According to the findings of a study published in the British Journal of Psychology, people with certain traits are more likely to cheat in a relationship.
The study examined 123 heterosexual adults who were in a relationship and ranged in age from 17 to 25 years of age. At the conclusion of the study, they found out that people with some traits are more likely to cheat than others.
1. Impulsive partner:
An impulsive person is someone who acts quickly without considering the repercussions.
Likewise, impulsive persons, according to the researchers, are more likely to cheat in a relationship since they act without thinking about it or analyzing the situation.
2. They’ve previously cheated:
A person who has previously cheated on his partner is three times more likely to do so on the next partner, according to a study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.
3. According to the study, people who have shared sexual intimacy with many partners are more likely to be unfaithful in a relationship because they have certain skills that help them recognize sexual advances from people.
4. Parental infidelity:
According to Texas Tech research, cheating has an intergenerational tendency.
According to this study, a person is more likely to cheat if they have witnessed a significant amount of infidelity from those around them, particularly if it occurred inside their own family.
This is because those who know their parents cheated in a relationship may have a more tolerant view of infidelity.
5. They have fewer oxytocin and vasopressin receptors in the brain:
Oxytocin and vasopressin are two hormones that play a role in social bonding.
According to a study published in Evolution and Human Behavior, having fewer oxytocin and vasopressin receptors in the brain is associated with a higher chance of infidelity. Cheating is more likely to be physical than emotional for these people.
Although cheating can occur for a variety of reasons and varies depending on the circumstances, experts and research only found that people with certain traits are more likely to cheat.
But it is not a definite certainty, but a noticeable trend. Do you think their findings are right to some extent?
