    Is there a truth in the statement " Men literally get dumber around attractive women."

    Some people exists to prove this statement. But, It won't happen all the time. Because, people may look at attractive women, and its not necessary to be get dumb at that time.

    I will be very honest. Some of my "dumbest actions" during my lifetime took place when I was surrounded by attractive women.
    So you may have pointed out the truth.

    Good Morning Sundeep......Your question made me chuckle.  I think you may be on to something here, my dear friend.  I also believe this can easily go both ways.  Women may become less than reserved and intelligent when around attractive men.  Yes?
    This is pretty much a "human nature" type of situation, don't you think Sundeep?
    Beauty and an air of confidence about a person is usually quite attractive.  When a man sees an especially lovely vision of the female persuasion, the immediate reaction is instinctual.  He becomes focused and/or transfixed on this pleasant vision of loveliness and the ego kicks in.  ("I must impress this woman and bring attention to myself")
    Most of the time in these cases a person becomes anxious or nervous and simply behaves in a forced, uncharacteristic way.  He may find himself not thinking before speaking or feeling clumsy and simply doing "dumb" things without meaning to.
    This might just be, because the male hormones overpower him, as well as perhaps bringing out the "little boy," in him who wants to show off.  LOL.
    By the way, Sundeep, 90% of the time, an attractive woman is well aware she has caused this poor man to trip all over himself.  If she is wise, she will help to make him comfortable rather than embarrass him.
    After all, the initial reaction is just a natural reflex......and this man is not dumb at all.  He's merely been momentarily struck by Cupid's arrow......

      Oh my ! You really take pains to answer the question. Yes, it is very well explained and quite logical too.

      It quite liked " 90% of the time, an attractive woman is well aware......."

      Thanks for your intelligent comments

      You're welcome, Sundeep.  I've been paying close attention to human nature all these decades and I see no reason to hold back from "telling it like it is!"     smile.

    Generally speaking this happens more often with younger inexperienced or immature men.
    The more dating experience men have the less awkward they feel when interacting with women regardless of their appearance.
    The same is also true for young women who find a particular man to be "hot" or extremely good looking.  They've been known to stammer or say something they wish they hadn't or even not respond at all.
    Both genders are guilty of this.

      From the answers I have read here I found the respondents dashingscorpio, Ericdierker and chaitanyasaivb very matured and this is admirable.
      However, I have also seen people getting more immature - rather childish and obvious in their behavior.

    I sure used to so I think it is true. Perhaps maybe also true "Old men get less dumb around attractive women"

    In most cases, it is the truth.

    No one needs to remind the guy to behave himself.

    The only few times when the reverse is the case is if the guy is quite experienced with women, doesn't not care about first impression, is completely blind, or is just so gay as in G.A.Y!

      True! A guy who doesn't care oftentimes makes women curious! Stick a woman in a room with 5 men. Have 4 of them on their knees extending their heart & the 5th guy sits in a corner ignoring her while sipping a drink. That's one she wants to know!:

      Of course! It's just one of the oldest and infallible tricks of getting them girls!

    I think it is true in many cases.  I think it is why, as a woman ages, she is listened to less and less even though, just like a man, she has likely grown as a person as well as in knowledge and in wisdom.  When I was young, I could burp and men thought I was being brilliant.  But now I could talk about astrophysics or precision machining and I'd get the dreaded "that's nice dearie" sort of responses if any of them noticed I was in the room at all.

    I think it has little to do with our natures and much to do with our cultures.  Women would probably do the same thing if our culture both allowed and rewarded the behavior in women like it does in men.  I've encountered plenty of men from different cultures who didn't seem to get stupid around pretty women at all. 

    I'd like to mention I've noticed many gay men seem to get just as stupid around gorgeous men as their heterosexual counterparts get around gorgeous women.
