Do you hear the saying "You look somehow familiar" almost every day? In short: You look perfectly average? Good for you, because numerous research results indicate that average faces are rated as attractive by most people . But regardless of whether you are average beautiful or look stunning, the fact is: beautiful people have it easier in. ,, Life. That is not exactly fair, but it is confirmed again and again. 2 In general, beautiful people are more popular with those around them and They are automatically assigned 15 positive character traits: good-looking people are generally rated as more successful, intelligent, credible, sociable, creative and hardworking; unattractive people are much more likely to be lazy, unimaginative and boring. 3 But that's not all: even in court, good-looking people are sometimes judged more leniently good-looking children often have better grades, and pretty copyists are punished less harshly than poor-looking children. Attractive women are more likely to marry rich and educated men and have more chances of getting help in the event of a car breakdown. In short: beautiful ones have advantages everywhere. And this also applies to professional life: Male Beaus have an approximately five percent higher salary than their colleagues with the uninteresting faces, good-looking women still earn four percent more, but have fewer opportunities for management positions - they are probably expected to be less tough Um In order to increase equality of opportunity when applying, it is therefore now rather unusual in the USA to enclose an application photo. 4 Apparently we instinctively judge beautiful things as better or more valuable. This assessment leads to different behaviors towards attractive and unattractive people: We are nicer to beautiful people, more unfriendly to ugly people. But there is no rational reason for this. In reality, we are only confirming our own prejudices. And that was already the case in antiquity. Because even with the ancient Greeks, it was true that whoever is beautiful is also good.
