well duh.
good looks usually = more confidence.
more confidence = better interviews, job performance, etc.

This pisses me off. I`m a pretty smart person, if I do say so myself, and pretty average in terms of looks.
This means I`ll still get beat out by the busty girl with the pretty face when I get out of highschool. I will get beat out my the busty girl with the pretty face my whole life. Why? Because I have to balls to be smart. Fair? I`d say no.

I coulda told you attractive people get paid more. Physical attractiveness, or at least the perception of it, leads to confidence. Confidence is the most important thing in almost all aspects of life.

Don`t believe it, I`m high IQ, don`t lack for money, and I`m ugly as sin if sin had been bitch-slapped with a wet fish when he was a baby.

I worked at a chiropractor`s office a couple years ago and I actually got to look at my interview sheet after I was hired and I was rated on my looks and personality and that was it. It didn`t matter how much I knew about anything. Granted I was only the receptionist...but yeah, I`m just proving that this is definitely true!

Who DIDN`T know this?! Of course you`d hire the pretty person over the ugly person. Would YOU want to come to work to stare ugly in the face every day?

Oh, I just thought of something: keept the budget size, but give the job to me instead. ^^ Job done in a fraction of the time, same cost. And I will be rich. Btw, I am goodlooking, so I deserve it.

Yet another survey with a budget way above what it would have taken common sense to see around us. Good looking people are more pleasant to be around than ugly people, most of the time.
Big shock.

Thank you pmarren. Now that read the correct link, that Yale study needs work for its retarded. What`s the sample size, what`s the work places? The percentages thrown around by the article are misleading.

Broken. But I already know the answer. Attractive people get paid more. I know from personal experience, because I get paid PHAT
