Andrew Ross Sorkin crafted interesting article in the New York Times based on the study performed by the two scholars: Joseph T. Halford and Hung-Chia Hsu. The findings are astonishing. Who would even take under consideration attractiveness of the CEO as one of the indicators to drive up the company’s profits?
Well, it seems numbers don’t lie. Scientists used face’s features to determine the beauty of the person. The CEO of Yahoo, Marissa Mayer score was pretty close to Angelina Jolie’s.
Appearance generally shouldn’t matter, since we cannot alter our looks unless we undergo plastic surgery. Anyways. My point is that many people try to deny the fact that their appearance enabled them to achieve certain goals in life. They say If you work enough, study enough, and embrace the philosophy of perseverance and integrity your looks don’t really play significant role in life.
Well… Somehow world plays by a different kind of rules. Attractive people are better in negotiating, selling, in getting others attention. It is our human nature, that tempts us to trust more people who are pretty. Maybe because people think of them as winners already.
I believe in balance. The inner beauty enables to embrace the outside beauty properly with respect and responsibility. Beautiful people have advantage that’s undeniable, I just hope that their attractiveness doesn’t overshadow what’s really important in life.
