Abstract

The study tested the proposition that relationship length influences female perceptions about the co-occurrence of traits in prospective mates. It was hypothesized that females when choosing short-term mates would infer that beautiful males possess positive personality traits and, alternatively, females when choosing long-term mates would infer dominant males possess other positive personality traits. To test the hypothesis, female university students viewed a target male that was available for either a long- or a short-term relationship. The target male's physical attractiveness and dominance was systematically manipulated. As predicted, females inferred physically attractive males were more intelligent and kind when evaluating potential short-term mates. When evaluating potential long-term mates the females inferred socially dominant males were more intelligent and kind.

Several former studies have suggested that mates resemble each other in various personality traits. In the recent study Big Five Inventory was used to examine similarities and differences on fundamental dimensions of personality in heterosexual people. Additionally, we predict that homogamy also occurs in homosexual people, which was based on the recent evidence that gay men's mate preferences are hardly distinguishable from those of heterosexual men. However, our hypotheses were not supported by our data. No significant correlations have been found between mates in personality traits in neither heterosexuals, nor homosexuals. At the same time, an interesting result - more exactly, a lack of a significant relationship - was found: compared to heterosexuals, homosexuals, on average, did not show difference in any of the five subscales of Big Five Inventory. The measured similarities in personality traits correspond with some recent studies that concluded that homosexuals have the same set of psychological mechanisms, including sexual mental processes that heterosexuals do, except for sexual orientation. This argument is strongly supported by the modularity conception that states that domain-specific cognitive algorithms are responsible for guiding particular behavioral traits.

Abstract

The facial photographs of 84 heterosexual women were rated for attractiveness by 74 males and 74 females who also made judgements regarding the personality and behaviour of these women. Both sexes judged physically attractive women as possessing more desirable personality traits and also as being more promiscuous than less attractive women. These findings extend the beauty-is-good stereotype, also attributing a more unrestricted sexual strategy to attractive women. This is consistent with research identifying the actual strategies of attractive women. It is argued that both sexes would benefit — in terms of mate choice and identification of rivals — from identifying attractive women as likely to be more promiscuous.
