SUCCESS AND BEAUTY

My friends, if it seems that attractive people have everything handed to them or are able to move up the career ladder faster, receiving raises faster, having promotions or increased praise. Well their, just may be some truth to that. In 2018, the website RateMyProfessor.com, which allows college students to review their professors, dropping its “Red Hot Chili Pepper” rating following social-media backlash contending that it objectified professors, women in particular. Interpreted as a “hotness” scale, which helped give more-attractive professors higher overall ratings, the Hot Chili Pepper was a prime example of the correlation between Beauty and success.

However, the question is, do looks equate to success? Potentially. From professors too CEOs to politicians, it seems that no career path is exempt from the idea that perceived attractiveness could influence one’s success in the workplace compared to subjectively “less attractive”co-workers. In his book Beauty pays Mr Daniel Hamermesh, who is an economist and distinguished scholar at Barnard College, has evaluated how looks does indeed influence pay, raises and expectations in the U.S. work-place.

For example, Hamermesh’s research states that workers who are perceived to be good-looking will earn an average of 5% more per year than the average-looking man or women, wow employees considered unattractive can actually miss out on up to 9%. This beauty-base ideology can even be narrowed down to specific physical characteristics.

For example, a University of Florida study concluded that for every additional inch of height, a tall employee can earn, (this is going to blow your mind) an average of $789 extra per year. If you exercise regularly, you could earn 9% more on average than workers who don’t make it to the gym at all, according to a recent report in the Journal of Labor Research. Even blinds, yes, may have more fun, economically speaking, in a 2010 study from the Queensland University of Technology in Australia found that of 13 thousand Caucasian women, the blondes earned at least 7% more than non-blondes.

But why, why, does success seem to favor all the head-turners over more ordinary counterparts? Well, centuries ago, it was a common belief that good-looking people were more reproductively fit, which made them innately healthier. However, that’s not true anymore; the so-called ugly people are just as healthy as the so-called good-looking people, but we still have in our minds that somehow good looks are beneficial and therefore we are attracted to them, Hamermesh says.

Economists have also theorized that beautiful people appear more self-confident than their homelier counterparts, which could appear more to employers and colleagues alike. Gender, may also play a role in how looks May influence success. Beauty Pays points out that a man who is considered to be handsome, could make up to 13% more over his career than his less attractive co-worker. According to Hamermesh, the effects of this beauty first mindset might be more detrimental for men than for a women in a society that always expects more men than women to occupy the workplace.

Women, he says, are more likely to opt out of working than men, so they are less likely to feel the negativity effects of their appearance. Women are far from immune, however, my friends, a recent report from George Washington University found that in terms of weight, obese women were paid on average $4,879 less per year than normal weight co-workers, (wow) an obese man made on average $2,646 less than their normal-weight counterparts. And still, while a 2016 study shows a 20% pay boost for more-attractive people, it is also revealed that women who wears makeup and styles their hair and wear nice clothing make 20% more than their less groomed counterparts.

On the contrary, a study in 2019 described the “femme fatale” effect, which shows some real evidence that attractive women in the workplace are seen as being less truthful, and not being trustworthy, and more worthy of being fired. In the evolving landscape of LinkedIn profile picture and Skype interviews, employers can immediately see what potential hires looks like, even sometimes before reading through their resumes. Studies have yet to confirm whether this exacerbated this phenomenon.

So it’s very unclear, as of now if your LinkedIn photo could be costing you a job or if your appearance on a Skype conference call could be the underlying determining factor behind your latest promotion. However, Hamermesh believe it just may be possible. Given that people do want beauty, by putting their beauty up front, in some cents it saves time for people, he says.

For an example, a job candidate strolling into an office with unkempt hair, a scraggly looking beard and an ill-fitting wrinkled suit could be plucked from the list of candidates before even coming in to the office, if employers can identify those red flags in his or her LinkedIn profile picture. This preliminary looks based screening might also enhance the importance of beauty in people’s minds, says Hamermesh.

He’s skeptical that our innate gravitation to attractive people will change anytime soon, so boys and girls in the meantime, what can those of us who aren’t the Red Hot Chili Peppers do to stand out in the workplace? Anything says Hamermesh. Accentuate the things that you are good at and that you enjoyed really doing. Put the best foot forward.

I am sure most of us have witnessed some of these things. My advice to everyone is to be the best that you can be in your field. Believe in your abilities and never give up, no matter what. Always look for ways to improve your knowledge in what you are doing, and always keep in mind failure has value, as long as you allow yourself to recognize and understand that value.

    1. Good eveningshariful islam, and thank you for visiting us here at weightlifting for a Beautiful World. I guess that, what really upsets me is the fact that a person who’s more appealing to the supervisors eyes, even though that they may not have the ability of one that isn’t appealing to the supervisors eyes, may get the promotion because of that reason. And that is not cool, it is not honorable however, unfortunately, this is the way our world is. And it has been for thousands of years, so I doubt very seriously if it will ever change. Thank you again for visiting us, and if, it’s anything at all that we can do for you please give us a shout. May prosperity and good health be always with you. Humbly yours, Paul Earl.

