«My girlfriend - blonde, and even though we were both quite attractive, men pay more attention to it when we go somewhere together.Is it true that gentlemen prefer blondes? "- This question with slight variations several times asked a huge number of professionals in the field of psychology, and other fields of modern medical science.
When answering this question just remember the catch phrase, "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes", but, as the material posted on the pages of an Internet resource Inopressa.ru, is evidence that men prefer blondes, is hardly unambiguous.
This issue is reflected in evolutionary psychology (which, I must say, quite often ridiculed by many scientists).But now this issue has excited a group of experts from the City University, who conducted a study commissioned by the well-known manufacturer of products for hair care Sunsilk.
During this work, scientists asked 468 men to describe the three models, made with the help of computer technology.The only difference between these models is the
results of the survey proved to be sufficiently interesting.As, however, to be expected, 53% of respondents said that in their opinion, most people find blondes more attractive, although they seem to be less intelligent, but more affordable.And yet, most of the respondents admitted that hair color - is not the main attraction in women.As for those respondents whose hair color was important, the man with blond hair prefer blondes, whereas a man with dark hair - brunettes.It is worth mentioning that according to some, this study suffers from some kind of bias, since it can be assumed that by choosing the blonde, men seem afraid to surface.
A number of other studies suggest that the idea of the perfect figure quite significantly different in different cultures, but quite difficult to find differences in the perception of color in the hair, not belonging to the so-called "West".
can mention another study involving 130 men and 112 women.The authors of the experiment suggested the participants to spread out in the order of preference of 12 images of people with different color as the skin and hair.According to the study, the subjects brunette quoted above all other applicants, have a light skin.
Some scholars are inclined to believe that in the days of the ice age blonde valued much higher than their compatriots of other representatives of the weaker, but the fair sex.As an example, this can result in the publication of the Canadian anthropologist Peter Frost, who in the pages of his work argues that the shortage of men because of the high mortality rate during the hunt, led to the fact that the blonde had escaped the leader of popularity.This is due to the fact that their appearance stands out from the crowd.In particular, Frost leads one study, the results of which suggest that the blonde hair darken with age more slowly, and therefore suggest youth and fertility of their owners.This hypothesis Canadian anthropologist shows throughout the 12 pages of his work, calling at the same shade of genetic MC1R (which, incidentally, did not manage to play through artificial coloring hair) responsible for the changes in Europe (as opposed to the color of the hair of people in other continents).
At the time, a lot of noise done numerous publications in the media, which reported on the rather unusual projections of the World Health Organisation.Allegedly specialists of this esteemed organization predict the extinction of natural blondes already by 2022, due to the presence of a recessive gene and more attractive dyed blondes.However, later it turned out that it all turned out, to put it mildly, it is far from the truth.WHO issued a press release in which it refuted all such allegations, and said that its members do not even have ideas about the future of the owners of blond hair.
