Forget the theory that blondes have more fun, a new study has found they’re more aggressive than brunettes and redheads – because they live in a me-me-me bubble and are used to getting their own way.
The theory is, blondes get more attention from men, so believe they’re more ‘special’ than redheads and brunettes. And, according to this study, ‘special’ people are more likely to use anger to reach their goals – and get defensive if they don’t (blondes up in arms, don’t shoot the messenger; we’re only relaying the evidence).
And it doesn’t matter if your collar doesn’t match your cuffs, as the study also found, even those who dye their hair soon take on the natural blonde's aggressive streak. 'We expected blondes to feel more entitled than other young women,’ said Aaron Sell, who led the study at the University of California. 'What we did not expect to find was how much more warlike they are than their peers.'
Though this writer is a blonde herself, in the interest of fair reporting, it's worth noting only 156 women were interviewed for this study. And it was carried out in California – where blondes rule supreme.
So, let’s open the survey to the Grazia vote. Are blondes really more ‘warrior-like’ than those with darker tresses, or is this just another hair hue stereotype?
