Whats your Deepest Desire.

What you say you want in a mate may not always match up with what you really want, especially when it comes to how sexy your potential partner should be, a new study has found.
Researchers at Northwestern University and Texas A&M University found that no matter how much people say they are looking for someone smart, who they can trust and laugh with, they have an unconscious desire to get a sexually attractive partner.The researchers have even developed a quirky word test to figure out how important physical attraction is to a person, on an unconscious level.

 "People will readily tell you what they value in a romantic partner," study researcher Eli Finkel of Northwestern University was quoted as saying by Live-Science . "But study after study shows that those preferences don't predict whom daters are actually attracted to when they meet flesh-and-blood partners."
Researchers asked a group of students to complete computerbased word-association task, assessing how much they associate physical attractiveness with an ideal partner. As words flashed on the screen, the participants had to pick those they associated with positive feelings. Depending on how strongly they felt about physical attractiveness, words associated with sexiness that popped up during an "I like" trial were selected quicker.
