Who doesn't love the impressive social conclusions made every day by the ingenius data minings of Hunch? Every quantitative-data-loving individual should, and I'm pointing my finger at you, weirdo blog reader checking this post out for the graphs. (We have the same disease, don't worry.)
And what better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than to expose our societal approaches to love!
And the full evaluation of the 2300 users who responded to this question is AWESOME! If you ever really thought that v-day is a little female-biased, surprise! More women Love It and more men are Bitter About It. More people in relationships Love It, more people without children are Bitter About It.
I hope this well-known stereotype is a result of a small sampling size:
Out of all Hunch.com users who responded that their EQ is lower than their IQ and played Hunch’s professions topic, 75 percent agree that being a scientist is a good profession for them. Science-related professions traditionally require a high IQ and aren’t as dependent on the social skills related to EQ. Scientific pursuits also appeal to the skepticism embraced by Bitters (which, as we’ll see, extends beyond attitudes about love). The “lower EQ than IQ” users are also less likely to agree that events planner or artist are appropriate professions for them. Both of these professions emphasize EQ-related skills such as networking and self-expression. Bitters are also stronger in mathematical aptitude than lovers.
Thanks, Internet, for the v-day present! Although you know I like flowers better.
