The Law of Attraction: What is Your Criteria?
The very concept of the law of attraction is subject to a wide range of debate. Theorists don’t confine to a particular trait in human beings. While defining the law of attraction we cannot confine ourselves to the physical properties of human beings. Human attraction is much more than the apparent features that form the very basis of human attraction. Today theorists are involved in in-depth research and testing to define human attraction and how this analysis of attraction significantly differs by gender.
We often wonder why we get attracted to only certain persons and not to others. The law of attraction is worth speculating over. Whenever we study human attraction, we should always take into consideration that there is a certain amount of psychological attraction involved.
Similarities Attract or Opposites Attract?
There are two contradicting theories that have been subscribed to by the general public about human attraction. The first theory of the law of attraction advocates that people with certain traits always get attracted to people having similar traits. The second theory of human attraction advocates that people get attracted to people with traits just opposite to their character. In short, it is called “opposites attract”. The scientific community believes these two theories of the law of attraction are interwoven.
Ideal versus Real:
Clinical researchers have tried hard to prove that human beings are attracted to people with whom they identify their ideal selves. An ideal self is always different from the one we presently occupy and also contains traits of our present self, i.e. the self we carry. So when we identify some traits of our ideal self in another person we automatically get attracted. This explanations of the law of attraction is very popular in clinical psychology and also to understand why human beings find another person appealing and desirable.
Men and women have different bases of getting attracted to each other. An optimistic mental state, good health, fertility issues and a well balanced character are of the basic laws of attraction.
Men and women have different criteria for mate selection. Security and stability are always an issue for women when they are looking for their ideal partner. Physical beauty and other desirable features are the main criteria for males. Age and monetary stability also become the most sought after traits among men and women while looking for their ideal partner. These criteria are prevalent in more than 37 cultures and are considered to be global traits while defining the laws of attraction.
