Poor self-image[ edit ] Poor self-image may be the result of accumulated criticisms that the person collected as a child which have led to damaging their own view of themselves. Children in particular are vulnerable to accepting negative judgments from authority figures because they have yet to develop competency in evaluating such reports.
The Rules Revisited I've dated countless women and it has always amazed me how little they know about men. If nothing else, this blog is an outlet for voicing my astonishment at the typical female's ignorance of the male mindset.
At most, it is a reliable source of advice for women who want to improve their chances with the opposite sex. The topic is avoided because women do not realize how controllable their appearance is.
However, the notion that a woman's attractiveness is anything less than highly controllable is patently false.
Time and time again, I see the same thing: Women that are unfit Women that do not present themselves well Hopefully you noticed something important about this list: Obviously, natural good looks cannot be overlooked, but they are given far more credit than they deserve.
It is the height of hyperbole - you might even say a myth - that women are either born attractive or not. The result of this effort is shown in the table below.
By clicking on the table or pie charts you can enlarge them.
The controllability ratings for these items are a guess at the average between those extremes, based on the frequency of occurrence. This can be reasonably interpreted as the percentage of the total time spent on her appearance a girl should devote to each item in need of attention.
Obviously, no one is going to count the minutes or hours. The point, though, is that some things are worth spending more time on than others. I've also put the data into a few pie charts.
This is what you should care about Importance Rating: That being said, while men will all disagree over the minutiae of female beauty, few will disagree with the important aspects. This post should give you a solid idea of what matters to most guys, and how much.
While the numbers speak for themselves, I want to highlight one main point: This means that if a girl is not opting to do these things, she is missing out on 1. This is the driving point behind this "analysis," expressed numerically.
If you take nothing else away from this post, remember this. It means that you are in control of your appearance far more than you think. It means that the time and effort you put into your appearance will produce results. Do not worry if your gut tells you otherwise; your gut is informed by beauty pageants and " Hottest Women" lists, and a thousand other influences that both reinforce and reflect the notion that beauty is a matter of winning the genetic gene pool - i.
If you present yourself well and get in great shape, you will be above average.
And for those of you that are naturally about average, the sky's your limit. In other words, there is very little about your appearance that cannot be improved. One final pie chart to summarize these three points: Far too many women fail to recognize the leverage they have over their own appearance.

Self-image is the mental picture, generally of a kind that is quite resistant to change, that depicts not only details that are potentially available to objective investigation by others (height, weight, hair color, etc.), but also items that have been learned by that person about themself, either from personal experiences or by internalizing the judgments of others.
