KUEENSLAND, November 23 – New research in Australia revealed that men and women who are more extroverted can have more sex than their usual colleagues.
Researchers at the Kueensland University of Technology have studied data from 2998 heterosexual men and 1,480 heterosexual women who had been involved in Australian sex research for 2016.
Participants responded to a range of socio-demographic questions, as well as completing the BIG 5 test of personality tests, which is currently the most widely accepted personality system, measuring the level of extroversion, compliance, neurotics, conscientiousness and openness to experience.
Finds, published in the journal Personality and individual differences, has shown that for men and women a higher degree of extraversion is associated with a higher level of sexual frequency, which is also a result that is also consistent with previous research.
In addition, in men, a large number of personality traits, especially more conscientious, emotionally more stable and more suitable, but also more extroverted, is also associated with several sexual activities.
Greater extra virility or less openness in men is also associated with more children.
However, only "more pleasant" women had more children.
Findings suggest that certain combinations of personality traits can give husbands the advantage of seeking partner and reproduction, but not necessarily females.
"Throughout history, competitive advantages have helped men and women achieve greater success in their profession, sports, artistic efforts, their ability to acquire and secure resources and, finally, their survival," explains researcher Dr Stephen Vhite.
"However, little is known about the advantages, or disadvantages, of the characteristics of the characteristics related to the sexual activity and the success of descendants. Science has no real understanding of how personality traits affect mating and reproductive behavior, and in particular whether certain types of personality favor men or women. "
"Our findings suggest that a higher variance in male characteristics and their specific combinations can provide an advantage for them when it comes to sex and reproduction, but that does not happen to the women we analyzed," he said. – AFP-Relaknews
