There is a body of scientific research that identifies the factors for infidelity.
Some people are more likely to have affairs than others.
Studies of American couples indicate that 20-40% of heterosexual married men and 20-25% of heterosexual married women will have an extramarital affair during their lifetime. (2)

Infidelity is the major factor in the spreading of STDs. It is that simple. Sexually Transmitted Diseases are passed from one person to another during intimate contact. There are rare exceptions to that. Two healthy faithful partners are fairly safe from any STD.

Scientists from a number of Universities were interested in any psychological signs that would point at one’s inclination to become unfaithful to their partner. Those signs are called predisposing factors. Some of those factors are related to previous psychological trauma, personality traits, past life experiences, upbringing, gender and more. (1)

This test was developed based on the research of the predisposing factors.
