Queendom.com’s latest study indicates that when it comes to being disciplined and making healthy lifestyle changes, men tend to have a stronger resolve. Women may have a little more difficulty staying away from temptation and sticking to healthy habits this year.
Montreal, Qc (PRWEB) January 04, 2013
Queendom.com, a pioneer in online personality tests, has released its newest study on willpower and the ability to keep resolutions. Queendom’s research using their Willpower Test reveals that women may have a little more difficulty staying away from temptation and sticking to healthy habits this year.
It’s an unmistakable trend: the sudden, overwhelming influx of new faces at the gym. Parking? None. Empty locker space? Gone. Favorite cardio machine? Overtaken by someone who clearly doesn’t realize that she’s using it backwards. Gym regulars know how this scenario will play out though. So they’ll swallow their frustration, hop on a squeaky stationary bike, and wait out this typical, two-month trend until most of these new people give up on their New Year’s resolutions. The question is, what turns a gym newbie to a gym regular? And which gender is more likely to stick to their health resolutions?
Queendom.com assessed 230 men and women on their level of willpower when it comes to keeping resolutions to stay healthy. For everything from food to exercise, Queendom researchers attempted to determine which of the two groups was more likely to give into temptation…delicious, lazy, leftover turkey temptation. Queendom’s study reveals that men outscored women on willpower 65 to 61 (on a scale from 0 to 100). Women, however, seemed to be prepared for defeat, as only 46% of them rated their willpower as “good,” compared to 61% of men. According to Queendom’s research:
“Change and self-improvement isn’t an easy process, especially after spending the holidays indulging on chocolate-covered this or deep-fried that,” says Dr. Ilona Jerabek, president of PsychTests. “Our research shows that neither men nor women whole-heartedly embrace lifestyle change. But with the New Year comes a great deal of introspection, and we know that we have to bite the bullet and either adopt or drop some habits. This is where the women in our sample seemed to struggle. This doesn’t mean that they can’t successfully achieve their resolutions – they just may take a little more time and need more support to get there. So don’t despair if you fall of the healthy bandwagon and want to give up one month into your resolutions…what matters most is that you get back up again.”
