    I think I need to lose weight, but I think I have a very attractive face. I need to get to the gym more often than I have been (2-3 times a week for an hour).

    Lol, darling, you are totally misinterpreting the study/data.

    The point being, that extreme deviations from normal-looking facial features, (for women, this excludes, to an extent, eyes and lips, both of which tend to be universally preferred to be slightly larger than average), are deemed as being less attractive than common/average looking facial features.

    Really beautiful women are beautiful because there is essentially nothing abnormal about their face, and this lack of abnormality makes them beautiful.

    FYI: This is universal, not just race specific, as you seem to suggest in your post.

    You know, this thread would be way cooler if each response had to include a clear picture of the poster in question.

    I'm just sayin'.

    True. Then we can judge once and for all who is attractive and who isn't.

    You first.

    It's a little late for that, people have already answered.

    I don't care, I've posted my picture here before. Like here: http://www.typologycentral.com/forum...tml#post176727

    I just think it'd be interesting to hear people's opinions on attractiveness juxtaposed with pictures of them.

    Well, I have a user pic, so you can just click on my avatar to see one.
    I've also posted in the picture threads, and the really, really, bad picture thread.

    (Here's a random, enormous picture of me.)





    How long have you thought yourself as being physically attractive and what is it about yourself that you find attractive?

    I think I'm above average.


    How important are looks?

    Stupidly.

    Looks tend to formulate the basis of our initial impressions towards each other.

    From an instinctual basis, it makes sense to evaluate one's environment, if to realize potential threats; mates; like-minded peoples with whom to communalize one's resources.

    Unfortunately, this basic prerogative has taken on a much more complex initiative. How distinctly we view beauty often distorts our global perspective of a subject.

    Beauty is then diagrammed into the context of a good/bad scenario, wherein certain traits are uplifted and others vilified.

    Within this equation, many who deserve praise are forgotten due to arbitrary cultural friction with inherent phenotypical expression.


    How important is it to feel or not feel physically attractive?


    As our impressions of the world begin with ourselves, it is unfortunate that physical attractiveness is often highly important to many.

    Would it be that difficult to search the previous picture threads ?

    With respect to the averaged pictures, I would think that the images created would be very symmetrical. An image with 'averaged out' distances between/sizes of facial features might also make them better fit certain mathematical ratios found in nature (that we associate with attractiveness).

    Hmmm... I seem to remember saying "hides in a corner" when I posted some of my pictures in picture time part 2.

    You could try searching for that. In general, though, if no one gives you a line to look for, I'm afraid it could be rather tedious.

    Here's me for those of you who haven't noticed my pic whoring.




    Here with curly hair no makeup.

    I'm okay with how I look like but I also realize that beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. I can find beauty in most people which I why I enjoy what I do.
