It seems unfair, doesn’t it? Not everyone is born with a pretty face, and yet how you look can have a big influence on how successful you are in life. It’s no wonder plastic surgery is so popular.
Dozens of studies have been done on the correlation between attractiveness and wealth, and they show there is a definite connection. Attractive people tend to make more money, but why?
If you’re good looking, people are more likely to buy things from you because people like to do business with attractive people. There are a variety of explanations for this. One that comes up frequently is the subject of sex. Our animal brains are constantly scoping the world for potential mates regardless of our marital status, so we like interacting with attractive people because our primal senses consider it a means of getting them into the bedroom.
I don’t totally buy this one, though I’m sure it’s a factor. Still, I think a more likely explanation is that good looking people are more confident. They have fewer image struggles and less self-doubt, and other people pick up on that.
When you’re confident in yourself and your abilities, you can appear to be more trustworthy, likeable and intelligent than you really are, and that’s a big advantage when climbing the ladder to success.
