Women are attracted to psychopathic men because of their confident and smooth-talking ways, according to scientists. When women were told to rate men on short videos they made, researchers found the best-ranked men were also those who scored highest on psychopath tests. The disturbing tendencies made men more likely to be confident, to be at ease with themselves, or to 'know the right things to say,' the scientists said. Psychopathic men were found to be charming – or at least capable of pretending to be – so they could get what they wanted, which made them attractive. Patrick Bateman in American Psycho (pictured, Cristian Bale as him in the movie) is a psychopath who is a seductive murderer 'Psychopathic men have a personality style that makes them appear attractive to women in dating encounters,' said PhD student Kristopher Brazil, from Brock University in Canada. He told the psychology news website Psypost: 'This may be because they are extra confident or feel at ease … [Read more...] about Women really DO love a bad boy: Men with psychopathic traits are attractive because they’re confident and ‘know the right things to say’, study claims
