    Post Study reveals world's most jealous men

    Study reveals world's most jealous men

    By Dr David Whitehouse
    BBC News Online science editor


    The green-eyed monster of jealousy is alive and well - and living in Brazil, according to an international study.

    In relationships, it is well known than men are mostly jealous about sex, while women are mostly concerned about emotional attachments.

    Psychologists have conflicting explanations for this, believing it comes either from evolution or from culture. The new cross-cultural research suggests the former is more important.

    It reveals that Brazilian men are the most jealous; Swedish men and women are more concerned about sex than any other nation, and Japan is the least jealous country.

    Evolution or society

    In many cultures, men tend to be most jealous about their partners having sex with someone else. Women, on the other hand, are more likely to be upset about their partners forming an emotional attachment with another party.

    It seems that males want to know if their rival was good in bed; females want to know if he loves the "other woman".

    Psychologists argue about the source of jealousy. Does it have deep-rooted origins in human evolution, or has it been modified by more recent social changes?

    'O beware, my lord, of jealousy; It is the green eyed monster which doth mock The meat it foods on'

    Shakespeare, Othello

    Those in favour of the evolutionary explanation say it could be due to the fact that men can never be absolutely certain that a child is really theirs. Hence, their desire for partners not to have sex with another man.

    They also maintain that the origin of jealousy in women is due to the substantial investment they make in time and energy in producing a child. They do not want it to be wasted if their partner falls in love with someone else.

    The alternative viewpoint is that men are upset by sex because they think it implies emotional commitment, although they also believe a woman can be emotionally involved without having sex.

    Women are upset by emotional infidelity because they believe that for men it automatically means sex, although women believe that men can have sex without commitment.

    Evolution and fertility

    Gary Brase, working at the University of Sunderland, UK, looked at jealousy in many countries and found the expected differences between men and women.

    He found that the biggest difference between men and women was in Brazil; the smallest in Japan. Another finding was that Swedish women were the most concerned about their partners having sex with someone else.

    Looking deeper into his survey, Brase noticed that the fertility rate of the country seemed to make a big difference.

    Countries with high fertility rates, like Brazil, had men who were very jealous about their partners having sex with others. Men in countries with a lower overall fertility rate, such as Japan, were less bothered.

    Brase believes the results support the evolutionary view of the origin of jealous behaviour.

    Quite interesting. We could have done without the White and Negro couple though, the media constantly seeks to expose such relationships, it is sickening.

    Anyways, I think both Evolution and Culture tend to leave an impact on a person's level of jealousy, eventually it is all up to the person involved and his/her partner. I do believe that a couple possesses each other, and that jealousy is a result of that possession, love plays a big deal in it as well. I do not know if I am jealous I never had outbursts of jealousy but I would get seriously annoyed if I see the wrong people talking to my potential partner, people known to flirt constantly or to be degenerates or non-Europid. Jealousy taken above the limits is dangerous, a little amount of jealousy is good in my opinion.

    As mentioned in the "if your partner had previously slept with a Congoid" thread, I'm a very jealous man. A green-eyed monster indeed (I have green eyes), I've never been overly fond of men I feel no degree of trust with talking to my partner. I'm even wary and suspicious when it's a man I know, because I've been, to put it in the common vernacular, fucked around far too often in the past, and usually with someone I knew.

    To me, possessiveness and jealousy (when combined with deep love, affection and respect) are the hallmarks of a person whom knows the value of their partner and wishes to preserve the relationship at all costs. I would rather be with a woman who was jealous and possessive than one who didn't care where I went or what I did. An interest in my comings and goings, and in what I do would be far more appealing than a woman who showed no interest in anything I did.
    A rebirth is coming, the Thulean Phoenix shall arise from the ashes of the Third Reich, empowered and inflamed by the wrongs levied against our people since the fall of German National Socialism. Prepare yourselves, Folk of Thule, our time is nigh.

    I understand where you are coming from there.
    Although I don't think possesiveness or jealousy are very nice feelings and can even ruin relationships, if I'm honest then I admit that the women whom I have truly loved in my life are those whom I've felt possesive of.
    The ones whom I didn't have these feelings for were ones that I didn't care for greatly anyway.

    And I agree, it is very flatering when a woman shows a certain amount of possesiveness. at least you know she genuinely cares.
    I think it's all a matter of degrees.
    A little bit of anything can be good. But too much can be the difference between a devoted partner and a psychotic lunatic!
