I am trying to understand the domination thing, but I just don't get it.

I am admittedly not too smart.

Also admittedly not too experienced.

If a woman wants to dominate somebody, is she making up for feelings of powerlessness in her daily activities?

Is she uncomfortable being vulnerable?

Have a disdain for even partnership?

I am having a hard time understanding the mentality.

Thanks.

Read the original report. That's not the study's conclusion nor is it what the data indicate. And the study is a small study in a very homogeneous population of college students.

It isn't even what those newspaper reports say! I'd say misrepresentation of science, but I'm not sure this was great science to begin with.

The OP pretty much never goes back to original reports or does any further investigation into the phenomenon comments on at all, but only ever relies on sensationalised and/or over-simplified media reports, which they post with clickbaity headlines and very little actual analysis. I really don't understand what the point is at all ... it's bizarre.

Between the shaky conclusions/reproducibility problems of the "soft sciences", and the clickbaity "did they even read the press release?" tendencies of the headlines on such things, I'm inclined to shrug off most such articles.

Though I'd imagine that, given that we're talking about relationships and attraction here, it's the *perception* of intelligence that's always more important than actual intellect.
