Average

It has been shown that most people prefer average looking people over exotic, unique looking people. Judith Langlois and Lori Roggman state that being average isn't necessarily a bad thing. They found that people preferred average faces 96% of the time! This is quite shocking to most people because everyone seems to have a preference for some unique look. Some believe the reasoning behind this is because people who are average tend to have more symmetrical faces. People are known to be more attracted to symmetrical features. I find this research interesting because it is something that people don't really think of too much about. It never comes to a person's mind that the reason they think someone is attractive is because they are average looking.
