Sexual Traits Influence the Importance of Money

( - April 15, 2004) TrueBeginnings, a newer online dating service, has put out the results of a survey that revealed sexual traits such as faithfulness, libido and jealousy can predict how important money is to an individual.

Based on a national survey of more than 9,400 men and women, the study concludes the following:

* More commitment to money means less commitment to personal relationships. Men and women who place a great deal of importance on money are less likely to be faithful in personal relationships than those individuals who feel that money is not a top priority.

* Interest in money and sex go hand-in-hand. The majority of men and women who are very interested in money tend to have higher-than-average libido.

* Tendency to be jealous increases as interest in money increases. Although they tend to be less faithful in personal relationships, men and women who place high importance on money are more likely to become jealous.

Additionally, the study found that the amount of importance people place on money tends to decrease with age, and that money tends to be a slightly higher priority for women than for men -- except among persons aged 60 or older, where men tend to be more interested in money than women.

"Anyone who has ever been in a serious relationship is aware that financial issues affect couples more than just about anything else. So, instead of exploring the general reasons behind this, we decided to zero-in on how sex and money affect individuals, specifically whether a correlation exists between sexual factors -- such as faithfulness, libido and jealousy -- and a person's interest in money," said Dr. James Houran, director of psychological studies at TrueBeginnings and a 14-year veteran in the field of research and clinical psychology. "What we learned is that, in fact, a strong correlation does exist. People tend to form relationships with money, and the nature of these relationships have a direct impact on the way we interact with other people. As a person becomes more involved with money, he or she tends to be less willing to commit to personal relationships, including romantic ones. Such people are also more likely to be jealous and tend to be more libidinous."

The survey is part of TrueBeginnings' ongoing effort to conduct, analyze and release up-to-date scientific data about relationships and online dating.
