Study Overview

In 2006, in order to determined the most repulsive jobs to marry into, the IoHT polled 40 college-aged people with the query: "what is the worst job to have?"  The conditional term ‘worst’ was specified in terms of sexual selection perspectives, but also with reference to psychological effects, physicalities, long-term effects, peer pressure, social perspectives, and family prerogatives.  In other words, survey participants were essentially instructed to select the worst jobs as based on the perspective that they wouldn’t want to date or marry a person if they had that job.
