Chosen Question: How do I define beauty?
What I know: Beauty can be subjective to everyone. But I think it’s important to to be objective in how you define beauty. Once you understand how a person is beautiful, you can show your love to that person that will make them happy. Things people point to describe how a person is can be: physical (how they look), social (how they interact around you), or personal (how they truly are around you). Obviously people who are better in physical appearance receive more praise, or people can make up for it in their social interaction, but I think people nowadays don’t understand the importance of personal beauty. It is what hold relationships together and how you can connect with that person and be with them forever. There can be also a very soulful thing about a person, a combination of everything above that just makes you infatuated. This will fade in time, but it can determine the start of a relationship.
What I would like to know: How my other classmates define beauty. What are some common agreements on types of beauty? Is there some science involved with it?
Research: Factors of beauty, multiple factors influence beauty; (bear in mind, this is research and not necessarily true) symmetry, having a face equal on both sides; finger length, if you have a long ring finger relative to index finger, it shows you have higher testosterone levels, meaning you are healthier (sperm count, cardiovascular system etc.); Women are unconsciously looking for a man who has a waist-to-hip ratio of 9:10 and are attracted to a partner with a big jaw, a broad chin, an imposing brow;
Research found that smiling females were rated as more attractive, whereas men showing happy emotions were rated as less attractive.
Science of beauty, whether a person is attractive or not comes down if they are a healthy mate who can produce offspring; we look at celebrities at a mark of how attractive a person should be; we do like people who look a lot like us, which would be a good genetic matchTags: AttractivenessBeautyDefinitionObjectivity
