Sadistic people are more likely to seek vengeance

KATHMANDU — What drives some people to act out of vengefulness more than others? Obviously, sadistic people, who tend to derive pleasure from inflicting pain and suffering on others, according to a new study led by Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) psychology professor, David Chester.

Chester and co-author, C Nathan DeWall, a professor of psychology at the University of Kentucky, found that people who derive pleasure from hurting others and watching them suffer are more likely to seek revenge against those who have wronged them.

Sadism is the dominant personality trait that makes such types of people more likely than others to seek revenge, stated a study: “Personality Correlates of Revenge-Seeking: Multidimensional Links to Physical Aggression, Impulsivity, and Aggressive Pleasure” that will be published in a forthcoming edition of the journal Aggressive Behaviors.

“We wanted to paint a picture of the personality of the type of person who seeks revenge. We’re all slighted in our daily lives, but some of us seek revenge and some of us do not. So what kind of person is the person who seeks vengeance?” said Chester.

“The core of what we found is that the person who seeks revenge is a person who tends to enjoy it,” Chester added.

In the study, the team conducted three studies involving 673 students. They were asked to say whether they agree or disagree to a variety of statements, such as “Anyone who provokes me deserves the punishment that I give” and “If I’m wronged, I can’t live with myself until I revenge”.

For this study, Chester and DeWall started with the simple question: “Who are revenge-seekers—and what motivates them?” To answer this question, they conducted three separate experiments involving 673 students at the University of Kentucky.

Study participants filled out questionnaires designed to elucidate someone’s real-life behavior surrounding vengefulness.

“A lot of people don’t want to admit to having certain traits or tendencies that aren’t really savory or socially acceptable, so you have to ask questions in a very specific way,” Chester said in a statement.

“You’re not asking outright, ‘Are you a vengeful person?’ No one would say that they are. But instead, you can use a little bit of subterfuge and get some insight.”

KATHMANDU — A new survey of 3,836 people, has revealed exactly how long men and women of different ages ‘last’ in the bed.

According to a survey carried out by Saucydates.com, women across the world want sex to last 25 minutes and 51 seconds while for men, the answer is 25 minutes and 43 seconds.

Although both sexes would like to enjoy roughly the same amount of time getting engaged, the majority will be left disappointed as the survey also revealed that the average man in any country and of any age cannot get close to the ideal duration.

Interestingly, there was found to be a noticeable trend in the duration of sex increasing with age and then later decreasing.

The country with the best staying power was found to be the USA — with a top time of 17 minutes and five seconds for men aged 31. Canada is in secon position — with the Canadians are very close the America men and out perform everyone else until aged 28. They are also well above the international average.

Britons are not so long-lasting at a younger age but soon improve – by the age of 20 they are average and by their early 30s they are up with the best. Globally, there’s a noticeable trend in intercourse duration that increase with age and then later decreases.

Neighboring Indian men were found to be below the international average for the entire range surveyed. In India, men got better with age and by 50 years of age, came close to the rest of the world.

No Nepalis were included in the survey.

The United States, Canada, Australia and the United Kingdom tend to have a more relaxed attitude to casual sex than India.
