As much as we try to deny it, in this society looks seem to matter more than we'd like to admit. We are all human, and we tend to make judgments based on what we see. Sure, after we get to know someone those snap judgments might change but would you get to know someone if they didn't come off well in the beginning? As a sociology project, here are pictures of two different women and a list of questions to answer strictly based on their appearance. (If interested I will update later and give details on each girl to see if those initial decisions were correct or not.)
1. Which one of these women drinks and/or goes to more parties?
2. Which one of these women is in a relationship? (Both of them are straight)
3. Which of these women is a college student?
4. Which of these women looks more friendly?
5. Which of these women would you approach, to ask on a date or just start a conversation?
If you take the time to answer these it will be much appreciated! Thank you so much!
1: A goes to parties and drinks, B goes to parties but doesn't ever drink. (Due to religion)
2: A is in a relationship, B is not.
3: B is in college, A is not.
As for the last two, there are no real answers but both are friendly, wonderful people!:)

I think looks matter more than personality. Id say its like 55% looks 45% personality. If you're really good looking, you are golden as long as your personality is at least average ( not a jerk/bitch , not stupid or really boring). I genuinely believe you're better off being above average looking with an average personality than being average looking with an above average personality.
Actually due to something referred to as "the halo effect" if you are really attractive and have an average personality, the fact that you're really good looking can make people perceive your personality traits as better than if you were just average looking. Also you potentially get away with more things. People often tolerate behavior/ overlook flaws in attractive people that they wouldn't tolerate/overlook in less attractive people.4
