Good looks make you an 'extrovert'

By Devaki

London, July 6 (ANI): If you are an attractive man or a woman, chances are that you are quite an extrovert.

Evolutionary psychologist Aaron Lukaszewski of the University of California at Santa Barbara asked 85 male and 89 female students to rate their own attractiveness relative to their peers.

The results showed that stronger and more attractive men, and more attractive women, were more extroverts.

And because strength and attractiveness have a strong genetic basis, it appears that we may learn our personalities, and adjust them to situations we find ourselves in over time.

"It's not the way psychologists have typically thought about personality," New Scientist quoted Wendy Johnson, a psychologist at the University of Edinburgh, UK, as saying.

"But it is the way they should be thinking of it," Johnson added. (ANI)
