Do you remember the website Hotornot.com?
While we don't want to admit how many hours we spent judging anonymous people on that site, apparently there's more to attraction and gender than meets the eye.
According to new research, men agree on who's hot, while women don't.
"Men agree a lot more about who they find attractive and unattractive than women agree about who they find attractive and unattractive," study researcher Dustin Wood, assistant professor of psychology at Wake Forest University in North Carolina, told LiveScience.
In a similar fashion to Hot or Not, the study asked participants—1,300 heterosexual men, 2,700 heterosexual women, 125 homosexual men and roughly 125 homosexual women—to rate nearly 100 photos of men or women on a scale of 1 to 10, from "not at all" to "very" attractive. The participants ranged in age from 18 to 70, with an average age of 28.
The scientists found that men tended to rate women who were thin, seductive and confident as more attractive. Blow us over with a feather, here were were thinking confidence was UNattractive. The Number One Reason Why He Didn't Call Back
