The researchers suggest that this may be due to traditional male sex roles, which require men to be assertive and proactive in the mating domain, skills that may not come as easily to shy guys.
As the researchers note, this finding is consistent with the idea that highly popular people are thought to be more careful in their choices while unpopular people are thought to be more indiscriminative (see Penke et al., 2007).Sociosexuality and shyness did a better job predicting popularity in this speed dating context than the personality traits extraversion and neuroticism, which are correlated with sociosexuality and shyness, respectively (sociosexuality with extraversion, shyness with neuroticism).The researchers relate this finding to the bandwidth-fidelity trade-off found in personality research, in which "narrower traits that are tailored to specific situational contexts and behaviours often outperform broader traits in predictive power, whereas broader traits often outperform narrower traits if the goal is to predict many different behaviours in many different contexts." once physical attributes were already taken into account, and also provided additional prediction of popularity above and beyond physical attractiveness.They also found an age effect: the older the women, the less choosy she was and the older the man, the more choosy he was.This is consistent with age-related context-dependent mating strategies.