  2. As the saying goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder”. Beauty comes in different forms. So, it is so amazing to hear that beauty is still such an influence when it comes to salary and position and status in life. It is a completely outdated way of thinking and sometimes quite unfair. I feel for those who are subject to this type of situation.

    Nevertheless, I am totally with you about starting an online business to keep from this sort of unfair subjection. Kudos to all who think outside of the box.

    1. Good evening Geri, I agree with you on everything however, this is the way that the world has been, and probably will always be. Throughout my life I have seen this play out over and over in many different fields, from music to corporate both men and woman, and yes indeed Hallelujah for owning your own online business. Thank you for visiting us here at weight lifting for a beautiful world. If it’s anything that we can do for you as I always say give us a shout. May prosperity and good health be always with you. Humbly yours, Paul Earl.

  3. This is an interesting discussion of success and beauty. I will admit, that when I’m shopping online, I do notice whether a site looks good or not, and it does influence where I will shop and spend money. Granted, this isn’t personal beauty, but I think it’s relevant to your point that something that is pleasing to the eye is also going to give an impression of quality and success. How do you feel beauty relates to success in strictly online ventures? Are there any scientific studies on this theory?

    1. Good evening Aly, very nice to see you again. Throughout my life I have seen this play out over and over in many different professions, and I have always just shook my head and said oh my God, and that person doesn’t even know what they’re doing. Usually females fall in that category when there is a male supervisor. And yes, there are several scientific studies that has proven this. That is the reason I wrote the article. I thank you so very much for visiting us once again, and as always if it’s anything at all that my team and I can do for you by all means reach out to us. May prosperity and good health be always with you. Humbly yours, Paul Earl.

  4. You have shared some interesting statistics. Who knew that even your height or color of your hair could affect your job status?! It is quite astounding to see how much the perceived “attractiveness” of a person can directly impact them in the workplace! That is an interesting thing because each person sees other people in a unique light. A person that may appear ‘attractive’ to one person may not be to the next person. 

    I do agree that everyone should find something they are good at and work hard doing it. Be the best you can be, however that may look for you. Every person has talents to share!

    One question still remains on my mind though. What do you think could be done, if anything, to help change this unfair advantage left up to the individual employers based solely on appearance?

    1. Good evening Heidi, my team and I thank you for visiting weight lifting for a beautiful world. Heidi, I have seen it throughout my life time, and time again, in many professional bullpens. Most of the time however, is when the supervisor or owner of a business employees a very beautiful young lady, and because she may smile or walk a certain way, or been over a certain way. In front of this gentleman, she whines up being promoted through the ranks or receiving a salary increase. When her abilities, does not warranted this. For men and women, this has been going on for thousands of years, as the scientific Studies have shown. And I for one, don’t think it is ever going to change unfortunately.  I thank you, for visiting us once again, and if it’s anything at all that my team or I can do for you by all means reach out to us. May good health and prosperity always be with you. Humbly yours, Paul Earl.

Good evening Christina, to be absolutely truthful to you my dear friend, I have seen this play out over and over again throughout my life, and it’s not cool at all however, this is been going on for thousands of years and it probably will not change.

    1. Good evening Teresa, we thank you for visiting us here at weightlifting for Beautiful World.

  8. I would love to create a website like yours as the template used is really nice, simple and brings about clarity of the write ups, but then you wrote a brilliant article on success and beauty. i would think that there is a fine line between success and beauty. but i agree that beauty brings about some level of success in ones life.

    1. Good even smoochie, I thank you so very much for visiting us here at weightlifting for Beautiful World. And thank you for your wonderful kind words. I have no problem for man or woman to be beautiful however, what gets my blood boiling is, if that person of beauty does not have the abilities that is needed to be qualified to have a certain position, or to receive a certain amount of money, then why  are they receiving when there is a person over there that is not quite as good looking however,  has a lot more knowledge for that particular job and they’re not giving a raise or a better position. This is wrong, and is wrong again. I have personally seen it with my own eyes throughout my life, this is why I preach gain the knowledge that you need to be the best in your field. Once again, we thank you for visiting us here at weight lifting for a beautiful world. and if it’s anything at all that my team or I can do for you by all means reach out to us. May prosperity and good health be always with you.  Humbly yours, Paul Earl.

  9. I can tell that this is a really good one. I should first commend the input of effort in making this superb website with nice features and also writing an article on success and beauty. there are some times that i have noticed the preference of beauty when it comes to granting some request. this is a clear proof that beauty brings success.

    1. Good evening Benny, so good to see you again. It is no doubt that a good looking man or woman most of the time wines up with better jobs, or a better position in a corporation. The problem with this is if they do not have the necessary abilities, they should not receive that position or that higher-paying job, if it’s someone else that is not quite as good looking who does have better knowledge or abilities. One would think in this world and in this time and age, that this no longer would be happening however, it is and it has been for thousands of years. It is not fair but, no one promised us that life would be fair right? There’s only one thing that a person can do to give them balance in this world of competition, and that is go out there and get the knowledge that you need so you can be one  of the best at what you do. We thank you for visiting us here at weight lifting for a beautiful world once again, and as always if it’s anything that my team or I can do for you please, please reach out to us. May prosperity and good health be always with you. Humbly yours, Paul Earl.
