Physical Attractiveness Perception

ppMany people feel self-conscious around strangers and become uncomfortable in others’ company because they don’t like their own looks.

It’s so common for a person to feel anxious around strangers¬†because of believing that he has an unattractive nose or an unattractive body.

Do you know why do these people feel uncomfortable around others? It’s not that they have some physical features that they don’t like, but it’s because they don’t know how people perceive physical attractiveness.

Each person sees the world differently, and all people focus on the things that concern them the most. A person who doesn’t like his own nose shape will focus on others’ noses, especially the ones who have more attractive ones.

Do you know what does this means? It means that only those concerned about their own nose shape will examine the details of your nose!

By understanding how people perceive physical attractiveness, you will become much more comfortable with your looks, and when this happens, your self-confidence will skyrocket.

How people see physical attractiveness

We all know that symmetrical faces and women with low waist to hip ratio are more attractive than others but do you know how people perceive this information?

People process your overall looks in search of attractive features, and they form the first impression without getting into much detail. This means that your face can appear so attractive to someone even if your nose doesn’t look pretty, according to his own opinion!

I know a friend who is very attractive according to the opinion of most people who know her. This friend has a tiny scar on her forehead, and as a result, she becomes self-conscious around others because of believing that they will judge her by the scar.

She believes that others will focus on the scar because that’s exactly what she does, while the truth is that most people judge her attractiveness as a whole and rarely pay attention to her scar even though they notice it.

The perception of attractiveness & your overall looks

A few days ago, I was walking in the street near my house where a male friend passed along with his female friend. The guy recognized me from my back and came beside me with his car to say hi; at the same moment, I noticed that the girl started sending me attraction signals even though she could barely see me.

It’s clear that she saw me from the back, noticed something as simple as my shoulder’s width, and then when she got close, she found that my face is almost symmetrical but not perfect by any means!

Still, she saw me as an attractive person not because I had perfect facial features but because the way people perceive physical attractiveness lets them ignore most small details that we don’t like about ourselves.

In the gym, I met a female friend who doesn’t think she looks attractive, while the first time I saw her, I found her very attractive. All I noticed about her during the first encounter was her stylish sports clothes and her fit body. My friend doesn’t like her facial features and thinks that she is not attractive, while, in fact, her overall looks give the impression that she is beautiful.

In short, people judge your attractiveness based on your overall looks, and it will rarely happen that someone judges your appearance based on a single face feature such as your lips or your nose.
