cheaters biology letters

A recent Australian study released this week reports that women are better at spotting cheaters than men.

A new Australian study published in the journal “Biology Letters” on Wednesday contends that women can tell whether a man is faithful or not by simply staring him in the face, according to reporting Reuters. Men, however, do not possess the same skills as their counterparts with regards to spotting a potential female cheater, the article states.

Findings from the student found that women formulated their opinions about men who stray based on their degree of masculinity and not on how attractive they are physically. “Women’s ratings of unfaithfulness showed small-moderate, significant correlations with measures of actual infidelity,” wrote the team, led by Gillian Rhodes at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders at the University of Western Australia in Perth. “More masculine-looking men (were) rated as more probable to be unfaithful and having a sexual history of being more unfaithful.”

The study consisted of 34 men and 34 women who were shown 189 color photographs of adults. The subjects were asked to determine whether each person depicted in the photo was faithful or not. The scientists then compared the biographical data supplied by each person’s photo to the participant’s responses.  The researchers then concluded that the women participants were better able to tell whether someone was a cheater or not.

“We provide the first evidence that faithfulness judgments, based solely on facial appearance, have a kernel of truth,” they wrote in the paper.

The male participants were clueless as to which female pictured in the photograph was a cheater. The scientists discovered, that the male subjects based their responses with regards to cheating based on a woman’s attractiveness. The men seemed to automatically categorize the beautiful women pictured as cheaters.

The researchers involved in the study, however, say there may be an evolutionary reason as to why women are better at identifying possible philanderers: women with cheating spouses risk losing resources to competitors.

Oh well, this study certainly debunks the old clichés, “you can’t judge a book by its cover” and “appearances can be deceiving.”
