The short answer is not usually. However, in this video we break down the science behind situations where opposites do attract and delve into deep detail as to why certain trends in partner selection take place. In this video, we touch upon gold diggers, mixed-race relationships, cougars, and hypergamy, and use data to explain why some of these features are present as phenomena in the dating world.

Also, we touch upon animals as well, and explain the circumstances between different species and sub-groups of animals and why they engage in their unique reproductive behaviors.

Despite all these findings, however, assortative mating still is much more common than disassortative mating and we conclude that opposites, indeed, do not attract unless exceptional circumstances are present.

Evil (a term used frequently in this video for dramatic effect) can be harmful, as in the case of serial killers, and can be harmless, as seen in recreational engagements that are considered strange to others. In other situations, acts that would be considered evil in everyday life are permissible in certain contexts, such as fighting/killing in war.

When evil acts are plainly executed, however, such as in the case of pedophilia, underlying reasons as to why the act is considered evil exists.
In this video, I attempt to uncover some reasons as to why people do certain things that are curious, bad, or good...

As mentioned, the term Evil is used excessively for dramatic effect in this video and for entertainment purposes. In reality, things that are considered evil arise for very specific reasons which are sometimes not so easy to discern.

Reproductive strategies are something people rarely put much thought into. We observe and acknowledge certain patterns that occur in nature among animals, but when it comes to humans we do not hear much about distinct reproductive patterns.

R/k selection theory or fast life slow life history is an ecological concept that suggests that certain species have adapted to different reproductive patterns as a result of the demands of their environment.

Fast life history, or r strategy involves high mating frequencies, less care for offspring and shorter lifespans while slow life history involves the opposite.

When observing humanity, we can see certain fast life/slow life history trends based on the raw results of one's lifestyle.

This video takes a look into the varying reproductive strategies in humanity, and attempts to encapsulate the evolutionary costs and benefits of either lifestyle.

By the end of this video, one should be able to examine themselves and their habits and gain a general idea of where they are on the r/k spectrum.

Humans are a group-selected species, which means we thrive best when we work together as a collective unit to build a prospering community or civilization. Because we are so social, we have natural adaption processes that occur which allow us to live more in tune with those around us. In our various communities, our auto adaptation mechanism causes us to copy the actions, ideals, and even the beliefs of those in power and those we respect.

If the ideals are conducive to a way of life that increases our general social and reproductive fitness, then the adaptation naturally is in the best interest of the individual adapting to the community. However, sometimes what one may consider good and acceptable is not always actually in the best interest of the individual nor the community.

If a person adapts to a system that contradicts their reproductive fitness, as well as the fitness of the general group they belong to, then adapting to that particular group becomes something that can be detrimental to the individual.

The social epistasis amplification model illustrates not only the potential negative effect that can take place on the individual level, but also on the group level. This model, devised by intelligence researcher Michael Woodley of menie, was inspired by John Calhoun’s mouse Utopia experiment in the 1960’s.

With the new discoveries made after reconstruction of the original models, we can gain a much clearer picture of the way our genes express themselves, and how they can be affected or altered by interactions with other phenotypes.

We have all seen the type of person that just doesn't seem to get along with the people around him. The outcast, the rebel, the deviant who simply doesn't get along with others is present in nearly every corner of society. Maybe this person is you? If so, have you ever wondered why you just don't get along with the people around you? This video attempts to conjecture the reasons as to why some people adapt differently from the norms they are presented with in their native environment. I put forth some principals related to the findings of Charles Darwin and mention some examples of cases in which children have adapted to the ways of particular animals, such as Daniel Yudin, otherwise known as "The Bird Boy" and "Daniel the Goat Boy." Other channels such as The School of Life and Thoughty2 have touched on topics similar to this in their videos. In this video essay, I attempt to put forth my own unique interpretation on the subject, and look to solve the riddle of why weird people exist and what are the causes of people being different than their peers.
