What's the psychological difference between attractiveness and beauty?
Why do some people feel attractive even if they don't have model-like features, whereas as others -- like some fashion models, onscreen actors and others known for their beauty — don't necessarily feel that way? At Blessons, we believe that physical features are only a part of what makes a person attractive, and the real question is more about a person's "beauty self-esteem."
You might find this term useful in thinking about how you feel about your appearance. You see, attractiveness is more complicated than meets the eye. It is helpful to remember that beauty is both a physical and psychological experience. Psychologist, Vivian Diller Ph.D agrees it is based on three qualities:
1) How we actually look genetics
2) How we take care of ourselves (health and grooming)
3) How we feel about how we look (positive self-regard)
The combination of these qualities is what we call "beauty self-esteem." Having one of them (good genes, for example) without the others (good grooming or positive self-regard) can lead to an inability to feel attractive regardless of how one appears to others. Along with Vivian Diller, Ph.D., we at Blessons believe that feeling better about ourselves requires internal work, and that applies to our looks, as well. Our mission is to empower women through education, which includes helping women identify their thoughts and feelings about their self-image and find realistic ways to improve upon them. To achieve that goal, we need to understand the cognitive -behavioral patterns we have about beauty, learn how to alter them and then use new ones to support our beauty self-esteem.
