According to the short article below, “28 percent of women and 30 percent of men under 30 rated themselves between an 8 and a 10.” Well yes, we are well are that the youthful tend to think very highly of themselves.
What really surprised me is that the poll, which questioned 26,000 subjects between the ages of 18 and 75, uncovered that in fact MOST oxygen breathing Americans would rate themselves a 6 or above on the 1-10 scale of self-reported attractiveness. Now I realize that a “6” is more Ben Stiller than Brad Pitt, but still, we of the U.S. clearly have a pretty healthy self-image.
For some reason, in a time of so much distress, I find this tremendously comforting.
Work that runway America!
