While the previous Anxiety Survey indicated that it would kill most women to sever ties with their parents, the numbers here indicate that more women (44.3%) are likely to cheat on their romantic partners when compared to men (39.7%).
More women (70.2%) may also lie to their parents, as opposed to 63.1% men. At 70.1%, however, more men indulge in activities likely to be “disliked” by their parents than women (66.5%).
Nevertheless, men (82%) appeared to be more determined than women (81.1%) when it comes to “begging, borrowing and stealing” to get what they “really want”.
Even when it comes to doggedly pursuing something “that benefits them”, more men (83.1%) are likely to go for it than women (81%). Both sexes are equally intent on fast-tracking their desires, stating that they want “everything, and fast”.
Men are more likely to treat friends well, with as many as 79.8% saying they’ll do anything to gain their approval – as opposed to 78.7% women. At 73.6%, males are also more likely to overlook rules and violate traffic regulations than women (62.2%).
