Attractive people are able to have many advantages and positive outcomes, such as having more popularity, greater confidence, more dating opportunities, more promotional chances, and higher salaries (Patel, Utpal, and Rebecca, par.4). Being attractive is important nowadays because it affects people’s interpersonal relationships and workplace experiences. First of all, attractive people are more likely to have better relationships in societies. The author of the article “Women’s Beauty: Put Down or Power Source?” mentions that “beauty is a form of power (Sontag 94),” which is true, especially in building relationships. To have good social and interpersonal interactions, the essential factor is physical attractiveness (Patel, Utpal, and Rebecca, par.1).
In “The Beguiling Truth about Beauty” by Carlin Flora, she describes how other people influence the way we perceive ourselves by attractiveness. In the world we live, usually the most attractive get special treatment so people see less of themselves. People are always comparing to others on daily basis because that’s the way our brain is program. Most of the time looks are not the way other would see us but by the way we talk or express which changes our appearance. Overall the way people actually feel about themselves is the true meaning of beauty no matter what others think.
Men are expected to be the breadwinners of the family; they are thought to be intelligent, strong, and brave and women are just supposed “to become someone’s wife” (Cisneros) and look pretty. Over the ages and even now, women are looked at as objects rather than humans who are just as strong as men. Today, women feel the impact of commercial beauty and fashion industries that shape and rely on “the cult-like worship of what physical attributes the public sees as beautiful” (Dawson). The perception of beauty, distorted in contemporary society through widespread forms of media, causes some individuals to take extreme measures to achieve an unrealistic self-image. However, people lose their identity by focusing too much an outer appearance, rather than allowing inner beauty to shine through.
Physical Attractiveness Appearance matters much more than most people would like to admit. It follows us day to day and it even helps us during important life interactions. The stereotype of “What is beautiful is good” is perceived as attractive people do good things and are considered to be socially desirable. Physically attractive people get showed more attention and are more positively viewed than unattractive people. It’s hard to figure out why exactly that is, though.
The factors of impressing others include many characteristics, such as wealth, power, and talent. People will attempt to improve those factors to increase the attractiveness. The beauty is one of the factors that people usually care about. To pay attention to appearance is more common and understandable than the people thinking. It is because attraction to beauty is human nature and the development of relating technology makes modifying the appearance become possible.
Confidence people have on their body image is important, even without a perfect body. Plus, it is possible to learn to be comfortable with their bodies, which will also increase happiness. Patrick Kelleher from the article “No Body Is Perfect: Is It Possible To Be Happy With Our Bodies When We Are Constantly Being Bombarded with Images Of Perfection?” stated, “Once you start being okay and comfortable and nurturing with your own vulnerability then you can boost your own confidence.” (Kelleher) Boosting self esteem and confidence levels it's hard, but when body image is becoming comfortable it gets easier. Being happy boosts self esteem and is important to feel good. Still, social media is an obstacle with body image.
Owning material possessions basically makes people feel good about themselves because it gives them a way to compare their accomplishments with others. Without security, one could never really enjoy all the love and wealth they have obtained. This is because they would constantly be worrying that it would be taken away. People need to be told and shown that they are loved when they are in love. It is not enough to just have love.
In this case, they need to achieve higher salaries. They compete... ... middle of paper ... ...sation, and hypertrophic scarring are the examples of those complications (Zuckerman, 2005). However, from another perspective, it is somewhat unfair to simply blame the new images of beauty. The problem itself does not rely on the image, but how people obtain it. Those who are trying to reach their ideal body and appearance with the right methods may minimize or even avert the negative impacts.
The first and most popular interpretation of the word “beauty” is seen as outer appearance. On that perception, “beauty” and “attractiveness” have a significant difference even though they are word cousins. A beautiful looking person may be attractive, but an attractive person does not need to be beautiful. One person may look at someone beautiful with “deep satisfaction in the mind” because that person admire how beautiful the other is. Someone, who is not striking beautiful looking, may attract other people just by how they express their personalities.
Inner beauty is much more imperative than being beautiful in society’s eyes. Society has completely changed the definition of beauty. Beauty is so much superior to what the media wants us to think, kindness and happiness are more beautiful and more charishable than most the kind of beauty society says is “acceptable”. Beautiful people find the good in everybody, have a positive mindset even through hard times and seek to find happiness for
