Dr David Buss, a sociologist at the University of Texas, researched 107 couples and identified the key personality traits of adulterers – particularly women adulterers. The key indicators would include positive responses to the following:

  • Do they spend a lot of time looking in the mirror?
  • Do they arrive late for meetings and for dinner?
  • Do they forget to thank friends?
  • Do they leave the door open and the lights on when leaving a room?
  • Do they play practical jokes even if they hurt other people?
  • Are they unsympathetic if they pass an animal killed in a road accident?
  • Do they interrupt other people when they are talking?

The personality traits more accurately predicted potential infidelity in the group than social status or how the couples got on sexually.
