14) What is your definition of beauty?

Both men and women are made to feel held to impossible standards.
Behind what women see every day.
Based on prior research, my guess is that Mountwest students define beauty based mostly on physical appearance.
Subjects consisted of:
Both males and females
28 females and 9 males
Males ranging in age from 19-28
Females ranging in age from 18-59
Participants were Freshmen, Sophomores, and Seniors at Mountwest
53.6% of females were in a relationship
68.4% were attracted to their partner's inner traits
21% were attracted to outer traits
10.5% were attracted to both inner and outer traits
66.7% of males considered themselves handsome
42.9% because of appearance
42.9% inner traits
14.3% were told they are
14.3% felt that everyone is
14.3% did not answer
53.6% of females considered themselves beautiful
33.3% because of inner traits
22.2% appearance
22.2% comfortable with themselves
16.7% were told they are
16.7% gave no answer
11.1% felt that everyone is
The majority of females said they defined beauty by inner traits while the majority of males defined beauty as both inner and outer traits combined
Both males and females said that physical appearance is important in a relationship
My hypothesis was correct. Mountwest students define beauty based mostly on outer appearance
