Reading and Vocabulary

Why Appearance Is Important

We are all more concerned with our appearance. For most of us, this concern is not
simply vanity. Vanity means having too much pride in one's appearance. On the other
hand, concern about appearance is quite understandable because attractive people have
many advantages in our society. According to the Social Issues Research Centre in Oxford,
England, studies show that: 1. Attractive children are more popular; 2. Teachers give
attractive children better grades;3. Attractive job applicants have a better chance of
getting hired. They also get higher salaries;4. People generally believe that physically
attractive people have other desirable characteristics such as intelligence, competence,
confidence, and morality. (The good princess is always beautiful; the wicked stepmother
is always ugly.)
Therefore, it is not surprising that physical attraction is of great importance to us.
This concern with appearance did not begin with modern Western culture. Every period of
history has had standards of beauty. For example, one hundred years ago in China,
people thought that women should have very small feet. To achieve this ideal, girls had
their feet bound to stop their natural growth. However, even though appearance has
been important in every age and every culture, it has not always been as important as it
is today. Western societies today are obsessed with physical appearance. Some people
believe that science and the media have caused this obsession.
Look at the following questions, then answer Yes or No into the right column.
