A new research has been added to the factors that play a role in people’s partner preferences. Sacrifice and thinking about others
We know that features like are attractive to some people. However, such features can be exhibited in many different areas. The field of our research on the subject of theology is environmentalism, which is gradually becoming the ‘only way’ in today’s world.
According to a study published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences, men and women who have an environmentalist attitude in daily life and take their decisions on this side finds individuals more attractive. Heterosexual participants in the study say that altruistic behavior by someone of the opposite sex affects them.
The one who carried a thermos was better than the one who used a plastic cup:
In our world, where climate change is getting worse every month, not every year, and it is starting to lose its appeal, of course, to learn about the environment and act accordingly; our only option to have a future. But protecting our world from human damage isn’t the only benefit of environmentalism, according to a new study. Naturally, this part is nice, It makes the most sense to be an environmentalist only for the environment.
In a previous study, it was revealed that self-sacrificing individuals who think about the benefit of society are more attractive by the opposite sex. A one-on-one study, this time on a more specific issue: Environmentalism. 157 heterosexual adults, participants were given hypothetical scenarios involving possible romantic partners. In some of these scenarios, the possible partner is portrayed as being more conscious about the environment, while others are indifferent; another was portrayed as unconscious or neutral.
In the dwelling of the character who is environmentalist classifies its waste and sends it to recycling, it was said that he carried a metal thermos with him for the coffee he would buy from outside. While the neutral character ate at a local restaurant and supported the shopkeepers and farmers, he ordered a meal made of wasteful materials for the environment. The reckless person drank his coffee and water from plastic cups and bottles every day. The result was not very heartwarming for this friend.
Participants were then asked to imagine a pollster asking them how much time they spent recycling. Participants who were asked to rate 1 to 5 rated themselves higher when they saw photos of the interviewer being attractive to the opposite sex. Thus, most people wants to appear environmentalist to potential partners appeared.
Environmentalist attitude is a must-have behavior in many societies; seen as the norm. This study was carried out with participants from England. Therefore, researchers recognize that the results may be different in regions where environmentalism is not now considered sufficiently valuable finger prints.
