Proven by Science: Jealousy CAN Make You Blind

An experiment by psychology professors Steven Most and Jean-Philippe Laurenceau confirmed that some women are indeed "blinded by jealousy":

Psychologists sat 25 young couples down next to each other at adjacent computer screens, with the men asked to rate how attractive pictures of landscapes were to them.

The women meanwhile, were asked to spot photographs of landscapes – the "targets" – amid rapid streams of images, which also included the occasional gruesome or graphic picture.

However, halfway through the experiment the women were told that their men were now rating images of women for attractiveness.

Later the women were asked how uneasy that made them feel.

Steven Most and Jean-Philippe Laurenceau, professors of psychology at the University of Delaware in the US, found that those women who admitted to being most jealous were the ones who most failed to spot the landscape images.
