Is there science behind the way we choose our match or how we rank ourselves in the dating and mating game? According to Discovery Channel’s sensational The Science Of Sex Appeal documentary, while humans may desire supermodel good looks and attractive celebrities that (unfortunately) define the ideal partner, our subconscious abides by an interesting “method” when it comes to who we choose to be with in real life.
In this video, 10 men and 10 women of an “average” attractiveness are observed as they are put in a speed dating scenario, or rather – “speed selection” game.
What follows is an interesting revelation in how humans rate ourselves and each other when it comes to the physical criteria behind choosing our partners.
Based on this video, do you find that its deduction resonates with your real life situation? What do you base your first impression on when it comes to finding your match? Are you drawn to people you feel rank equally with you, people you feel you can settle with or are you one who targets out of your league?
