Ten Politically Incorrect Truths About Human Nature

A very interesting Psychology Today article lists these as ten politically incorrect truths about human nature:
  1. Men like blond bombshells (and women want to look like them)

  2. Humans are naturally polygamous

  3. Most women benefit from polygamy, while most men benefit from monogamy

  4. Most suicide bombers are Muslim

  5. Having sons reduces the likelihood of divorce

  6. Beautiful people have more daughters

  7. What Bill Gates and Paul McCartney have in common with criminals

  8. The midlife crisis is a myth—sort of

  9. It's natural for politicians to risk everything for an affair (but only if they're male)

  10. Men sexually harass women because they are not sexist
The article goes on to examine supporting explanations for each of these myths. Eerie stuff...
