... do you think it's true that those blessed with looks are more likely to have better jobs and a higher quality lifestyle than those who are not?

it shouldn't but in this F*%$ed up society of ours i'd say they actually do, "pretty" people are statistically more likely to get jobs because they come across as more reliable then ugly people which leads to more money and in turn a higher quality lifestyle. I wouldn't say a higher level of happiness but fiscally better off yes.

Of course it does.

Its all psychological, a person is more willing to hire a beautiful young lady for a secretary position over someone lacking in the looks department...

Same goes for other physical features. Tall people are usually taken more seriously than shorter people. Goes the same way for people who are in good shape.

That funny because i find flaws in that (i mean the logic not your statement as i agree fully) as if you think about it someone with good looks is gonna be much better at seduction based crimes and tall people are gonna look more intimidating (im living proof of that). Good shape falls under one of the others depending on the crimes/intent.

These are just my personal perspectives and i agree that people are more willing to be hired it just lacks alot of logic behind the choices those in HR make.

Not necessarily.

My boss is not the most attractive lady (no offense to her she is actually a good boss) and makes a horrendous amount of money.

Look at the acting world too (eg. Hollywood) there are plenty of "ugly" actresses and actors who are successful - Julia Roberts, Sarah Jessica Parker, Danny DeVito - to name a few.

I for one wouldn't hire a stuck up ******* no matter how good he or she looked unless they were the best suited for a job.

Plus beauty is all in the eye of the beholder, I honestly cannot fathom how some people are considered attractive when I find them completely unappealing, so it's really subjective.

To a degree. There is what I call the Barrier Exam where "looks" no longer get you in the position with ease and these are often held by genuinely smart (scholar and training wise) people. These are the jobs that often pay more and hold way more prestige than jobs below that line.


Note: Barrier Exam is a reference to one of the most extreme requirements I've seen in a major. It is unique to Music Majors and states that you have 3 chances to pass it. You are not allowed to take Junior and Senior level Music courses until you pass it (exceptions only given if you're not a Music major). If you fail all three times you are barred from seeking a degree in Music.

Absolutely. We live in a shallow, disposable culture.

Regardless of what people say, everybody judges books by their covers.

You can't not judge a book by its cover our brain is doing exactly that once they step into sight or their voice is heard, it's simply building a list of plausible explanations in accordance to past experiences and as you get to know that person the list is fine tuned. Attractive people are seen as more likeable and trustworthy as bad as it is so they have the leg up in an interview that only lasts a short amount of time where your mind is still in the process of building that list up, not fine tuning it.
