“Don’t judge a book by its cover,” they say. “It’s what’s on the inside that matters.” Unfortunately, that’s not always true. We may try our best not to judge someone by their looks but a person’s appearance is the first thing we notice when meeting them. And if we like what we see, we’re more likely to hire them, ask them out or give them our vote. It’s scientifically proven.
In a study conducted by the University of California, Irvine, 140 volunteers chose the more attractive political candidate when given the choice to vote in a fictional election. Despite also being given candidate biographies and knowledge of their political leanings, the better looking candidate got the most votes.
If love at first sight exists, it’s only because we’re enjoying someone’s physical appearance. The glow of their skin, the shape of their body or their youthful smile are attractive physical characteristics. First impressions make a huge impact on the people you meet, especially to a hiring manager for the job you’re hoping to get.
According to the studies of Daniel S. Hamermesh, author of Beauty Pays: Why Attractive People Are More Successful, looks do pay off in the office. Based on a $20 an hour scale, Hamermesh’s research indicates that workers considered attractive earn $230,000 more than average-looking workers.
Look Better, Feel Better
When you look good, you feel good; there’s no doubt about it. Perhaps Botox treatments have made those lines around your eyes vanish, those frown lines become nonexistent and your forehead smoother than ever. You begin to notice a spring in your step and the barrage of compliments from friends have boosted your confidence. It’s no secret that looking more youthful makes you feel great. The Journal of Dermatologic Surgery found that people treated with Botox had an overall improved self-esteem and positive sense of well-being.
Looking healthy and feeling good often make you want to keep going. Maybe that HCG diet plan is working and you’ve lost those 20 pounds of belly fat. Suddenly, that double-chin isn’t staring back at you in the mirror anymore. Looking your best gives you motivation to stay fit and continue to improve. You’re more likely to continue your runs at Bill Schupp Park because you know they work. The sense of accomplishment you get when your jeans are looser and your skin is clearer is not something that you want to end.
