Study finds women are more controlling and aggressive towards their partners than men

  • Psychologists found more women can be classed as ‘intimate terrorists’
  • This means they routinely abuse partners both physically and mentally
  • Within partner relationships, women are just as controlling as men
  • They are also more likely to be physically aggressive, the study claimed
  • It suggests 'intimate partner violence' may not be motivated by patriarchal values, as previously thought

Women may be known as the gentler sex, but the stereotype is a myth, according to a new study.

Psychologists claim that women are more likely than men to be controlling and aggressive relationship ‘terrorists’.

The scientists found that far from the popular notion of women tending to be victims of ‘intimate partner violence’ (IPV) - physical, sexual, or psychological harm - they were more physically aggressive to their partners than men.

‘This was an interesting finding. Previous studies have sought to explain male violence towards women as rising from patriarchal values, which motivate men to seek to control women’s behaviour, using violence if necessary,’ said Dr Elizabeth Bates, from the university.

‘This study found that women demonstrated a desire to control their partners and were more likely to use physical aggression than men.

But insisting your partner listen to you during a game he's watching and you're not, unless it's really freaking house on fire important, is pretty rude I think. Not to mention futile chuckle.gif

After my first serious relationship, seems the women that showed interest in me were either weak willed and fragile, or aggressive bitchy types.

If you have one difficult to deal with, they have to respect you or you are doomed.

A combination of indifference, not caring, being tough but reliable, and silent serenity seems to have worked for me in the past. Careful with the seemingly fragile they are the ultimate manipulators.

You want control in a relationship fellas? Be completely ok with being alone possibly forever first and don't bs yourself or them.

Nobody likes to be controlled by their partner. I really don't know what causes that need in a relationship, but ultimately fear I would guess.

What works for me and my wife is low expectations and I'm serious.

No romance novel bullshittery, no needless drama, freedom and trust.

She makes me remember to feel, I protect her.

And I've been both the recessive and dominant in the past in relationships. IMO one needs to take the lead with some or most things.

Recall the woman I almost married, passionate, extremely talented, had a calling in life, almost robotic with emotional stuff like Data sometimes. No one could tame her, she needed to be let be with someone who could handle it, did not take shït personal, and had their own life. She will call the shots with whoever she is with, maybe not the petty battles, where to go, what to buy the usual but in the direction absolutely and everything of importance will ultimately fall her way no matter who the man is.

The woman I married needed balance, a leader, someone tough enough to protect her, and someone she could trust to build a family with.

I think its bs that there is not a leader nor dominant one, there needs to be one.

No I don't think there needs to be a leader, that just depends on the people involved I think. Mutual respect and companionship works for me. Oh and humor of course.

Humor and respect are paramount, maybe I've just seen those who want someone to protect them, and have been durable enough to handle the ones with massive callings and will power.

Maybe that's just my story and most people are somewhere in between.

One thing for certain, you've got to trust, respect, and enhance the other. Not limit, make stagnant, nor castrate the other.

I've enjoyed both types of relationships for different reasons, and really I did not mind taking a back seat to the one with callings in life, I loved her for them and supported them. Whoever she married I hope is comfortable with that and is tough enough to accept it.

Or even better, let's hope she found someone equally passionate to share her callings.
