In one experiment, just telling a man he would be observed by a female was enough to hurt his psychological performance.

A 2009 study demonstrated that after a short interaction with an attractive woman, men experienced a decline in mental performance.

Stop hiring men -problem solved.

Interacting with women can leave my cognitively impaired?

Interesting.

On the plus side, I've nothing to lose.

Not news: Women are, on average, so stupid that the stress of anticipating needing to explain everything to them instead of just doing it causes men to have a decrease in their mental performance. We have to set aside a portion of our mental capacity to act independently of the part actually getting things done to act as a barrier between the stupidity and us. "Yes, ma'am. If you cry at your car, it won't help it start up. What am I doing? I'm hooking up jumper cables. Why? Because your battery is dead.... Because you left your lights on.... No, it doesn't "just work". Oh dear! It looks like your make-up got smudged. You better go sit in the car and fix it in the mirror! Don't forget to close the door, hon! Finally, peace and quiet."

I have worked with all sorts of people.
I must say that I am ABSOLUTELY distracted by large boobs.
2 female coworkers made me tottally retarded.
The smaller a woman's breasts, the less distracted I am.
It never mattered to me whether or not a woman was my immediate supervisor.
At least, I don't think it did.

I wonder if this is a part of why, traditionally, men resist working for a female boss. If being watched by a woman makes it hard to think, this would be one more bit of unpleasantness to add to the picture.

So much is explained. I know women are watching me: I work in an office that is about 85% women, run by a CEO who also happens to be a woman.

Of course, I may just be naturally dumb...

i think this study is ignorant to the fact that nerves can make someone appear stupid before any one awe-inspiring, not only in front of pretty women.

I stopped getting nervous in front of pretty women sometime after i met the lady that became my wife.

/ still has the normal stupidity though

FTFA: A 2009 study demonstrated that after a short interaction with an attractive woman, men experienced a decline in mental performance. A more recent study suggests that this cognitive impairment takes hold even w hen men simply anticipate interacting with a woman who they know very little about.

The solution, therefore, is to be drunk all the time so that you and others can't quite tell whether your mental impairment is a result of having the hots for someone (that you may have just spoken to or were thinking about) or because you're sauced out of your gourd.

You can "observe" me anytime you like.

I Service lab equipment in hospitals, so my work is observed by females all the time. It never throws me off, except for this one that liked to invade my space, and stand with her crotch about 1 foot from my face while I was working, and talk to me.

A

woman, man will tend to imagine of something attractive that he wishes to impress.

Specificity can break that rule. Joan rivers, you, Margaret Thatcher, not so much on the whole impeding psychological performance. May limit sexual performance though, quite likely in fact.

I mean, I know you want a level playing field, but it's just not going to happen that way.

It's amazing how many sad, sad "men" will grovel at the feet of a supposed internet woman and definite attention whore such at Grables'Daughter. You have a whole internet of tits to jerk off to, yet you choose to pine over one who'd give you nothing just because she wrote a sentence on the internet. You need not be ashamed of yourselves because the rest of us have enough shame for your actions to spread around for generations. I am disappointed in my own species more and more every day. Some day, a real rain will come and wash all this scum off the streets.

Yeah as soon as you start thinking about anyone you'd like to impress your nerves can start going haywire- it doesn't have to be the ladyfolk you are attracted to.
Albeit thinking of attractive ladyfolk (or guyfolk if you swing that way) comes with its own unique physical affectations, unless you actually do get a hard-on over a lecturer droning on about the properties of naked singularities in relation to Intermediate-mass black holes.

While I am not a participant, I don't understand how a man can't understand why other men would not want to get naked breasts from someone with whom they have had some sort of interaction instead of just downloading someone who won't even know they downloaded. I presume you are heterosexual. If not, then I guess it's a breast-love thing you aren't getting. If you are hetrosexual, think of it this way: even in this hyper-anonomized environment, men are still most interested in a (presumably actual) female with whom they are having an interaction. I think that's actually a good sign. No, I take that back: a GREAT sign. It means they are still interested in talking to humans more than just images of humans. Being human still counts for something. No, it doesn't make up for actual dates with live humans in front of you, but I view these two as being separate and non-dependent on each other. You can like going on dates and still be interested in pictures of breasts from an interactive anonymous female who gets off showing them to anonymous strangers. Everyone wins. Hey, and you win too: you don't have to participate!

No, I don't wear armor while keep tally of maidens I have saved.
