A study found that men agree on what kind of women they found attractive, while women had different opinions on what an attractive man looked like.
The research, co-authored by Claudia Brumbaugh of Queens College studied over 4,000 participants, who were asked to rate photographs of men and women aged between 18 and 25.
"Men agree a lot more about who they find attractive and unattractive than women agree about who they find attractive and unattractive," says Wood, assistant professor of psychology. "This study shows we can quantify the extent to which men agree about which women are attractivve and vice versa."
The study revealed that men agreed that women are attractive if they looked thin and seductive, and women who looked confident seemed to be more attractive to them.
The women in the study however, seemed to show a preference for thin, muscular subjects, but disagreed on how attractive the men were. Some women gave hich attractiveness ratings to the men, while other women thought they weren't attractive at all.
