Pre-Historical Roles of Men and Women
It all stems back to cave-man days. Big shocker, right? Man hunts and gathers and the woman keeps the nest and bears the children—blah, blah, blah. What does that have to do with 2017? Everything, unfortunately. I guess its ingrained in our gender-based societal roles. Women seek material security and men seek power and recognition for the hunt.
What this means for 2017, is that women still inherently seek men who can financially care for them and their offspring. Men still hunt and gather, only instead of doing it in the wilderness, they do it at the office. It sounds archaic but as I said, it is an inherent need and not a primary basis for relationships. Gloria Steinem would likely cringe at the statement.
Not surprisingly, according to this academic study, narcissists tend to conform to conventional roles even more so than the average guy or gal. Why? Because it’s the easiest way to find acceptance on a large, social scale. They don’t like to stand out as being different or rebellious because that would not be conducive to securing their supply (victims). Instead, they conform to society’s gender role expectation to fit in and please their target.
