The study, based on real-life examples from the pandemic era, reinforced the hypothesis that beautiful people are often credited with positive qualities they don’t necessarily have, including intelligence. Tellingly, both male and female teachers have been found to discriminate in favor of attractive women.

Attractive female students’ grades have been found to drop when they are not physically present and participate in digital learning programs instead, according to a new study from Lund University.

In research, attractive female students’ grades in qualitative subjects dropped during the pandemic, while male students’ results remained unchanged under the same circumstances.

The so-called appearance effect was most visible in subjects where teachers and students typically get to know each other, with lessons structured to involve interaction between teachers and students in a physical environment.

The attractiveness of the students was judged by a jury made up of 74 people of the same age as the 300 students in the study. Subsequently, their results were compared before and during the pandemic.

“Most teachers are men, so it’s reasonable that they mostly discriminate in favor of attractive women. On the other hand, female teachers also gave higher marks to beautiful women, although to a lesser extent,” Adrian Mehic of the Lund School of Economics, the study’s author, said in a statement.

Mehic cited previous research that indicated that beautiful people were often attributed with positive qualities they didn’t necessarily have, including intelligence, and dared that female teachers “recognize themselves” in attractive women, adding that humans are known to treat their perceived peers. better than those they do not consider their peers.

“When teaching was delivered remotely, teachers could not see the appearance of students in the same way as when teaching was in situ. In addition, there are fewer opportunities for interaction between students and teachers in digital education. This resulted in lower ratings,” Mehic concluded.
