People with a high level of attractiveness -> seen as more likely to have brighter futures in society
Also believed that attractive individuals -> would lead happier lives in general.
Academics & Intelligence
In Moore, Filippou, and Perret’s 2011 study, researchers sought to determine if residual cues to intelligence and personality existed in male and female faces by attempting to control for the attractiveness halo effect.
Faces manipulated to look high in perceived intelligences were
rated as more attractive.
It was also found that the faces high in perceived intelligence were
also rated highly on perceived friendliness and sense of humor.
Monahan (1941) studied social workers accustomed to interacting with people from all types of backgrounds.

Dion and Berscheid (1972) conducted a study on the relationship between attractiveness and the halo effect.
60 from University of Minnesota took part in the experiment half being male and half being female.
