What do you think the results would be if the following test was conducted.
You get 100 single men and 100 single women.
None of them should know anyone from the opposite sex.
Take facial photos of each person and distribute these to the opposite sex where they would choose the 10 people they'd likely date based solely on the portrait photo and 10 people they definitely wouldn't date.
Take a voice recording of each person where they have to give a 1 minute speech selling themselves (physical qualities shouldn't be mentioned on the audio).
Then have the opposite sex listen to the recordings and again have each person choose 10 people they'd likely date based solely on the sound recordings and again choose 10 people they didn't like based on their sound recordings.
Lastly you'd get 100 different fragrances, maybe 50 perfumes, 50 colognes, and have each gender pick 5 from each group.
What do you think the test results would show??
Would there be a any correlation between someone's physical attractiveness and their 1 minute personality?? Would there even be any correlation at all with smell and physical attraction/personality??
Personally I think you'd be surprised by the portrait photos and the sound recordings, there'd probably be a strong negative correlation, or no correlation, and I wouldn't have a clue on smell because I don't think anyone dates solely on how the other person smells... although I don't think a relationship lasts long if one partner pongs!
And what about touch??
