Men Are Threatened By Smart Women, Says New Study, But Smart Women In History Couldn't Care Less

In a new study to be published in November's Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, researchers discovered that — while men like the idea of dating a smarter woman in theory — coupling up with a brainy lady might be threatening to men's masculinity. To come to this determination, researchers from the University of Buffalo, the University of Texas at Austin, and California Lutheran University polled male participants using a hypothetical scenario involving a woman who had either outperformed or underperformed the man in a math or English class. Happily, the preliminary results proved men do fancy ladies with smarts. "Men formed favorable impressions and showed greater interest in women who displayed more (versus less) intelligence than themselves," the researchers reveal.

Coming from Planet Android, I wasn’t as put off by the larger dimensions as everyone else in the technosphere seemed to be. But I was, as usual, put off by one thing that both the Apple product and its archnemesis from Google shared: the unpocketability of the phone, particularly by females. This isn’t a new problem for women. Being A Waiter Or Waitress Is One Of The Most Stressful Jobs You Can Do, Study Suggests. Next time you're dining out, spare a little thought for the person serving your food. A new study has suggested that being a waiter or waitress is one of the most stressful jobs and can therefore have a detrimental effect on an individual's health. The research, conducted by scientists at Southern Medical University in Guangzhou, China, analysed data from six previous studies on job-related health involving a total of 138,782 participants. Looking at reported job stress, the study found that jobs with high demand and little situational control, such as waitressing, may be more stressful than jobs with high demand and high situational control, such as teaching.

Jobs were classified into four groups for the study based on how much control workers had over their jobs and the psychological demands of the job. The job demands included time pressure, mental load and coordination burdens. Looking at the data, the researchers split jobs into the following categories: Close.

The Jobs Are Never Coming Back. I just watched former Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm’s TED Talk. She provides some nice insight as to what it is really like as a politician trying to grapple with the new realities of the modern world; trying to save jobs in America that just don’t make sense economically any more. Granholm also raises the need to address global climate change as an enigma on equal footing with economic issues. What makes her talk interesting is she sees that a solution to the climate change problem could also be a solution to economic woes, a surprising position given the normal myopia of politicians when it comes to linking environment with economy. While I like the general slant of Granholm’s view, in particular with respect to proposing a feasible means of stimulating the move to green energy through competitive incentivization programs, I have to disagree that even a major shift to green energy in America is somehow going to bring back “good jobs”.

The jobs are never coming back. See the future. Rochester, N.Y.
