    tl;dr

    1) The 'extravert' as in everyday use != MB 'extravert'.
    2) People on the disfavoured side of society (either because of their looks, or because of 994834 other reasons) are more likely to develop introverted tendencies.

    People in the center are not more good-looking (0 correlation), but definitely are more ready to accept social norms, so they might seem to be more "wanted".

    That's all the information you will get. So to answer your question: no.

    Aren't the introverts the proverbial hot girl in glasses that no one realizes is attractive until she takes off the glasses and goes to the school dance with the local quarterback?

    Basically extroverts are more attuned to the external labels of attractiveness and are more likely to display these for all to see whereas the introvert doesn't care as much. This is actually something that amazed me at just how directly people think and behave. If you don't advertise something, it is assumed you don't have it.

    Seriously? No. I have way less idea what makes "attractiveness" than most women.

    Depending on the other letters I have much more in common with many introverts than I do with some extroverts. We really should all know this.

    Nah your either hot or your not I guess. Extroverts would just tend to flaunt it more I'd say, not that i'm speaking from experience *blinding grin* ;D

    This makes no sense. If anything, the opposite is true.

    Mm. I guess E,S (not in this order - just more important than T-F, P-J) are the dichotomies most associated (positively correlated) with how carefully a person cares about his-her own personal appearance. Which isn't necessarily correlated with sexiness, but it can be perceived as such at first impact.

These people can be introverts or extraverts according to the typology theory, so in that sense I think there's not much correlation.
    That's exactly what I think, too.

    I don't like that notion. I feel drawn to exactly those girls before they take off their glasses and try to conform to the common standards of attractiveness.

    You just say that because you're an introvert. Don't worry; there can be exceptions to the hypothesis.

    I think a big factor in "attractiveness" is just being well kempt and having a style that works well for you.

    Example:
    Cameron Diaz


    and

    Cameron Diaz (Being John Malkovich)


    You could argue that if you're an extrovert, you'd care more about this stuff, but really, regardless of everything else, looking presentable is nice, if only for yourself.


    And a second example, because Being John... is cool like that.

    John Cusack


    and

    John Cusack + Diaz


    I'm not totally sure what all this really ads to the topic, except for pictures and the point that you should keep yourself clean. And that I don't think appeal has to do with intro/extroversion.

    Also, Japanese Geisha's - totally introverted, right?
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.
