"The old saying notwithstanding, opposites do not really attract. Likes attract. In one of the classic papers, originally published in 1943, two sociologists studied 1,000 engaged couples in Chicago, expecting to find at least some traits in which opposites did indeed attract. But out of fifty-one social characteristics studied, the sign of the correlation was positive for every single one." - Richard J. Herrnstein, Charles Murray, The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life (1994)
