It turns out there’s a downside to having both beauty and brains.

A new study finds that men “showed less attraction toward women who outsmarted them,” theIndependent reports.

Researchers at the University of Buffalo, California Lutheran University, and the University of Texas, Austin, conducted the study.

According to the Independent, the findings will be published in the November edition of “Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin.”

The study was divided in two parts. At first, men were read a hypothetical scenario involving women who either outperformed or under performed them in a math or English course, and then made to imagine them as a romantic partner.

After, they were asked to rank a woman who outscored them as a more desirable partner.

“Men formed favorable impressions and showed greater interest in women who displayed more intelligence than themselves,” the study found, according to the Independent.

However, in the second part of the study, men were asked if they would date these women in real life, and the men’s attraction to these women changed.

Although the authors of the study believe more experimentation may be needed to confirm the conclusion, the Independent reports that they do believe “feelings of diminished masculinity accounted for men’s decreased attraction toward women who outperformed them.”

I have met several men that were smarter than me, but no women who were actually smarter. One thought she was, simply because she had got into law school and because her mother told her every day of her life that she was smarter than other people. In reality she was dumb as a bag of potatoes.

Men don’t need smart women. It doesn’t take much brains to make a sandwich, raise a baby and chug a cock. We don’t need them to have successful careers, nor plan the family’s future.

On the flipside, I’ve only once met a woman who was content to do the heavy lifting and let her husband live the good life at home.

That’s perfect really, I’m not attracted to stupid men (or women, for that matter).
It’s nice to know that any man not attracted to me, just because I’m smarter than him, is not going to bother me… saves me the time of shutting him down and sending him on his way.

Nice, Argustuft; I’ve found men that need women to be “less than they are” are merely showing their own insecurities and inadequacies.

A strong, smart man is not afraid of strong, smart women.
