Women prefer guitarists
Women prefer men who play guitar. The journal Psychology of Music reports that researchers in France asked a 20-year-old man to approach 300 women in their ‘20s and early ‘30s in a public shopping district. In each instance, the man introduced himself, complimented the woman and asked for her phone number. Sometimes he was empty-handed, other times he carried a sports bag, and other times he held a guitar case.

The results? Nearly one-third of the women provided their number when the subject carried the guitar case, as opposed to just 14 percent who complied when he was empty-handed. The results when carrying a sports bag were even worse, yielding a paltry nine percent success rate. In their conclusion, the study’s authors suggest that musical talent is often associated with “physical and intellectual abilities.”
