Study Reveals Children Can Adapt To The Personalities Of The Peers

(PCM) A study conducted by Michigan State University psychology researchers and published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology claims that the more time children, specifically preschoolers spend around one another the more than they begin to mimic each other’s personality traits.

The study appears to reveal that children and their personalities, which can later transfer over to adulthood, are indeed shaped by environmental factors and not just genes.  It further proves that personality is not something that is naturally ingrained in an individual, but rather something that is adaptable and can be changed depending upon a child’s environment growing up.

The researchers who conducted the study spent the course of a year with two preschool classes and closely monitored their personality traits and social networking behavior. Through their research it was noted that children who chose play partners who were extroverted and hard-working appeared to pick up and mimic those traits over time. However, what was a bit odd was that children who chose play partners who were over anxious and overly frustrated did not appear to take on those particular traits.

According to co-researcher and associate professor of psychology, Emily Durbin the children are having more of an effect on each other’s personalities than people tend to realize!

New Dating App Spreads The Hate

(PCM) Forget the hearts and flowers when trying to get a date for Valentine’s Day, instead try bonding over things you mutually hate!  There is a new dating app on the way called “Hater” and rather than matching up users with their mutual loves, it instead matches users with things they mutually hate.

The app has users fill out a profile sharing their opinions about several topics and situations they find annoying ranging from politics and restaurant tipping to people who walk slowly or take too many selfies. It then matches you with someone who shares your mutual hatred for such things, therefore, at least in “Haters” opinion, creating a perfect match. You simply swipe down to hate, up to love, left to dislike or right to like.

The app was created by Brendan Alper who quit his job at Goldman Sachs to become a full-time comedian. He initially came up with the idea for the “Hater” app as a joke, but it seems to have spawned a ton of interest in the idea and decided it actually would be a genius idea for a dating app. It’s the idea of forgetting the warm and fuzzy and getting down and dirty right away.

The “Hater” app will officially launch on February 8th and is available in beta now for iOS, which times it perfectly for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday.  The Android version will be available later this spring. So be sure to spread the love …opps we mean hate!

Woman Received 65 Marriage Proposals And Rejected Them All!

(PCM) Many women would consider themselves lucky to receive just one special marriage proposal in a lifetime, but could you image receiving sixty-five? And then turning them all down! This is the story of Chicago socialite Mary Landon Baker, whose life seems like a TV movie waiting to happen. Landon reportedly received sixty-five marriage proposals during her lifetime and rejected each and every one of them.

Baker’s story was recently profiled by the New York Times and they claim that Baker first made her way to the headlines when she very publicly left her then fiance Allister McCormick at the altar. She was then labeled the “shy bride” by newspapers and reporters throughout the country, as shyness was the only diagnosis they could come up with to comprehend why Baker would walk away from marrying McCormick.

Of course in the years that followed her failed engagement to McCormick Baker’s behavior certainly didn’t border on shy. The Times reports that she was linked to men on multiple continents including an English Lord,an Irish prince, a well-to-do Spaniard, a Yugoslav diplomat, and the actor Barry Baxter.  Baker was referred to as a “dollar princess” a title which refers an heiress whose wealth makes her an eligible bachelorette all over the world.

It is said that when Baker passed away in 1961 at the age of 61 she had received at least sixty-five marriage proposals in the course of her lifetime from various suitors all over the globe. Baker’s life appears to be a great party where she was always the guest of honor. According to the Times she enjoyed attending pirate parties, tango-dancing with Romanian prices and sparkling, shiny gowns. When asked by reporters why his daughter refused to marry, Baker’s father financier Albert Baker replied that he daughter was having too delectable a time playing the field to want to settle down.

Baker herself told reporters, “I did not marry because I did not meet the right man at the right place at the right time.” She also went on to reveal, “I have never been in love”.  This seems very sad in a way, as despite the number of suitors throwing themselves at Baker, could they have been more in love with her money rather than her as a person. This definitely appears to be the case and it is truly a shame that Baker may have never gotten the chance to experience the feeling of true love in her lifetime, either than or she truly, truly valued her freedom!

(PCM) It has been said many times that there truly is an app for everything and we can certainly agree, especially now that it has been revealed that there is a new app that allows males to check their sperm count. We suppose there is not very much difference between this and the ovulation predictor apps geared towards women.

The app comes from the folks over at Medical Electronic System and is called Yo Home Sperm Test. The company is labeling the app as the world’s first sperm tester to be powered via a smartphone app. Men now have the ability to test their sperm counts from the comfort of home and the company has even created several hilarious how-to-videos to teach men just the way the app and device operate.

Analyzing how fast sperm is moving can be vital to determining fertility, so it is definitely something that men should want to keep an eye on especially if they are in the process of trying to start a family. The company claims that their app also allows men to avoid the awkwardness of going to the clinic to have their sperm count tested several times a month.

The testing process involves the app taking a video of the sperm under the microscope, and then completing a series of simple analyses from the clip. The test takes just two minutes to provide results. The app provides users with in-depth information about their result, which the company claims to be 97 per cent accurate.
