Men lose their minds speaking to pretty women?

It’s now established. Pretty women make men nervous, for a new study has revealed that guys can lose their minds while talking to pretty women. Interesting to note, right?

Researchers in the Netherlands have found that talking to an attractive woman really could make a man lose his mind, a finding they claim may have implications for the performance of guys who flirt with women in the workplace.

According to them, the reason may be that men use up so much of their brain function or cognitive resources trying to impress pretty women, they have little left for other tasks.Women, however, are not affected by chatting to a handsome man — this may be simply because men are programmed by evolution to think more about mating opportunities, the study found.

In their study, the researchers recruited some 40 male students. Each one performed a standard memory test where they had to observe a stream of letters and say as fast as possible if each one was the same as the one before last.
The volunteers then spent seven minutes chatting to male or female members of the research team before repeating the test.

The results showed men were slower and less accurate after trying to impress the women.The more they fancied them, the worse their score. So, guys should take precaution.

Right?
