I’m fascinated by people.
As often as people seem to fall into common patterns, their preferences can be incredibly diverse.
Do we like diversity? Is Paula Abdul right, and Opposites Attract?
The journal Evolutionary Psychology, asked 760 members of an online dating site if they would prefer someone like them or if they would like someone different than them. 85.7% of participants claim to want someone who has their opposite traits.
Then they were asked if they most wanted a partner that complemented them, or resembled them.
