Do attractive people have an advantage in business and in life?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper looks at the perception that people with desirable physical attributes have an advantage in life in many areas such as obtaining better jobs, promotions, having a higher salary and being admired by colleagues. But the advantage easily extends beyond the business world in such people having more sex, being viewed as more confident, trustworthy and reliable. But is it all doom and gloom for those not so blessed? There have been a number of studies surrounding these issues and the author has conducted his own research, all of which adds up to a fascinating analysis of the human character.
