Men and women are just poles apart in their behaviors, that’s why it is always said Mens are from Mars and Women are form Venus. Men after seeing an attractive girl tend to be more generous and kind hearted, and most of them will be try too hard to impress the lady by false signs of tenderness, while the women in general remain un-affected and just remain as they are. Men become more charitable when in the presence of a woman they find pretty compared to the one they find unattractive, say a group of psychologists. However, women are not influenced by who they were with and they showed little change in the amount they gave.
Professor Robin Dunbar, from the Institute of Congnitive and Evolutionary Anthropology at Oxford University who led the study said, that men appeared to use act of generosity as a way of appealing female they were attracted to. Buying presents to impress has been a mating ritulals in humans for some time, but it appears that it is the act of generosity rather than the gift itself which is being used as the mating signal. We have found in previous study that women’s are attracted to generous man. They seem to be heroic type for short term relationships, but altruists for long term relationships.
Generosity could be a way for men to show suitability to invest in a relationship and help in rearing oofspring, he added. Researcher Wendy Iredale from the department of psychology at the university of Kent conducted the study with 45 male and 45 female volunteers who were asked to play a series of games that earned them upto 24 pounds in money. The participants , who were not told the the purpose of the study, were the asked if they would like to donate some of the earnings to the charity.
On each occasion they were either left alone to donate, or observed either by the member of the opposite sex or the same sex as they made their donations. They were then asked to rate the attractiveness of the person in the room with them. the scientist found that men donated 50 % to 100 % of their earnings when a women was in the room and were more generous when watched by a women they thought was attractive.
When they were with the men or accompanied they donated less than 40 % . The female volunteers donated an average of around 40 % regardless who was in the room.
