Blonde women more aggressive, determined according to study

'Blonde women - even bottle blondes - are more likely to fight for what they want than brunettes and redheads, according to a University of California study.

The researchers expected blondes to feel more entitled than other young women - "this is southern California, the natural habitat of the privileged blonde," lead researcher Aaron Sell told The Times, but they were surprised at the lengths blonde women went to in the interests of getting their own way.'

Re: Blonde women more aggressive, determined according to study

I can see how if you are used to being treated like a "princess" you would be more likely to expect such treatment from everyone.

Thank God I prefer brunettes

Re: Blonde women more aggressive, determined according to study

Yeah right! Try growing up in a country where everybody is blond and see how easy it is to get special treatment because you're blond then.

Re: Blonde women more aggressive, determined according to study

It appears that the emphasis of this study is on correlating attractiveness with behaviour rather than hair colour: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8464990.stm. Blondes are only rated as "more attractive than brunettes and redheads".

Ok - obviously if everyone is blond then a brunette gets the special treatment. According to this study it is not JUST blondes, but pretty women in general.....

Re: Blonde women more aggressive, determined according to study

Haha, being blonde never got me anywhere, to be honest. Not even into rock bands, had to work hard. Though, it is true, that eventhough some males can view blondes more attractive, females can try to make their lives hell, makes me laugh..


life is hard, innit
