Re: Attractiveness ratting system effects on self-esteem
Walkyria post a picture of yourself so we can rate you plz
As an INTP, I must maintain detachment, objectivity and anonimity. I would have posted if I was a happy go lucky SF, but I'm unfortunately not.
Yet, because you are being a nice girl, I'll give you a description of how I look...
I already said I was an 8-9 based on the ease with wich I got women/the comments and positive female and male feedbacks/ also being a former model and athlete. I'm generally tall, dark, proud, sometimes broody, lean and sexy most of times, also I have an excellent sense of style... I guess I come out more as a gay ISTP or gay INTJ more than a dorky INTP(more when I'm drunk).
But anyway, having an excessive positive attribute has always been a negative(looks, smarts, money, INTP ness..Etc) if not managed well or counterbalanced correctly. That's a general law of human societies. And therefore being a handsome man is more of a burden than anything else since men and women react differently to you( I guess it's even more pronounced for the few hot women)... atleast beyond the age of 20-22.( partly because women realize goodlooking men tend to devaluate the best currency they have to offer(sex,love,..etc) ...and therefore they act as spoiled lil brats.).
Back on the subject, there were many scales and rating systems proposed by the manosphere/redpill community it seems:
- Binary scale: on/off; attractive/non attractive; 0-1
- Normal distribution( which I believe physical beauty follows) with around 70% being average.
- 1 to 5
- 0 to 10
There is no clear consensus but I guess the popularization of "the scale" is an indicator of the state of our materialitic (and science prone) society... more money, better looks, prestigious jobs, bigger house, faster cars.
I also believe that the scale has always been part of society's mind( conscious or unconsious) , only it was not a serious thing back then(only assumptions)... I'm sure men always gave more value to the more beautiful women.
To be frank, I never use "the scale" as a metric of beauty in everyday life of course... A wife is not a beauty pageant contestant afterall. Am I right? But what's the point of being with a wife that's barely a 4 or a 5 when yourself you'r a 8 or 9? As an INTP and having an hypertrophic sense of justice, I just can't simply accept that as a normal thing although I see it many times around me... Also, this injustice is one of the argument of manosphere and MGTOW people: most women are becoming prone to princess-mentality and self-entitlement(while per definition, there are only few princesses per land). All this enhaced by the rise of feminazies.
