What do people find beautiful?

The March 2004 Issue of Evolution & Human Behavior revealed what influences our decision in determining an individuals attractiveness.
Key Points:
  • Physically attractive traits include high degrees of bilateral facial symmetries, such as eyes that are identical in shape and size, and waist-to-hip ratios of 0.7 for women and 0.9 for men.
  • People may see physical attractiveness differently when they know that person's other qualities, usually invisible to strangers
  • The researchers offer this beauty tip: "If you want to enhance your physical attractiveness, become a valuable social partner."
But that's just what one study says. In the end of the day, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
