My old friend Andrew's dictum now has scientific proof...the part about assholes, that is.
(Monet will have to wait for another day, though an unscientific survey of freshman dorm rooms seems to confirm the assertion)
New Scientist reports that two separate studies confirm what the nice guys of the world have always known, and the hot chicks of the world refuse to admit: Chicks dig assholes.
And by dig, I mean making sweet, sweet love.
Of course, being scientists, they have to dress out their conclusions in more roundabout language:
"The study found that those who scored higher on the dark triad personality traits [narcissism, psychopathy, Machiavellian] tended to have more partners and more desire for short-term relationships, Jonason reported at the Human Behavior and Evolution Society meeting in Kyoto, Japan, earlier this month. But the correlation only held in males."
Translation? If you want to get it on, drop the caring tone and buy yourself a black leather jacket. Thank me later.
