Men who can perform a perfect handbrake turn are more likely to sleep with attractive people. That is a fact, but apparently it is important for these people ‘what they do with it’. A new study from the UK shows that there is a link between an interest in sports cars and a petite young man.
But how do you conduct this research? The simplest approach would be to invite a large group of men for coffee, schedule a short measurement moment with the pants on the ankles and then ask if they ‘think Ferrari is such a cool brand’. These scientists take a more complicated approach, so the participants did not know that a connection is being investigated between sports cars and the length of a certain organ.
The participants are tricked
The researchers invite 200 men between the ages of 18 and 74 for a ‘memory test’. Supposedly, the scientists want to know how well the participants remember facts from articles while shopping on the internet. A percentage of the participants are given subtly false information about what constitutes an ‘average size’ during the study.
Some of these men receive information that makes them a little less self-assured to step into the shower after the next football training. Another part gets to read other false information that makes them wonder how it is possible that they are not light-headed every morning, just before getting up. Something with blood circulation.
Short-haired men like sports cars
After feeding the false facts, the scientists investigate how interested the men are in sports cars. What seems? The men who think they have something to compensate after the survey show more interest in sports cars. For example, the scientists conclude that there is a connection, so a small appendage, and the interest in sports cars.
This would also apply to other luxury goods, by the way. So men who are insecure will compensate. It is important to know that the research has not yet undergone peer review. Other scientists are therefore still allowed to shoot at the research to see if it really is all right.
