Everyone differs slightly in what they consider attractive or beautiful. Do you believe certain attributes are universally attractive? Do you believe one’s sense of beauty is intrinsic or learned? What influence do the media and one’s peers have on the concept of beauty? What other factors influence the perception of attraction?

My answer:

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What might be attractive to one might not to another. There is a little bit of both because some are intrinsic for example, having a race preference, black versus white, big versus thin, tall versus short and sexual preference same sex versus opposite sex. On the other hand, some are learned through association. They either grew up in the environment or learned to love it and by association through hanging out with friends. The media and one’s peers create an image of what beauty should be. For example a six foot tall with a size 0. Therefore, the media and the peer create a false and unrealistic image of what beauty should be.
A variety of factors influence the perception of attractiveness in sexual and romantic relationships. In essence, attraction is influenced by cultural and societal context because one will never be able to know why do some people like abstract art while others prefer landscape.
