    About joining an exclusive group because in "the real world" you're treated with jealousy--in some ways that's true, but it could also be more cut-throat in a place with only "beautiful" people. "Ohhh she's prettier than me...."

    Lolz so I joined the website and I've 53 "positive" votes out of 53 so I guess I'm in... I can't do much except search up people so I looked up their "elite" or their "highest ranked" and :| I'm disappointed. I'd rather shuffle through VS magazine catalogs LOLOLOL. Interestingly enough... they all seem to manipulate pictures in the same way. And gosh some of those girls... You can't report nudes, can you? SCARRED.

    But um yeah... pretty much average - above average that are skilled at makeup and/or taking pictures (at least most of them). Interestin' stuff though...

    Sort of, it depends on what you use the questionnaire for. It was not designed for and should not be used to tell how well 'neurotypical' people can read facial expressions, since the variance is somewhat high. The test is only validated for discriminating Asperger Syndrome (AS) or High-Functioning Autism (HFA) from healthy controls. There was further discussion in my previous post.

    Looking at the appendices which I skipped last time. The general population means were 26.0 (SD=4.2) for men and 26.4 (SD=3.2) for women. The mean score for the student subset was 28.0 (SD=3.5). Looking further in the appendices, the score for the IQ matched (matched to the HFA/AS group and had a mean IQ of about 115), was 30. I'm guessing the reason why the authors stated in the discussion that IQ was not related to the scores is that the sample size (15) was small and the effect was not observed in the much larger general population group. But as I said in my previous post

    Nevertheless, I suspect those reporting very high scores are reflecting selection bias (those who received lower scores chose not to report), fraud and training effects since I suspect this questionnaire has done the rounds before. Those scoring 32 or higher are in the top 6th percentile.

    But as I said in my previous post:
    Note that the language ("target words") used to describe the facial expression was not based on the mood, or self reported feelings of the person in the image, but selected ad-hoc. So the test is not measuring whether you can tell the mood/thoughts of the individual in the photo, but whether you report the same perceptual associations as the group that determined the word associations..

    i find it hilarious that a thread that early on had an 'omg, how shallow are these people?' tone quickly degenerated into a tacky, judgmental analysis of the relative attractiveness/ugliness of a bunch of strangers' photographs.

    too perfect. stay classy!

    LOL. But in all fairness, criticizing supposed epitomes of beauty is not the same sin as requiring one's potential soul mate to look attractive to others.

    My criticism didn't have to do with it somehow being wrong to care about other peoples' looks or want a good looking partner. It was what I believe to be the shortcomings of the system, the odd interpretation they had of the concept of beauty, and subsequently the kind of dickish personality someone would probably need to honestly participate in that site.
