In a report on their findings the researchers said: 'We conclude men's cognitive functioning may temporarily decline after an interaction with an attractive woman.' Psychologist Dr George Fieldman, a member of the British Psychological Society, said the findings reflect the fact that men are programmed to think about ways to pass on their genes.
'When a man meets a pretty woman, he is what we call 'reproductively focused'.
Nick decides that Jared is pretty cool, and decides to see if he can spend the night, in hopes of becoming better friends.
Nick: Hey Jared, so do you have anything going on Friday or Saturday? N: Well I was wondering if you wanted to spend the night on Friday, and hang out Saturday, my aunt already said it was alright. Nick goes home and puts all of his school things away in the laundry room (which is his bedroom replacement), and changes into some black AE basketball shorts and a white v-neck t-shirt.
Psychologists at Radboud University in The Netherlands carried out the study after one of them was so struck on impressing an attractive woman he had never met before, that he could not remember his address when she asked him where he lived.
And while scientists might have rescued men from a telling off for sleeping straight after orgasm, it seems perhaps understandable that the latest research won't do the same for those who doze before reaching climax.For example, 25-year-old women using the app who decide they want to meet only 25-year-old men can adjust their settings appropriately so their profile is only visible to that group.I have no idea if Grindr can do these things, however, because I don't pretend I have the app on my phone to facilitate Twitter updating or connect with other jai alai enthusiasts or whatever.The research shows men who spend even a few minutes in the company of an attractive woman perform less well in tests designed to measure brain function than those who chat to someone they do not find attractive The research shows men who spend even a few minutes in the company of an attractive woman perform less well in tests designed to measure brain function than those who chat to someone they do not find attractive.Researchers who carried out the study, published in the Journal of Experimental and Social Psychology, think the reason may be that men use up so much of their brain function or 'cognitive resources' trying to impress beautiful women, they have little left for other tasks.
