Divorce Affair

What kind of people are more prone to adultery? Here's what the expert think

Are you prone to adultery? Experts reveal seven personality types most prone to affair, such as narcissistic people, people of impulsive character or adventurers

American psychiatrist, dr. Kenneth Paul Rosenberg, who has been researching human sexuality and relationship problems for more than 20 years, defined in his research what personalities are most commonly associated with adultery.

His research has shown that seven types of characters are indeed more likely to be more unfaithful than others.

The psychiatrist says that his patients are of all ages and different religious or socio-economic backgrounds: from the so-called. millennials who grew up with things that previous generations did not have the opportunity to meet, e.g. online pornography, first-date sex or friendships with ‘privileges’, to middle-aged men and women in crisis who fear that their chances of meeting new partners are dwindling.

Three factors that affect adultery:

1. Brain - neurological structures and processes in the brain

2. Psychology - a mind we have developed through formative experiences that 'impress' thoughts about the world, our place in it and how you see your sex / love life

3. Culture - an environment in which we live with different perceptions of sex, love and adultery, which affect your opinions and opportunities for infidelity.

Research has shown that whether we engage in adultery has to do with a person’s environment and psyche. The most significant environmental factor is the fact that we can cheat: the easier it is, the more likely we are to engage in infidelity, according to that well-known ‘opportunity makes a thief’. Cheating is not limited to immoral or uncharacteristic people, the psychiatrist adds.

These seven personalities are most prone to infidelity

When it comes to the psychological profile of cheaters, the biggest factor that drives them to love adventures is the feeling that they are right or that they deserve to cheat. Research and clinical experience have identified certain personality types that show a propensity for adultery:

Narcissistic people - feel self-sufficient putting their needs first

People without empathy - they don't care about their partner's feelings

Egomanics - overestimate their abilities, especially sexual power, and need confirmation of their love abilities

Impulsive people - make decisions without thinking about the consequences

Adventurers - excited by 'hunting'

People who are afraid of bonding - go from relationship to relationship so as not to bond with someone

Self-destructive or masochistic people - enjoy being in bad relationships so as not to be alone
