Physical attractiveness stereotypes and students' perceptions of college professors

, : Physical attractiveness stereotypes and students' perceptions of college professors. Psychological Reports 64(3 PART 2): 1099-1102

This study examined the effect of physical attractiveness of college professors on students' forming impressions of them. 60 high school students answered questions about alleged professors, who varied in physical attractiveness and sex. Analyses showed that attractive professors were (a) seen as better teachers, (b) perceived as more likely to be asked for additional assistance, (c) more likely to be recommended to other students, and (d) less likely to be blamed if a student received a failing course grade than unattractive professors. Female professors were also rated more favorably than their male peers.
