Dark triad personality
aka why “chicks dig jerks”: A catchall phrase that describes the personality types MANY women are naturally attracted to:
Why are women attracted to these “bad boys”?
- Low neuroticism and extroverted
- Low amounts of empathy and agreeableness
- Not prone to being needy or over investing
In other words they're a challenge and tend to live life by their own rules. Some research on the subject has also shown that Dark Triad personality types are more likely to be successful in business. Furthermore:
- Works best for short-term mating strategy
- Being disagreeable (an asshole) is attractive to women
- Being power-hungry is attractive to women
- Never sweating the small stuff is attractive to women
In other words, being an aloof, uncaring asshole — an amalgamation of all the above traits — makes you optimally attractive to the greatest number of women (in the short term). However, these traits are NOT conducive to emotionally healthy long-term relationships.
