A man benefits more from beauty


Feb 13, 2024

An attractive appearance is believed to be a catalyst for social advancement, according to a study conducted in the United States. The study, published in the Social Science Quarterly, found that good-looking individuals receive many benefits from their appearance, including higher education, income, and prestigious occupations. Researchers from the University of Oslo and the Polish Academy of Sciences used data on US youth from the 1990s to the 2010s for their research. They found that attractive individuals were more likely to have higher education, higher incomes, and more prestigious occupations than their parents.

The study also revealed that an attractive appearance had a greater impact on the social ascent of men, giving them an advantage in professional success, such as getting a raise, promotion, or desired jobs. Women also benefited from attractive appearances in terms of education and income, although to a lesser extent than men. However, appearance did not play a role in women’s professional advancement. The researchers believe that income and education depend more on the subjective assessments of employers and teachers, which can be influenced by appearance.

They also acknowledge that their results may be influenced by the fact that the study was conducted in the United States and that the pattern may differ in societies with less economic and gender inequality. They suggest that it would be interesting to see if the same findings prevail in more equal countries such as Finland or Denmark. Further research is needed to understand the impact of appearance on social advancement in different societal contexts.

Lastly, there is a list of businesses and job opportunities at the end, which seems unrelated to the content provided.
