Abstract

Attractiveness levels in a partner could be due to familiarity of the person’s race. As a result, studies have shown those who are of a certain race, are attracted to people of the same race because of their similarities in appearances, cultures, and social standards. I examined two different predictions involving same-race and gender attractiveness levels. White and Latino(a) participants were randomly assigned to rate the attractiveness of a White or Latino(a) model of the opposite sex on a Likert scale of 1-10. The data of this study will be analyzed using a 2x2 Analysis of Variance. Implications of the obtained findings and future directions will be discussed.
