Attractive People Are More Likely to be Trusted, Elected, and Listened To

Are there any intrinsic biases that we have as a species that prevent us from making calculated and good decisions about hiring employees? Yes. They are. Mainly — looks.

I will be taking mainly from research that I stumbled upon mentioned in Jonathan Haidt’s book The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion.

It is an incredible book. I recommend it to everyone that will be reading this blog post. It could be one of my most important reads.
