goo Ranking took a look at features of guys who mistakenly think they are cool, a follow-up of sorts to last month’s look at women who aren’t as cute as they think.
From the 5th to the 7th of September 2012 1,006 members of the goo Research monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. 53.4% of the sample were female, 10.5% in their teens, 13.7% in their twenties, 26.6% in their thirties, 27.6% in their forties, 11.7% in their fifties, and 9.9% aged sixty or older. Note that the score in the results refers to the relative number of votes for each option, not a percentage of the total sample.
I notice that the women had 30 features yet the men only manage 15, although I don’t know if there’s any significance in that. Fortunately, I’m only guilty of number 14.
