Is your personality ready for bikini season?


Science of AttractionDid you know your personality could be slimming?

In a 2010 article in the Journal of Social Psychology, Dr. Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic, vice president of research and innovation at Hogan, and colleagues examined the influence of personality information on men’s ratings of the physical attractiveness of photographs of women varying in body size from emaciated to obese.

Their results showed that personality information had a significant effect on the range of body sizes that participants judged to be physically attractive. Providing positive personality information resulted in participants rating a wider range of figures as attractive compared with the control group. Negative personality information resulted in a constricted range of figures being rated as attractive.
