When it comes to seduction, a lot of it has to do with your place among peers, your social status. High status is attractive. Many men think high status is about how much money they have, but that’s not what it’s about. It’s a social quality, it’s about the way you interact with others and the confidence you radiate.
Scientists (I just love these guys, don’t you) made this crazy experiment.
They wanted to know how high social status impacts health.
Since they couldn’t really pull this off with human beings, they did the experiment with baboons. Baboons are pretty amazing monkeys, highly intelligent (and they have a lot of sex, but that’s not the point here).
And they found that higher status baboons heal faster when they are sick or wounded.
You might say: “Well, of course!” But it’s not really that easy to tell.
Because higher status baboons also expend more energy and have higher levels of testosterone. And one of the things that testosterone does is to suppress the immune system!
But higher status baboons got sick less often, had better healing rates when they got sick, and even their wounds from fights healed faster.
And of course… they got a lot of girls!
Just one more reason to learn to play the social game and be the alpha male. We’re social animals, and if you’re socially good you have all it takes to have a good quality of life.
