Reading this article (via hn) made me smile the other day. Social studies have proven again and again that physically-attractive people are universally treated better. Ugh, right? Thankfully, that's not the whole story.
This study shows that non-physical traits, how kind, hard-working, respected you are, affect people's perception of your physical attractiveness. Assuming the experiment is sound, how cool is that?! Of course, the skeptic in me is wondering whether you can truly gauge a person attractiveness by what somebody says they're attracted to.
So, beauty tip: be awesome. :)
