I heard a statistic, that over half of people, actually it might be around 80%, don't quote me, believe they are above average. Yet, that's just not possible. That would mean that most people are really good looking, but that's not the case. I thought it was interesting...thoughts?

Well the problem with that is that most people have different opinions on what is handsome/beautiful so they might subconsciously think themselves better than average, because "average" sounds boring and plain or something like that. If someone made a poll with defined traits that are desirable and what are not, maybe if let's say 80% of women found 6'1" is the ideal height of a man, then men that were that tall or close to it would probably rate themselves 10s and 9s while the shorter and taller would rate themselves less. But as long as the question is more general than defined, then most people will probably see themselves as above average.0
