"What is beautiful is Good"

Good looks can get you far in life---
But psychologists say there ate unrecognised pitfalls for the beautiful.
Beauty is only skin deep, but ugly goes clean to the bone.
At the most superficial level, beauty might be thought to carry a kind of halo around it, we see that some one has one good attribute, and by association, our subconscious assumes that they have been blessed in other departments too.
" It's one of many status characteristics that can identify very early in our interaction."
To psychologist this is called this as " the bubble".
Combing through decades of findings, social psychologists Lisa Stettery Walker and Tonya Frevert at University of North Carolina at Charlotte have reviewed all the evidence to date - and their conclusions are not what you might expect .
Jon Hamm's character is remarkably is competent, yet manages to live in blissful self - delusion thanks to his good looks. As a doctor , for example , he can't even perform the Heimlich manoeuvre ,but somehow managed to drift through medical school thanks to his natural charm.
According to the available evidence, the bubble is a reality. In education, for instance, Walker and Frevert  found a wealth of research showing that better looking students, at school and university , tend to be judged by teachers as being more competent and intelligent- and that was reflected in the grades they gave them.
In the work place, your face really can be your fortune - when everything else is considered, more attractive people tend to earn more money and climb higher on the corporate leader than people who are considered less pleasing found that there was about a 10 to 15% difference in earnings between the most in the group- which added up to about $230,000.
" you are being conferred advantage throughout your life , from your schooldays into the workplace."
says Walker.
The surprising down sides of being drop dead gorgeous-
But if beauty pays in most circumstances, there are still situations where it can backfire, while attractive men may be considered better leaders, for instance , implicit sexist prejudices can work against attractive women, making then less likely to be hired for high- level jobs that require authority.
And as you might expect, good - looking people of both genders run into jealousy- one study found that if you are interviewed by someone of the same sex, they may be less likely to recruit you if they judge that you are not more attractive than they are .
More worryingly, being beautiful or handsome could harm your medical care.
We tend to link good looks to healthy, meaning that illnesses are often taken less seriously when they affect the good- looking. When treating people for pain, for instance, doctors tend to take less care over the more attractive people.
The bubble of beauty can be a somewhat lonely
One study in 1975, for instance found that people tend to move further away from a beautiful woman on the pathway - perhaps as a mark of respect but still making interaction more distance .
" Attractiveness can convey more power over visible space - but that in turn can make others feel they can't approach that person , " says Frevert.
Interestingly, the online dating website OK Cupid recently reported that people with the most flawlessly beautiful profile pictures are less likely to find dates that those with quirkier , less perfect pics - perhaps because the prospective dates are less intimidated.
So, as you might have guessed being beautiful is not a passport to certain happiness - though it helps.
Frevet and Walker are keen to emphasise that like our conceptions of beauty itself, these influences are superficial and by no means deep - rooted in our biology.
And it could be fairly easy to lessen the impact -if human resources departments give more information about a candidate's achievements before an interview, for example.
Ultimately, Frevert points out that focusing too much on your appearance can itself be detrimental if it creates undue stress and anxiety - even for those already blessed with good looks, " if you are obsessing about attractiveness, it may alter your experience and interactions".
She says - " It's a cliche , but no amount of beauty can make up for a bad personality."
