Because society tells us that beauty is A, and some people believe that is 100% true. Just because I think that B is beautiful, doesnt make me right, if society says otherwise.
(rolls eyes)Why do you feel people don't believe in the saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder?
Marketing leads us to believe that the beautiful people have everything...better, faster cars; nicer, more expensive, hot clothes; watches that tell you the time for every major city in the world; huge, flatscreen TVs...
Unfortunately, folk fall for this hypnotic draw.
And, it is an ego thing. You must be the bomb if you have a ';10'; hanging off your arm.
In today's instant gratification society, no one wants to take the time to get to know a person. It's sad.Why do you feel people don't believe in the saying beauty is in the eye of the beholder?
Because UGLY is UGLY!!!!!
Because they feel their opinion on what is beautiful or not is an across-the-board absolute fact and not an opinion. What they don't understand is that it's a fact for THEM but not everybody else. So anyone that contradicts their thinking they see as 'wrong' as opposed to just 'different'. It's an indication of small-mindedness.
Because at a physiological level we are wired to notice appearance, and to respond to it.
Brain scans show that people respond to certain stimuli in very consistant ways across the board, which indicates that our instinct is to respond to certain appearances. This is not weird since in many parts of the animal kingdom physical display is directly linked to reproductive potential.
People who live the ';beauty is in the eye. . .'; doctrine do so because they have tamed their natural impulse to respond to appearance.
As human beings we are capable of acting with a rationalization beyond physiological impulse, but that requires us to press beyond our initial impulses attached to any given encounter. For instance, you may meet someone who pleases you at first impulse, but on experiencing their personality you find they are disagreeable. You changed your mind based on further evidence, but for people who please you on first sight, and you never get a chance to know them better, you continue to connect them with your first impulse, which was the neurological reaction wired into your brain.
So I think for encounters that never go deeper than a first impression, appearance is all that matters.
Because everyone is so obsessed in what everybody else thinks. Pretty sad, actually.
Because hot chicks are a lot sexier than ugly chicks.
I don't know,because it is SOOOO true!Maybe they have ';never'; experienced it?!
