Beauty intimidating men
As stated in It's Fine For Women In Politics To Use Their Looks To Get Ahead, we all have our own talents, skills, abilities..... If a beautiful woman wants to use her beauty to propel herself ahead in the polls, then why not? Actually, beauty has both positive and negative effects on us.
Chances are she'll be taken more seriously by a male, but not by much.
Some are dependent on the first impression reaction of others to define who they are, ie someone who has it all because of her beauty.
After all, in her mind that may be all she has going for her, thus money is no object when it buys self esteem.
So, there is good and bad with beauty and the real question is what exactly determines which woman will parlay it into success and which will succumb to the dark side? Beauty is an asset, just like physical prowess, charisma, brains or emotional intelligence.
Sometimes the beautiful woman has a bigger-than-life persona; higher than normal self esteem coupled with the feeling that she is special and deserves the best can become a self fulfilling prophecy. The beautiful woman, constantly fawned upon, catered to, approached and presented with numerous options starts to see this as the norm. How some beautiful women view themselves can border on obsessive.
This sets up a powerful self image and expectations for the best. They cherish their looks and play them to the hilt, but if they find a blemish, a wrinkle or a flaw, it can throw them into a panic.
