A QUT study into how women choose sperm donors online has revealed men who are intellectual, shy, calm and methodical are selected to produce more children than those who are extroverted.
“You would expect in an online setting, men would have to sell or promote themselves to women, and extroverted men should be better at doing that. But what we find is actually the opposite,” says study lead, Mr Stephen Whyte.
“Women were far less likely to choose the sperm of fretful or socially awkward men but at the same time those with lively, extroverted personalities were also less successful in being chosen.”
These findings support previous research that shows how good humans are at judging personality traits as well as having high levels of intelligence with only minimal exposure to appearance and behaviors.
