Really? Study suggests men with psychopathic traits are more attractive to women

Posted: Updated:
CANADA -

Men who display psychopathic traits were found to be more desirable to women, according to a new study.

The study, published last month in Evolutionary Psychological Science, was done by two researchers at a university in Canada.

In the study, dozens of men were asked to participate in mock dating scenario videos.

Women would view the dating videos and rate each man on general attractiveness, sexual attractiveness and confidence.

Individuals with psychopathic behavior tend to be well-liked, don't experience remorse, have an inflated sense of importance and often lie, cheat and steal to get ahead.
