The Australian may have the answer to why that good looking blonde you've been going out with gets so cranky - 'Warlike' blondes get what they want - study.
IT'S official - blondes do have more fun. According to a study by the University of California, that's because blondes are more confident and aggressive, even displaying "warlike" tendancies to get their own way in life.
The study of 156 US students showed that because blondes believe they are more attractive to men than redheads or brunettes, they "feel more entitled" to getting their own way.
"What we did not expect to find was how much more warlike they are than their peers on campus," study leader Aaron Sell told UK tabloid The Sun. "Many blondes exist in a kind of bubble where they have been treated better than other people for so long, they may not even realise they are treated like a princess."
His research indicated that the more "special" people felt, judged by physical strength for men and looks for women, the more likely they were to get angry as a strategy to reach social goals.
