Abstract

The hypothesis that attractiveness and perceived well-being was tested with 40 undergraduate men and women. The attractiveness measure consisted of a photo of either an attractive or unattractive man or woman presented to participants of the opposite sex and well-being was measured using the six dimensions of well-being from the Ryff scale of psychological well-being. Participants were asked to rate the individual on a scale of 1 (do not agree) to 4 (completely agree) on a six-item scale pertaining to well-being. It is hypothesized that the more attractive individual for both genders will be perceived to have better well-being in comparison to the unattractive individual.
