1. Iv realised that people seem to respond more kindly to people they perceive to be average or below average looking, but when they come across such a question where the asker is above average, the responses suddenly become:
you're just looking for compliments, you already know what you are…
NOT BY EVERYONE. but AT LEAST one person answers something along those lines.
^^this is especially if the answerer is the same gender as the asker.
okkk that said.
2. for a number of months i myself have been curious of what people think but then i came across the observation (reason no.1 lol) so ever since iv just refrained from asking.
So has anybody else noticed this? and why do you think it happens?
yeah iv noticed this as well on many occasions
92% (11)94% (16)93% (27)Vote
no not really, its not as common as you make it sound
1. Just go on and ask what you want to - Sole purpose of GAG & us being here :) 2. Judging is the common person's trait and let those who want to feel free to do so. You sure get good answers too in the bargain 3. One thing I have been having second thoughts about is about rating people by a number. I though don't judge anyone for why they are asking. How does it matter to me if they are attention / compliment seekers or not & even if they are so what? it's cool :)
I think people feel more sympathetic to someone that is seen as not as good looking whereas they assume a attractive person is fishing for compliments since it is hard for them to see how some who is attractive would not think that they are.
I think you're one of the most attractive people on this site.
I think that if someone is less attractive or they are upset about their appearance than answers will be more comforting, but if someone is attractive then (asshole) users will say they are just looking for attention
Yeah it's basic psycology.. I however don't do this, I vote fairly, however I do have a different idea of what's attractive to most people so I end up voting low the ones that are typically attractive :P
I feel that people are nicer in their responses to average or below average people. People seem to be more rude to above average people probably because they don't understand why they are asking that type of question.
Let's face it, in most cases people KNOW if they are pretty looking or not. So it is true that some above average people ARE just attention seeking and looking for compliments. This reflects poorly on the above average people who are legitimately insecure or honestly just want to know how others perceive them.
Yeah, I noticed this today when answering someone elses question and reading other comments.
And to be honest that really ticks me off just because someone is attractive doesn't mean that they don't have a right to know or know what others think of them. Everyone might not think that they are attractive.
Oh and what about people with low self-esteem? Do they not have a right to know what others think about them?
I find it really petty by how people think that not everyone has the right to ask a question or find some questions dumb.
Personally can't stand those "rate me questions" also I think advice should be to non bias so putting your pic up is taking away neutral ground when people give advice about anything to a user with a profile pic. Like if your having bf trouble and someone pretty has a pic up on their profile people will be like, ah your so pretty he shouldn't treat you that way. And it's like, physical appearance has nothing to do with my question, I need advice! in my opinion
I have. People need to learn to treat people equally in these question. You can't blame someone for being born physically attractive (above average), something they had no control over. you look, how you look period.
