Why do we find certain facial features attractive over others? It has nothing to do with survival, like size does.

>It has nothing to do with survival, like size does.
facial balance is associated with better genes.

it must be important since you can glance at a picture like that for 10 seconds and pick out the face you find most appealing. leftmost in middle row. Usually mental processes that are very fast are Important like recognizing danger or opportunity.

>It has nothing to do with survival
It does. It indicates that the individual's genetics are not only within the norm, but close to the average of the population. It's the safest bet for your offspring.

Not him, but there are two types of people: the heavily domesticated -- those who can be conditioned into anything -- they're the ones who screech the loudest about the influece of muh environment, accuse everyone of being essentially like them in terms of social suggestibility (the experience of having any internal reference point for what is normal and desirable is alien to them), and often burst into irrational anger over the concept of a natural order; they usually have abnormal amygdalas, and we have studies demonstrating how this personality type can be created by disabling parts of the brain; then you have the intuitive and instinctual type, whose basic drives and preferences reflect human nature -- they tend to end up conservative, and the range of ideas they can be indoctrinated into is much narrower.
>>
>>14098743
Being average (or close to it) on every facial metric is actually exceedingly rare, for roughly the same reason it's rare to flip a coin and get tails 100 times in a row.

What makes genes "better". I thought evolution wasn't teleological? Do humans have the ability to suss out which base pairs are superior just by the appearance of someone's face?
>>
>>14098869
The eye size of peacock tails is correlated with immune strength.
>>
>>14098869
>What makes genes "better"
Higher genetic fitness.

>Do humans have the ability to suss out which base pairs are superior just by the appearance of someone's face?
Yes.
>>
>>14098543
Eukaryotic sexual reproduction relies on a finely tuned ATP balance of supply and demand between mitochondria and the cell nucleus. Make a mistake here and you're done.
"Attraction" between the sexes is a tell-tale sign that attempts to communicate compatibility before energy is wasted on sex.
I think there are much improvements to be had in this mechanism, for instance if two large eukaryotic organisms immediately engaged in a sex trial and observed the viability of their fetus for a short period of time then the result of the trial fetus could trigger either attraction or repulsion.

Unironically yes. Faces are like a biological checksum.

That is a beautiful way to put it. I'll have to remember the analogy.

It often comes down to personal preference, which leads me to think it could be more sociological. Like, your preferred type may have to do with early experience.
Ultimately I don't think it matters much. If there's one girl around, you'll end up liking, or becoming accustomed to their features.
Celebrities who are revered for their beauty also tend to be ubiquitous because of it. A case could be made that the public is memed into thinking they are hot, in addition to any positive physical attributes they may have.

Textbook case of selection bias.

Attractive genes suggest high-value ancestry and selective breeding.

Celebrities are all fucking trannnies.
I'm serious about this by the way.

Some of the smartest people in the world, especially people like math geniuses, tend to actually be kind of ugly. So I have a hard time understanding attractiveness

>>14099096
It tells you that math geniuses are not essential to your survival.

But it should represent good genes, right? Higher intelligence correlates to a higher chance of survival

Not if you have their unfortunate genetics it doesn't.

Do uglier people tend to live shorter lives?
>>
high disease challenge but a good face = good genes to fight off disease
high disease challenge but an ugly pox marked face = bad genes that poorly fight of disease

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Why do Finnish women look like mutants, scientifically speaking?

close but it is more of an indicator of the person's gene expressions and their relative compatibility with yours.

>>14098719
social influences do not affect your physiological attraction but can add a top filtering layer which can make you reject someone you are attracted to.

never said i had all the answers. but your a fucking assclown if you want to pretend we dont have eons of instinct evolved into our very beings.

call it what you want. we've developed instinct as a survival mechanism to guide us in many ways

You simply have no scientific facts. All your talk of evolution is just your opinion. It isnt denying evolution, just that writing "evolution" in a post doesnt explain anything.
People are asking you a complicated thing and you say "dude evolution". Might as well say "Uh atoms, big bang".
