How much Men in the state of passion prefer complete women
Results of research scientists from the UK
According to the results of the study, the men who have experienced stress change their addicts against the opposite sex, and give their preference to women in the body, in particular, because of the fact that nature has been programmed.
Presumably «Stress is changing what seems attractive to you in a potential partner.», — says Martin Tovee, cauthor of this study from the UK.

As you know, beauty standards change not only with time, but also depend on the geographical position. For example, in Africa or Malaysia in poor areas, people try to choose a more fastening partner. If you are complete, then you have enough food and, probably, a higher social status, so you can afford to be complete.
But people in prosperous countries have other preferences. Consequently, tastes & ndash; This is not something innate, but varying depending on the circumstances.
In the previous study, Tovi, along with colleagues, revealed that hungry students prefer full of people. In a new study, more attention was paid to the factor of stress, which is also much higher in disadvantaged countries from a financial point of view.

The study involved 81 people aged 18 to 42 years. Of these, 41 people were selected, which were constantly subjected to stress: created conditions as if they were on an interview with the employer or forced to quickly perform actions in the mind, in particular, to deduct 13 out of 1022.
After that, the subjects were given photos of women, and They had to appreciate how attractive them. The difference was small, but important, as Tovi noted.
The authors of the study put forward the theory that the evolution has programmed people to adapt their preferences under the current situation, and change them when circumstances change. However, there are some weaknesses in the study. We cannot appreciate how much men have been susceptible to stress. There was also a study of the inverse situation: how do women estimate men? Is there anything like that in women?

Steve Gangstad, Professor of Psychology from the University of New Mexico, suggested that this effect has a different explanation. A man under stress may have suffered a sense of self-esteem. They suffered fiasco in social terms. It is probably for this reason that the men were not in the position to reject women who are considered less attractive according to Western canons.
It seems that researchers will continue to work on this exciting topic.
What practical benefits can be learned From this study? According to Tovi, people will be easier to understand the factors that form preferences of people regarding appearance. For example, those who suffer from anorexia have a distorted perception of body sizes and an ideal body, so it is important to investigate fundamental mechanisms that affect the perception of body sizes. </ Span>
