire to see how many psychopathic traits they had. When 100 women viewed these videos, the women found the men with the most psychopathic traits to be the most sexually attractive.
Dr. Judy explains these seemingly shocking findings, saying psychopaths often appear charming, confident, are able to mimic emotions, good at playing to people's emotions and skilled manipulators. She also says psychopaths are often skilled in effective non-verbal communication, which can seem like they are good at flirting or connecting in face-to-face situations.
She goes on to explain that when it comes to dating, these traits can seem attractive. She also says this type of personality can seem exciting or exhilarating before someone realizes what is truly at play.
