A scientific inquiry by:
What are the Rules of Attraction?
Ms. Sarah BielanskiMr. Daniel Sigafoos
Ms. Rebecca EllisonMr. James Flynn
We decided to study the aspects of physical attraction, particularly in regards to how facial features and one’s sense of dress style contribute to how attractive they are to the opposite sex.
We predicted that men and women generally look for similar things in each other:
However, specifically we predicted that men and women differ in these ways:
Eye size, color
Hair length, color
Other facial features, including nose size and jaw type
Pant type and fit
Shirt type and fit
Amount of jewelry
The results of our survey showed that, on most of the categories within the facial features list, there was not a significant difference.
However, men and women do seem to differ significantly in their taste for clothing styles and fits.
While we found a few categories within our survey that showed a significant difference, overall, our survey did not prove what we set out to - that men and women differ significantly in what they find physically attractive in the opposite sex.
One of the main limitations of our study was that we only focused on the facial features. We did not focus on more aspects of physical attraction.
We didn’t discuss pheromones.
We didn’t account for homosexuality and bi-sexuality.
