"Women really are drawn to men with the dark, brooding looks that suggest they are mad, bad or dangerous to know, according to new scientific research.
From the moody Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights to evil soap psychopath Richard Hillman in Coronation Street, women are attracted to their facial features, psychologists said.

But it is not the love of danger that attracts them but a primitive desire to find a mate who appears mentally strong, confident and physically attractive in order to have healthier children.

Such men have facial features that display the 'Dark Triad' of personality traits - Machiavellianism, narcissism and psychopathy - said research for the journal Evolution and Human Behaviour."



"Out of the three Dark Triad features, narcissism is most clearly associated with social success and physical and psychological health benefits in men."


women who want children show a clear preference for these features because, like natural selection among animals, it indicates strong genes and good health, both mental and physical.


Fiction is littered with handsome 'bad boys' from Shakespeare's Romeo, the spoilt heir in a warring family to James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause or even John Travolta's Danny Zuko in Grease.


The study was conducted jointly by psychologists from the University of Liverpool with colleagues in universities in both Poland and Finland.


[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]A total of 2,370 adult female volunteers were shown a selection of computer simulated men's faces in sets of two - with one face with more or less of the Dark Triad features than the other.[/font]


[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Women were asked which of the two they were most attracted to.[/font]

[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Some were attracted to men with strong features associated with psychopathy or Machiavellian traits or narcissists while others were not.[/font]



[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]• Women 'should stay away from rugged men if they want beautiful daughters'[/font]

[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Such features range from appearing 'aggressive' and 'less happy' as relating to psychopathic tendencies to 'dishonest' for Machiavellian and 'masculine' and 'dominant' for narcissists.[/font]


[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]Having been drawn to such men, there were mixed results when it came to producing families, said the research which at the number of children the women had actually produced.[/font]

[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]It found those who were strongly attracted to narcissistic men were likely to have more children than average.[/font]
[/font]
[/font]
[size=medium][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]But those who went for Machiavellian men had no more or less than average and if they fancied psychopaths they had less.[/font][/size]

[size=medium][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]The results took into account any differences that may have been caused by age, health and other factors.[/font][/size]





[size=medium][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]The researchers explained: "We examined whether preferences for the Dark Triad personality traits (i.e., Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy) in men's faces were related to reproductive success in contemporary women.[/font][/size]

[size=medium][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"Out of the three Dark Triad features, narcissism is most clearly associated with social success and physical and psychological health benefits in men.[/font][/size]



[size=medium][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"We predicted that women's preference for narcissism could be most strongly related to their reproductive success.[/font][/size]





"Women with strong preference for Machiavellian male faces reported fewer offspring than their same-aged peers with weak preference."



Psychologist researchers



[size=medium][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"In line with this, we found that women with preference for high narcissistic men's faces gave birth to more offspring.[/font][/size]

[size=medium][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"Women with strong preference for Machiavellian male faces reported fewer offspring than their same-aged peers with weak preference.[/font][/size]

[size=medium][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"And preference for psychopathic men's faces was unrelated to women's current number of offspring.[/font][/size]
[font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif][font=arial, helvetica, sans-serif]"These findings suggest that in modern society, women's preference for some of the Dark Triad traits in men may be related to their reproductive success."[/font][/font][/font]

No. That's only because in the media, the types that place these "dark triad" characters are attractive men.

Being a good lucking charismatic guy that gets along with everybody is better than being a narcissistic incel.

yes but a charismatic narcisstic guy that gets along with every body is even better. you are comparing 2 extremes in your example. its not that black and white


narcissism is a form of coping in the sense that you feel you are above other people for whatever reason and are able to delude yourself into making that your reality. this makes sense becuase women LOVE guys who can outcope other men. women like men who can delude themselves into thinking they are 10/10s and the best at whatever they do. these guys are MAJOR copecels and highly delusional but women equate narcissism with confidence. there is no distinction

Good looking guys tend to be more narcissistic BECAUSE they are good looking, it's not the narcissism they are attracted to it just happens to be a coincidence.

A good looking guy is narcisstic because he's good looking in the first place. There are no ugly narcissists.

god so much cope of this site lately. The reason that dark thriad if attractive to women is because of the success it brings. There was a certain research conducted that showed that the top corporate employees had a certain level of these traits

Also the sexy son hypothesis is legit. Dark traid men give off better looking sons which in turn can impregnate more females which propels both father and mothers genes of offspring

I only care what attractive women think. Wake me up when someone does a study where they only survey attractive women.

Now spouting bluepill PUA nonsense
and where exactly did i spout "bluepill pua nonsense"? i think you are missing the point. yea obviously the overlooked the fact that there is a big correlation between face/bone structure and "the dark triad".. im not denying that but you are missing the point im trying to make about narcissism and why its an attractive quality to women. i think the ppsychopathy and Machiavellian aspect is completely baseless so thats why i didnt address it. 

ill quote myself

lol too legit. they need to disregaurd whales opinions entirely as they have a warped view of reality from being fat unattractive. their opinions are worthless but 99.99% of studies on attraction are too bluepill to segregate population data on the merit of looks. when they do a study about women, whales should not be part of it!!
