Whether we like it or not, others place a high priority on an individual’s beauty. Of course, not everyone is beautiful, and you cannot determine a person’s personality from across a crowded room. Unfortunately, the way an individual looks are counted above all for everything from choosing a life partner, to getting a job.
Of course, everyone wants to look their best, but there are individuals that are born with looks only a mother could love. When it comes to facial symmetry, a Rhinoplasty specialist could be of assistance.
According to experts in the field of beauty, when it comes to feminine beauty, the more symmetrical a woman’s face is, the more attractive she is deemed. The same could be said for males, however, there are other features of a man that adds to his beauty, whereas with a woman, it seems to stop at her face.
What Facial Symmetry Means
Some researchers concluded that facial symmetry refers to the “Big Five Personality Traits.”
These traits include:
Conscientiousness – extravagant/careless versus efficient/organized
Openness to Experience – consistent/cautious versus inventive/curious
Neuroticism – resilient/confident versus sensitive/nervous
Agreeableness – challenging/callous versus friendly/compassionate
Extraversion – solitary/reserved versus outgoing/energetic
Of course, no one is exactly what these terms say. Each individual is a combination of several traits, depending on their upbringing and chemical makeup or DNA. And attractiveness is different from person to person. What one individual believes is attractive, the next person may not feel the same way.
What your parents, teachers, friends, and others you came in contact with during your early years, is what shapes your individual perspective of beauty. When you entered your pre-teen and teenage years, your friends, and media viewing habits helped shape your idea of attractiveness. This would include peer pressure.
A lot of times, an individual will abandon their idea of beauty if another person, a good friend, or even a celebrity, deems that trait unattractive. With the rise of social media, the younger generation is more susceptible to pressure from outside sources for their idea of beauty.
Changing the Way You Look
Often times, it is easier to change a person’s look, with cosmetic surgery, than it is to change other’s perception of a person’s beauty. Many times, a plastic surgeon will ask a potential client several psychological questions about why they wish to change their looks before agreeing to perform a surgery. Or the surgeon may send the client for a psychological evaluation at a professional’s office. This is to make sure the person that wishes to change their looks is doing it in moderation and does not have the expectation of becoming a completely different person.
In the end, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Individual beauty comes from within. Are you a kind person? Do you help others without expecting something in return? Being physically fit and a beautiful physical specimen does not equate to attractiveness in a human being. The most beautiful person in the world may not be physically attractive, but kind beyond all measure.
