    Default evil demon personality traits linking to beautiful people

    People With Dark Personalities Tend to Create a Physically Attractive Veneer
    Which personality traits are associated with physical attractiveness? Recent findings suggest that people high in some dark personality traits, such as narcissism and psychopathy, can be physically attractive. But what makes them attractive? Studies have confounded the more enduring qualities that impact attractiveness (i.e., unadorned attractiveness) and the effects of easily manipulated qualities such as clothing (i.e., effective adornment). In this multimethod study, we disentangle these components of attractiveness, collect self-reports and peer reports of eight major personality traits, and reveal the personality profile of people who adorn themselves effectively. Consistent with findings that dark personalities actively create positive first impressions, we found that the composite of the Dark Triad—Machiavellianism, narcissism, and psychopathy—correlates with effective adornment. This effect was also evident for psychopathy measured alone. This study provides the first experimental evidence that dark personalities construct appearances that act as social lures—possibly facilitating their cunning social strategies.

    Im certainly an evil man. Actually the title is misleading, the article is about creating an attractive veneer. Not necessarily someone being beautiful in the conventional sense of natural physical beauty, although this could just be my misunderstanding.

There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Jaguar is right, I've done this for years and I am as good as good gets.

    no, you are right and also effective at getting in that first impression

    wondering if these are the same people who are the "social climbers"

    So next time, be wary of that well-dressed man nearby. He could be a serial killer in the making.

    Superficial and facial personalities are easily spotted? Great stuff, anyway, I go with Erich Fromm's social character analysis and ask whether or not the marketing personality is a product of narcissism etc. or if narcissism etc. are products of the marketing personality. In any case they are products of the cultural underpinnings of capitalism.

    people who are interested in creating good impressions might be scheming bastards who have nothing but that image, or they might be people who recognize the value that a good first impression makes but have a basis of ethics that guide what they do with that first impression.

    also, some people are good at choosing things that look good, others aren't, there is that whole NT stereotype of being really disheveled and wearing mismatching socks that we've all heard...what does that say (nothing, imo).

    i think a lot of movies cast female villains as vamps, wearing especially provocative clothing. i don't know what that suggests.

    basically, i have some ideas but no analysis, y'all can pick at it if ya want.
    Don't know how much it'll bend til it breaks.
