Men are easier to cheat
SCIENTISTS have raised suspicions of old age that men are more likely to cheat.
They found that men were more likely to have “dark personality traits” that were linked to infidelity among others. negative behavior.
This includes being unsympathetic, manipulative, and even violent.
Researchers from the Universidade da Coruna investigated how dark personality traits affect young people’s intimate relationships.
They asked 308 participants between the ages of 18 and 25 about their sex lives – everything from long-term relationships to porn use.
They then assessed what are known as “dark personality traits” and moral indulgence, including 12 different variables.
These include mechanism, narcissism, psychopathy, sadism, moral justification, abdication of responsibility, dispersion of responsibility, dehumanization, and attribution of blame.
The results show that men have higher levels of darkness and moral indulgence than women.
And these men “also show a greater tendency towards unfaithfulespecially repeated adultery”.
People who score high on dark personality traits also have a preference for celibacy.
They are more likely to jump between relationships, be promiscuous, and have multiple sex partners on the go.
These trends can be explained Why do people lie?As opposed to a lack of self-control, the researchers said.

Abusive tactics can also include emotional manipulation and taking up a partner’s time.

Research in the journal Acta Psychologica in the journal Acta Psychologica by Elsevier suggests that your man may be more likely to cheat if he has a history of flirting.
Study authors Laura Ferreiros and Miguel Clemente said: ‘People with darker personality traits are able to establish short-term relationships more easily.
“They often have low expectations of their future life partner, especially for men.
“Also, even if their initial expectations are high, they are willing to cut back for a wider selection of partners.”
In their conclusion, the researchers say: “These results aid in the design of interventions to prevent sexual harassment and abuse among young adults and intimate partner relationships. their needs”.
