You can tell how good a man is in bed by his personality type, scientists reveal

YOU can tell how good men are in bed if you study his personality, scientists claim.

They analysed 1,740 men in Taiwan who were young, healthy and sexually active.

But they shared the same problem in bed – erectile dysfunction.

Erectile dysfunction is said to be a common problem, especially as men get older.

It can be caused by health conditions, such as diabetes, as well as psychological issues, such as stress.

What urologists at Taipei Veterans General Hospital wanted to uncover was whether a man’s personality drives his inability to get or keep an erection.

They quizzed the participants in order to score them on erectile dysfunction severity.

They then measured how much they fit the personality type “type D personality (TPD)”. 

There are four personality types:

  • Type A, The Director: Goal-oriented, risk-taking, good under stress
  • Type B, The Socialiser: Relationship-oriented, outgoing, enthusiastic
  • Type C, The Thinker: Detail-oriented, logical, prepared
  • Type D, The Supported: Task-oriented, stabilising, cautious

It was found that more than half (54.1 per cent) of the men with erectile dysfunction had Type D personality, according to findings in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, published by Elsevier.

Some other traits of Type D personality include that they find it difficult to speak up, are shy, resistant to change, and go along with things rather than confront them.

Their personality strengths include being approachable, trusting, caring, stable, self-confident and reliable. 

And now, researchers suggest they are more likely to have severe erectile dysfunction.

The character trait of social inhibition had a greater influence on moderate or severe ED than negative affectivity.

Social inhibition is when someone shys away from socialising, while negative affectivity is when someone strongly feels emotions such as sadness, worry or irritability.

Men with Type D personality also scored higher on a depressive symptom scale than men with other personality types. 

Depression is a risk factor for erectile dysfunction, according to the NHS. 

But where this personality type may fault men is that they are less likely to seek medical help, research suggests.

The paper also said that links have been made between TDP and bad health habits such as inactivity, smoking, and poor diet – all of which are not favourable for erectile dysfunction.

“The TDP prevalence in the overall population of European countries is estimated to be 16.6 to 38.5 per cent,” researchers said.
