Study: Women Think Creative Men Are Just As Attractive As Handsome Men

Study leader Dr. Christopher Watkins explains the results, saying, “Regardless of the sex of the judge, creativity and facial attractiveness had independent effects on men’s overall attractiveness.” He adds the result suggets creativity may compensate for physical cues that indicate lower biological “quality.” Also, the more physically attractive a man was, the less his creativity impacted the viewer of the photos.
