Description
ATTRACTION Brand new love – Serena Ryder 1. Dating: What makes others attractive? • Proximity - how close you are to other people physically; person who you run the most is attractive - The people you run to a lot, tend to be similar with you • Festinger, Schacter, & Back – more likely to be lovers to those people whom you live close to • why proximity matters? Things that we’re exposed to regularly, we actually happen to like them – the mere exposure effect. • Mere Exposure Phenomenon • Physical Attractiveness -the Matching Phenomenon: if you look at people who ends up being together, most were like similar in attractiveness to each other • Walster et al. (1966) - Computer Dance I - in a freshman orientation, the students have a big dance. The Rs matched the people in random but the Rs tell the Ps match them together and found out how would the Ps like their matches. -Who is the happiest? If you’re a 6 (moderately attractive) are you happy with a 9 or another 6? -Everybody had a good time; if the partner is very attractive – they had the best time, if very unattractive – the least happiness the Ps have. * Hatfield et al. (1969) - The Computer Dance II
