Criteria Of Attractiveness

Criteria Of Attractiveness | Psychology Of Relationships

  American psychologists  found that men are much more in agreement with each other on the issue of attractiveness of the opposite gender , than women .

 This is a conclusion they came as a result of the study , which was attended by more than 4,000 volunteers of both sexes aged 18 to 70 years.
  The subjects were evaluated photographs of persons of the opposite gender in terms of attractiveness. The authors of the study asked members to characterize people in the photo on the criteria: seductiveness , self-confidence , subtlety , sensuality, elegance, splendor of forms - for women, muscularity , masculinity , unusual appearance - for men and style , grooming and positive - for both sexes.
  As a result , it was found ,that the judgments of female attractiveness of men were based primarily on the physical features of their appearance and they put higher valuation to slim ,seductive and looking  confidently ladies .

  As for  women, most of them indicated slender and muscular men , but were not unanimous to their degree of attractiveness. Those men in the photo, which some participants of the experiment reported as very attractive , some other ladies seemed completely unsympathetic.

  The authors of the study , which results were published in the journal "The Psychological Science", maintain that , depending on the age of the volunteers  their priorities were changing in the evaluation of appearance : overaged subjects were more sympathetic to positive, smiling people.
