What is it about a British/Australian/Irish/Scottish accent that intrigues women? When I was in high school my goal was to marry someone with an accent. I know so many women who find men sexy just because they have an accent. When I hear someone with an accent my ears perk up. And I don't know why!

psych 101 actually.
Music perception studies show that what makes music interesting and catchy to us is when it's just different repetetive enough to be recognizable but has something unexpected in it. I suspect the same applies to speech

I've never heard of that before (as my high school psych class was mostly "who wants me to sign their hall pass?") but it makes sense!

At the time, I really liked that class - I think we had maybe five or six assignments the whole term. But in retrospect I'm kind of surprised that the school allowed our teacher to let us roam the halls for an hour.

Psych sounds like a pretty interesting subject, though. It's fun to learn about why you think like you think.
