"All that is beautiful is good." Studies show that attractive children get better evaluation from teachers at school. Moreover, teacher descirbe attractive children as wiser children having parents who pay mor attention for their education and are in better relationships with their children. They consider attractive children to be the ones who achieve better results at school as well.

So where is the truth behind? Probably the answer is the overall attribution of more positive character features to attractive children. In general, people tend to be kinder to attractive children, therefore, having received more positive emotional feedback children run across fewer difficulties when integrating into social life. Usually they develop into strong and ambitious personalities as successful interrelation and positive feedback from peers triggers development of strong self-esteem. In contrast, negative feedback from peers may frustrate an unattractive child. If it repeats several times, a child might get afraid of communicating with mates, the integration into social life fails and leads to isolation. Therefore, isolation prevent the child from becoming a strong personality.

Unfortunately, these tendencies transform rather than fade away in adulthood. Attractive people are judged to be superior due to the features automatically assigned to their characters: kindness, gentleness, goodwill, versatility, reliance, persistence, sociability, sexual attractiveness, extroversion, independence, understanding, sense of humour, and endurance.

Good-looking people of the same and opposite sex are thought to be luckier in getting a job, finding better spouse, and leading a fortunate life.

According to psychologists, children with severe facial deformities are emotionally stronger and have higher self-esteem rate than those with mild facial deformities. The reason for this might be the laughter and tease of mates raised for children with mild deformities, which subsequently has a strong negative effect on behaviour and self-exposure to communication of such kids. Surprisingly, children with severe facial deformities seldom reap sneer, as their appearance raises compassion and regret rather than laughter to their mates. Therefore, they are psychologically stronger.
