Poll: Strange charms of the opposite sex

goo Ranking recently asked what aspects of the opposite sex that others might find a little odd did people find alluring, for both men looking at women and women looking at men.


Between the 17th and 18th of January 2012 1,048 members of the goo Research online monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 61.6% of the sample were female, 12.3% in their teens, 15.6% in their twenties, 27.9% in their thirties, 25.8% in their forties, 9.5% in their fifties, and 8.9% in their sixties. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.

"1= He is a nerd in a particular field 100" <- Totally my taste.

There should be more nerds(and Nerd love) in life.

Smart people are always the most successful.

lol. wow. they don't mind scatterbrains. cool. cuz that's what I am and I hate that part of myself.

since I'm a geek, I don't mind nerds as long as they're not more awkward than I am.

why would you find asexuality as an attractive trait unless you were also asexual

the eating a lot and jokes falling flat are cute

nova_usagi 28th-Mar-2012 02:47 am (UTC)
It`s 中性的 which means "androgynous" not "asexual"

emeraldxdew 27th-Mar-2012 11:56 pm (UTC)
LOL The guys seem more divided about their answers than the ladies.

And wait- since when was liking a guy because "he is tall" considered strange? 0_o
wayof_life 28th-Mar-2012 12:03 am (UTC)
Because Japanese are general short. They think the other being tall is somewhat a hindrance to the r/s somehow. They rather have a better view of the guy when talking lol

中性的 is "androgynous" not "asexual"

go_chan2011 28th-Mar-2012 12:08 am (UTC)
I find all these options odd, guess that you have to be Japanese to get these things?O_o LMAO!^_^

He is asexual


He has strong body odour

Ew. No!

He is cold towards me

Reason to break up tbh.

中性的 means "adrogynous" not "asexual"

It`s probably in reference to looks, being a pretty boy instead of a macho manly man.
traviell 28th-Mar-2012 12:14 am (UTC)
Being tall is a strange charm? oO
scubajr 28th-Mar-2012 12:26 am (UTC)
"She is scatterbrained"
nami 28th-Mar-2012 06:17 pm (UTC)
If they think that, all the female anime characters now suddenly make sense XD

Although I would think that's rather cute too... Unless it's scatterbrained to the point of being ultra annoying of course.
