This I Thought was True
People Have A Good Idea Of How Attractive They Are
People have a good idea of how attractive they are. This I thought was true. Did you know we may not be as attractive as we think we are? In an experiment, researchers created 11 images from a photo of the participant on the computer. Some were altered to be more attractive, some were altered to be less attractive, and one untouched. They showed all 11 images to the participant and asked the participant to identify the unaltered version. Most people picked prettier versions of themselves instead of recognizing their original face. In another study with 26,000 people, they were asked to rate their own attractiveness from 1 to 10, with 5 being better looking than half of the people. Almost everyone rated themselves at least 6 or 7. That’s statistically impossible.
Success means being good at what you do and nothing else. This I thought was true. There are two things that most successful people have in common. First, they are masters at their crafts. Second, at some point in their lives, they met the right people who can help them and didn’t behave like a jerk.
