Hotness Isn't All About Looks - Don't Forget The Other Senses

Is your desperate ugliness getting in the way of finding a true love connection?

Don’t worry, because a new study has found that when it comes to finding people attractive, it's not all about good looks.        

The study, conducted by researchers at the University of Wroclaw in Poland and published in the journal Frontiers in Psychology, found that humans also place considerable importance on how someone sounds and smells when determining whether or not they’re attractive.

Researchers analyzed more than 30 years’ worth of literature to find an overview of studies looking into the role that voice and scent play in romance. Studies showed that people felt they could guess whether someone was dominant or cooperative through their voice or smell (or a combination of the two), as well as their emotional state or even body size.  

“Recently, most reviews have focused on visual attractiveness, for example, face or body attractiveness,” said lead author Agata Gryoecka. “However, literature about other sense and their role in social relations has grown rapidly and should not be neglected.

Gryoecka added that: “perceiving others through all three channels [eyes, nose and ears] gives a more reliable and broader variety of information about them.”

It’s Gryoecka’s hope that this review will lead to further research into the role of scent and voice in other social relationships, like in friendships.
