What do the numbers mean when rating someone's looks?

If 1 is ugly, 10 is perfect, and 5 is average, then what do the other numbers represent?

Also, do you ever feel like this is demeaning to people?

  • They asked so it shouldn't be demeaning. If they didn't, then it could. However, they asked us to rate them. I try to be polite as possible. I say "not my cup of tea". If they do feel offended, then they should learn to take responsibility for their words.

  • They mean nothing unless a person is a robot who judges beauty on measurements. Nobody can agree on what a 10 looks like.

  • It isn't perfectly objective, its just in the moment, how attractive you think that person is relative to other people you remember seeing. Like 1 represents the ugliest person you an imagine/remember seeing and 10 represents the best looking. 5 is kinda neutral, like you aren't repusled nor are you exceptionally attracted to them. You could have sex with them but you wouldn't be that excited about it.

    The numbers inbetween are just increments of how close they are to either exteme. So each level above 5 represents increased levels of excitement towards the idea of having sex with that person, while each level below 5 represents increased levels of repulsion towards the idea of having sex with that person.

  • It's pretty subjective. For me, 1 is horribly unattractive/disfigured, 2-3 is ugly, 4 is a little below average, unattractive but not ugly. 5 is average, 6 is a little above average, attractive but perhaps I'm not attracted to her. 7 is I am attracted to this person's appearance. 8-9 is "beautiful", and 10 is drop dead gorgeous.

  • Everyone's numbers are different so it is a silly system
