Top 10 Seeds of Jealousy


Japanese men and women asked to rank what makes them jealous of their friends offer up an unsurprisingly materialistic list, with some significant differences between the sexes.

For jealous women:

1. A wide circle of friends

2. Lucky

3. Nice body

4. High income

5. Rich family

6. Cool or cute

7. Nice skin

8. Gift of gab

9. Lovely spouse

10. Popularity

The survey is once again too polite to say “large breasts,” although it can probably be inferred that this is the major component of a “nice body.”

For jealous men:

1. High income

2. Luck

3. Popularity

4. Gift of gab

5. Rich family

6. Good at work

7. A wide circle of friends

8. Clever

9. Lovely spouse

10. Cool or cute

Similar sentiments seem to be felt by both genders, with the very conspicuous exception of the number one spot in both rankings – money and friendships are, not surprisingly, valued rather differently across the sexes.

    Ah, but a factor you have to consider is whether they have the need feel jealous at these certain things, and that just opens up all kinds of other variables. That's why I don't like surveys like this, they try to get a quick answer without any thought about method. But hey, if it sells...

    This article just shows (yet again) what sheep and shallow fucks a majority of people are.

    The only thing which would've hammered that fact home much harder is if this survey had been an international one... not just in Japan, but anywhere in the developed world.

    Wow. I haven't been jealous in such a long time that I've forgot how it feels. I don't see the point in it. Talk about wasted time and your emotions when you could be progressing your life to actually get the stuff you want.

    1. High income
    Money wouldn't buy the only thing I want (my health back).
    2. Luck
    Actually, I have so much karma luck isn't worth much to me.
    3. Popularity
    I've never known a period of my life where I wasn't popular enough.
    4. Gift of gab
    Hehe I have too much skill at this already.
    5. Rich family
    Again, money matters little to me, although my brother and sister are mostly well off.
    6. Good at work
    Work is for worker types, I'd be an employer.
    7. A wide circle of friends
    Friends are easy considering I already aced popular. And that makes this category redundant.
    8. Clever
    Well I have been tested and I apparently have a high IQ.
    9. Lovely spouse
    She is the other end of the scale, but so what, I'd rather have a good wife than a cute toy.
    10. Cool or cute
    Cool is subjective. I must be farely interesting in order to be so popular that I have a lot of friends. Again this questionarire was clearly not thought out well.
    I'm not cute, but I'd rather be clever given a choice.

    what do they mean by "lucky"? O_o and how can one be jealous of that? "Hmmm, this guy looks lucky to me, I think I'm getting jealous~!!" (well, maybe I don't get it cause I am kindda lucky myself XD, though I don't see how anybody would be jealous on something as relative and as impossible to prove as that....) I personaly get envious of rich or very popular people, whether the are guys or girls. ^^"

    My first would be "Clever", then "Good at work".. if I would have only those two, I would be able to get "High income", and create a "Rich family".
    ...I am not jealous... or rather I don't know how that feels... if jealousy is what I think it is, then I never was jealous of anyone.

    I see this as just more reinforcement of how otaku are in such a better place than normalfags. Friends? Really? People are jealous of people with more friends than them? Being cool?

    As nice as that ideal is, in a society where social standing is the difference between life and death its not really applicable. You can care all you want, but its better to at least maintain a neutral standing than being an asshole or worse.

    I agree nonetheless, being cool and all that crap is a bunch of stuff that should have been left back in school.

    So should women with big breast with back ache not get a reduction or does your loli mind say that's ok ? Because if it's the latter you would be a liar in what you say, and if the former your ok with girls in pain when they can fix it?

    The ultimate excuse. The fact that it's so high on the list makes me sick.

    I'm surprised that men value high income higher than women. Maybe the things at the top of the lists are things that make you "get lucky" with the opposite sex.

    Going to the argument about bigger breasts for a moment, AND putting aside our own personal interests. For the health of women a "b" would probably be good. I have a lot of female friends who complain about their small breasts and friends with large breasts.

    The crowd with the small breasts wants the extra perks that usually comes with bigger breasts.

    The crowd with the large breasts are complaining about chronic back pain, poor posture, and a number of other things.

    Friends with the... *ahem* larger breasts complain about what the above complain about but with the additional cost for custom bras as each set usually goes around $500+ depending.

    Place where I'm living, above a certain cup size the government offers free breast reduction surgery because it's deemed as a health hazard.

    My advice to the women out there with small breasts and want more, really think about the downsides too. And if you're that worried about it regardless go ahead and eat as much meat as you want. Can't remember where but I'm pretty sure I read that the chemicals we feed to animals we eat to make them larger work for womens breasts.

    Okay... I'm done... dunno why I sort of ranted about that... was kinda bored I guess :P

    Let the flame wars begin? :P

    Two bits about the actual article:
    I can agree with what's on the list for myself but I can't help but wonder if there are people out there that can put those aside and see past that...
