This Is the One Thing That Makes Men Intimidated by Women

It's no surprise that men and women, at times, can be complete mysteries to one another. We try our best to read between the lines, decipher the other's mannerisms, and keep up with all the shifts that take place as we enter different stages in our lives. But no manual can ever keep up with the ways in which we find ourselves scratching our heads in confusion. Sometimes the opposite sex just doesn't make sense. And when it comes to trying to keep up with how the other sex interprets us, well, that's even more baffling! As an intelligent woman, sometimes it can seem like men are intimidated by your success, but the thought of that can feel really egotistical, so you shake it off. However, a new study has found that there is much more to it. Men are intimidated by smart women. The study was held out of University of Buffalo, where California Lutheran University and the University of Texas at Austin discovered that although men like the thought of dating an intelligent woman, when it comes to the actual act of dating them, they aren't having it. In fact, they see ladies with brains as less desirable people to partner up with. To conduct the experiment, researchers requested that 105 men read over a hypothetical scenario in which a woman either did incredibly well or poorly in a math or English class. Then, the men had to imagine this woman as being their romantic partner. Given this hypothetical instance, the men opted for the smart women. When they were given intelligence tests and then made aware of the fact that they would meet a woman who performed better or worse on the same exam, the results proved to differ. The results showed that the men preferred the women who didn't do as well as they did. The results may be a bummer for women with brains, but the results aren't truly that surprising, since its been found that intelligent women tend to be single. Another study proved to have similar outcomes, which involved 121 British participants and discovered that women with high intelligence were viewed as being “problematic.” Do these findings shock you?
