    Factoring androgens - based on biology and on the effects of male induced hormones that cause symptoms such as aggressiveness and whatnot, can that be enough of a justification to assume sexually-driven males are perceived as "more confident?"

      I would guess they are more "goal oriented" and possibly more "cunning" in ways to manipulate the thoughts of those they are zoning in on in order to gain their trust. You can't spell confident without the word "con". smile

      Most "players" and "smooth talkers" have an air of confidence and arrogance that many people find attractive or alluring on some level.
      This is especially true if one lacks experience with these types or they are very trusting of others. It also helps if the male is considered handsome!

        You can be sexy without those handicaps and cheating ways.

        Yes good sex helps, like good food.

          Castlepaloma, He didn't say those traits were sexy.
          He was asking if men (driven by sexual desire) tend to be more "confident" when it comes to approaching an object of their affection presumably.

            Men driven by sexual desire depends on degrees. If men have a sex addiction, this can unbalance your life, like any addiction.

            Men or persons are bio-organism and sexual being first. About 98% of Men masturbate because it's healthy. Most people do not get enough good healthy sex. Birds do it , bees do it, lets all do it, let all fall in love.

      It's funny because I see aggressive behavior and that type of 'what not' as you describe it as signs of a lack of confidence.

      I agree with Castle, too.

        Live to learn, I suspect it all depends on how one defines "aggressive behavior". Since he is alluding to the fact that it is connected to "confidence" he may view "aggressive behavior" as being a man who has an "extrovert" outgoing personality who does not hesitate to strike up a conversation. Does being horny overcome shyness? I doubt it! smile

        There are probably lots of sexually driven men who are quick to call an escort service or venture on to porn websites.
        Confidence comes with achieving one minor success after another.
        One who accumulates successful experiences becomes more confident!

          Extroverted outgoing personalities do often appear to me to be insecure. I used to work with a guy that really fits into exactly what he is describing and you are; and I felt that the guy would have benefited from therapy.

      I would say, no. Often these types are not confident at all. They end up acting macho, because of their lack of confidence. Like in the movie, What happens in Vegas, with Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher: Ashton's character needs to have (lots of, with different) sex because it fuels his self esteem … He (the character) was actually low on self-esteem due to an overly critical father.

      ( I know a guy with a lot of sexual energy. He is not overly confident or aggressive, in fact has a hidden lack of aggression. He can pretend otherwise just fine, I notice.)

        I hope you aren't getting your ideas on human behavior from movies.

          big_smile !… art follows life, I am assuming ...
          maybe wrongly! smile
          But, usually, even (script) writers have a thing or two to say about observed reality.

            I suggest scientific studies instead of movies.

              - maybe the writer did base his premise on scientific study!
              - who are you to say it is so far off?
              - where is YOUR back-up info?

                I haven't read any scientific studies on this subject. So I have no idea. But I know I certainly don't base my ideas on what I see in movies.

                    Because movies don't often reflect reality.

    Do Sexually Driven Males Tend to be More Confident People Than Average?
      Some nerdy types are quite sexually driven, as many women eventually find out at one point or another …

    ...where I live near JPL, I know a lot of happily married women. Their husbands, (who work at Caltech and JPL) do not appear to be more confident, but the wives seem happy enough!

    But now that I think about it, maybe the nerdy types ARE actually more confident.
    How can one tell?

    What is the gauge of true confidence?

    Yes. If you are a wild animal you hunt or nibble according to the dictates of inner instinct. If you are a domesticated animal, you wait for your allotment of hay, grains or slop. If you are a pet, you sit cutely and look up with sad, hungry eyes.
    If you are a human animal, you pretend you are really something, cuz if you don't, you won't eat at all.

      Most of the animals on this planet are dead over the last 50 years. Humans must of not been taking care of the animals that well.
