To determine whether infant facial attractiveness is related to perceived adoptability, participants were asked to rate photographs of Asian, Black, and White babies on perceived: adoptability, attractiveness, intelligence, health, proportional eye size, and facial shape. It was hypothesized that (a) Asian babies would be rated highest in adoptability, attractiveness, intelligence, health, and facial shape, (b) that attractiveness would be the strongest predictor of adoptability, (c) and that babies perceived as having the largest eyes would also be rated as most attractive, and most adoptable. The results obtained were partially consistent with the first hypothesis and entirely consistent with second and third hypotheses. These findings are discussed in terms of prior research on facial attractiveness,and adoptability.

Abstract

The facial photographs of 84 heterosexual women were rated for attractiveness by 74 males and 74 females who also made judgements regarding the personality and behaviour of these women. Both sexes judged physically attractive women as possessing more desirable personality traits and also as being more promiscuous than less attractive women. These findings extend the beauty-is-good stereotype, also attributing a more unrestricted sexual strategy to attractive women. This is consistent with research identifying the actual strategies of attractive women. It is argued that both sexes would benefit — in terms of mate choice and identification of rivals — from identifying attractive women as likely to be more promiscuous.
