Smart guys less likely to cheat, say a bunch of nerdy, brainiac scientists
    #12514718 - 05/06/10 12:14 AM (4 years, 3 months ago)

http://www.asylum.com/2010/03/01/men-with-high-iq-are-more-monogamous/

Quote:

Intelligent Men Are More Sexually Faithful

The higher a man's I.Q., the more likely he is to practice sexual exclusivity.

Using a pair of massive general surveys of the American population -- the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health and the General Social Survey -- British researchers were able to ascertain that high I.Q. is positively correlated with monogamy.

According to London School of Economics professor Satoshi Kanazawa, who headed the study, sexual exclusivity is 'evolutionary novel' for men. The evolutionary psychologist speculates that it is easier for intelligent men to overcome their primal urges and honor their sexual vows and commitments. There is no evidence that smarter women are any more faithful.

So the best way for a fellow to ensure he finds a life partner who won't cheat is still, in the immortal words of Jimmy Soul, to "get an ugly girl to marry you."

I would agree that the correlation is true. 

I also would say that there is a strong positive correlation between other forms of morality and IQ though.

For a 20 year old, I have a very high IQ and would never cheat on a partner just because I know the lasting mental effects that can have on somebody.

Nothing to be proud of dude.  I know that humans, just like animals, were probably not meant to stay with one partner for life.

However, why be in a relationship and cause somebody else emotional pain like that?

You know it hurts, so why do it?

never claimed to be proud of it. "not saying its ok. just calling a log a log." shoulda said "calling a spade a spade" but whatever.....  I was just stating a fact and not sugarcoating it for anybody

I don't enter the relationship intending to cheat. it just happens. usually involves alcohol and a temporary drop in judgement.  so sue me.

I'm sure there is another correlation where money, fame and the opportunity to cheat increase it as well.

So basically intelligent people are better at controlling their base desires? Doesn't sound too far out to me...

Hey now us nerds have better jobs in our mid 20's then you meat heads.
Women like security and if your a nerdy guy making 80 k a year that seams pretty secure.


--------------------
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I would consider myself to be on the higher end of the intelligence spectrum and I would never cheat. Moral debates puzzle me because to me they seem so black and white. Why would you hurt someone you care about?

Yep, same here. Never have, never will. Nor do I put up with it. I'm not a believer in karma, but I am a big believer in the old saying "treat others as you want to be treated."
