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
- no not really, its not as common as you make it sound

Yes, that is absolutely true.
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.1
