Abstract:The aim of the research was to investigate whether there are differences between incel-men and non-incel-men regarding their perception of women’s mating preferences. It was expected that incel-men compared to non-incel-men rank physical attractiveness higher regarding the mating preferences of women, whereas non-incel-men compared to incel-men rank interpersonal warmth higher regarding the mating preferences of women. The results demonstrated that there was a difference between incel-men and non-incel-men regarding their perception of women's mating preferences. Self-identified incel-men compared to non-incel-men scored significantly higher on physical attractiveness as a presumed mating preference of women and self-identified non-incel-men were significantly more likely to presume that women's preferences were related to interpersonal warmth. Furthermore, the same results were found for researcher-identified incel-men and non-incel-men for interpersonal warmth, but not for physical attractiveness.
