Women might find altruism to be "sexy", as the report states. But a hefty salary makes up for a lot of other social deficiencies. Poverty is not very attractive to women, apparently. Speaking from a personal perspective.

Jim, if you make it a vow of poverty, then it's altruism.


I have given this some further thought, and have decided that "altruism" is a word social scientists coined to describe the Christ-like charitable acts that they do not understand and cannot explain. I suppose the apostle Paul expressed it well when he asserted, "Charity never faileth" () .
