You are required to post items to the course online discussion forum (see the syllabus for how they will be graded) that add value to the topic that is covered for the week, linking theory to real-world examples. Reflect on the following question:
In previous generations, tattooing was something done primarily by those, mostly males, in the military and only to a small extent (one or two relatively small tattoos, such as an anchor on a forearm). Also, women rarely were seen with tattoos and those were rarely visible to anyone who passed by. Today, tattooing has become a common occurrence and many people display large, ornate tattoos all over their bodies. The attitude toward these body adornments has changed dramatically. To what do you attribute this change? What is your view of tattooing?

The Matching Hypothesis
EFFECTS OF ATTRACTIVENESS
Research shows that attractive students: Receive higher grades. Receive more attention from teachers and classmates. Are judged more positively: attractive children are seen as more
intelligent, more socially adept, higher in educational potential and more positive in their attitudes toward school – even when unattractive children had the same performance.
(Riniolo, T., Johnson, K., Sherman, T & Misso, J, 2010)
EDUCATION SETTINGS RESEARCH FINDINGS
• Teachers engage in fewer interactions with unattractive students.
• Classmates are less likely to communicate with unattractive students.
• Early settings, chronic behavior problem vs temporary problem. • Teachers that dress:
More formally=viewed more competent, organized, prepared, and knowledgeable
Casually or informally = viewed as friendly, outgoing, receptive, fair, and flexible
(Parks, F & Kennedy, J., 2007)
EDUCATION SETTINGS RESEARCH FINDINGS
o May receive more attention, care, and communication from physicians and nurses.
HEALTH CARE SETTINGS RESEARCH FINDINGS
Physical attractiveness superseded a host of other variables in determining liking for one’s pattern and a desire to date in the future.
Replicated study showed strong correlation (.89) between “desire to date again” and “physical attractiveness.”
Physical attractive may be most important when dating involves short-term and more public, rather than private, activities.
For example, in online dating, individuals with lower in attractiveness were more likely to enhance physical appearance by altering their profile pictures and misrepresenting description of their physical characteristics
(Hancock & Toma, 2009; Hancock, 2010)
DATING & MARRIAGE RESEARCH FINDINGS
Not always benefits… o Some men did not seek dates with the extremely attractive women because
they felt the chance of rejection were height and might be limited to physical attractiveness (Reiss, Nezlek, & Wheeler, 1980;
Reis et al., 1982).
o Women average in looks were rated higher when evaluated from a photograph in which they were posed alongside other women who were perceived attractive (Geiselman, Haight, & Kimata, 1984).
DATING & MARRIAGE RESEARCH FINDINGS
DATING & MARRIAGE RESEARCH FINDINGS
Unattractive men who were seen with attractive women were judged as making more money, being more successful in their occupations, and being more intelligent than attractive men with attractive partners.
Unattractive women seen with attractive men, however, did not receive compensating attributions.

Matching Hypothesis – Most people choose partners considered in the same attractiveness category as they are.
• Physical attractiveness influences decisions about who we approach, date, marry, hire, etc.
• Confirmed also in online dating. Self-esteem?
(Taylor, Fiori, Mendelsohn, & Cheshire, 2011)
Attractive men earn 9% more than unattractive men. Attractive women earn 4% more than unattractive women
WORKPLACE SETTINGS RESEARCH FINDINGS
Physically attractive people have an edge in interviews: • Three to four greater chance of being hired for a position. • Sometimes provides an edge when the less attractive competitor is
more qualified for the position. • The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
reported that two thirds of its members, both men and women, wanted cosmetic surgery because they wanted to "remain competitive in the workplace."
INTERVIEW SETTING RESEARCH FINDINGS
Highly attractive job applicants might be evaluated negatively by same-sex evaluators who feel threatened by them (Agthe, Sporrle, & Maner, 2011).
Men who are at least 6' tall make an average salary of $5,525 more than their shorter, 5'5 counterparts (Harvard University Research).
Study polled half of all the Fortune 500 companies about the height of their CEOs. On average, male CEOs were three inches taller than the average man (Harvard University Research).
For every three inches taller, women earn 5 to 8 percent more money than women of average height(Harvard University Research).
INTERVIEW SETTING RESEARCH FINDINGS
Researchers found blonde-haired women generally make salaries that are 7% higher than those of women with other-color tresses. (University of Queensland)
Researchers found that a woman's weight negatively impacts her household income and "job prestige." In fact, a 1% increase in body mass results in a 0.6 percentage point decrease in family income. (New York University)
Attractive people perceived as more persuasive
Greater success getting others to do what they desire, were judged to have better sales skills, were treated more cordially, and elicited more willingness by people to contribute to a charitable organization (Reingen & Kernan, 1993).
PERSUASIVE SETTINGS RESEARCH FINDINGS
Attractive defendants are less likely to be judged guilty and, if convicted, are more likely to receive shorter sentence.
(Downs & Lyons, 1991; Efran, 1974; Kulka & Kessler, 1978; Weiten, 1980)
