Men Think Listening Is Sexy; Women Think Many Things

A recent study published in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin concludes that men are more likely to report that conversationally attentive women are sexier. Women, meanwhile, are likely to have a handful of reactions. Some women reported that concentrated fellows were desirable, while others saw responsiveness as simply a trick of seduction. A third group thought that good listeners were just too nice, which negated their attractiveness. Good luck communicating, everyone! Sorry you made it so complicated for yourselves.
