Men perform good deeds to impress the opposite sex
Men are more likely to perform good deeds when being watched by women and will go to greater lengths if those observing them are attractive, psychologists claim.
Men will actively compete to outdo each other with generous acts when being watched by women, making more and larger displays of generosity if they are attracted to them, researchers from Sheffield Hallam and Oxford universities found.
Men donated much more often when the game was being observed by a woman, and the size of their contribution was directly linked to how attractive they judged her to be.
Women’s selflessness remained the same whether they were being watched by women, men or nobody.
