Abstract:

Most studies on beauty have demonstrated advantages accruing to the beautiful person. This research examines the effects of social perceptions of differential perception of beauty; specifically, does one's philosophy of human nature affect perceptions of beauty? Sixty-two men and women rated ten passport pictures on a five point scale from very ugly to very beautiful. They also completed Wrightsman's (1974) Philosophies of Human Nature Scale. Positive correlations were obtained for four of the six subscales.
