Study reveals: people with these characteristics are most likely to be betrayed by their partner

Can you have any idea whether your partner will cheat you in the future? Psychology says there are some signs that suggest that your partner is considering infidelity as a possibility, or even that he is already practicing it - but that is something that cannot be predicted or known before it happens, not true?

To cheat on is the worst betrayal of a partner (aside from, perhaps, secretly watching new episodes of the series you're watching together), but flinging is so common that research has tried to decipher as many facets of the phenomenon as possible: the frequency with which it happens, the characteristics of a relationship that can increase the likelihood of cheating, the types of infidelity that exist - and even the characteristics of people who, statistically and psychologically, are most likely to become "victims".

Studies traditionally focus more on the "perpetrators" than the "victims": on their motivations, their personality type and even on the most deceptive zodiac sign.

Mahambrey wanted to know if there are certain aspects of a person's personality that make them more prone to being horned by their partners. In the study, the participants were asked how aptly they describe 26 different traits of the so-called "Big Five": openness (adventurous, curious, intelligent), conscientiousness (responsible, hardworking, organized), Extraversion (friendly, sociable), compatibility (loving, caring, understanding) and Neuroticism (bad mood, nervous).

Psychologist Gary W. Lewandowski of The Psychology of Relationships states, “While it is generally desirable to be nice, in the context of cheating it is possible that a nicer partner encourages the cheater to do soby making him feel that he is more easily forgiven for his transgression. A low conscientiousness but can also cause problems. As the research shows, having an unreliable, immature, or lazy partner could add to the stress and conflict in dealing with everyday tasks such as paying bills, doing household chores, attending work events, personal commitments, and so on. Neither of these factors justifies cheating, but other research shows that when people described their partner as ruthless, they also complained of marital problems. "
