Chinese scientists conducted a number of psychological studies and were able to tell how financial income changes the requirements of men when choosing a companion.
The scientific staff invited 182 students to the experiment, among them 61 young men and 121 girls. Respondents were asked to imagine two situations, in the first case they should have felt rich, and in the second - poor. For each of the situations, respondents had to assess the level of relations with their second half on a nine-point scale.
To create a sense of the reality of wealth, scientists modeled the situation, in which the respondent felt himself to be a promising businessman, who has a high position in society and has a substantial material condition. However, the results of the survey showed that in this case the young man found himself unsatisfied with his partner and advanced higher demands on his partner. Scientists noted that the more virtual wealth a person had, the higher he had requirements. In a situation where the respondent did not have prosperity and is classified as poor, the requirements in the partner declined.
The situation was different for women. The level of prosperity did not change their requirements to the partner.
