i decided to dress how i normally do, carry myself the way i normally do, and act the way i normally do. the only thing i changed: the direction of my hair. i have been getting more smiles from strangers, compliments from friends, and looks from pretty people. last night i had a revelation that the way i see myself in a mirror was the opposite, or flipped perspective of what everyone else sees. so when i saw hair good, others saw the reverse. which bothered me to an extent. my face, like everyone elses, is imbalanced, certain features are different from one side than the other. and i was extentuating the imbalance of one sides features that were less prominent than the other.
what im trying to get at here is the fact that simple things, like direction of hair, positioning of face, and shading of makeup, simple things, effect how people view us. this is all sounding fake and shallow, but as humans, we seek beauty, and a certain aspect of beauty, studies show is the appearance of fertility in both sexes. now, certain traits are ques that show us fertility, like hip to chest ratio, and height. but facial ques include facial balance. we seek facial balance and people we idolize as beautiful or good looking have the most balanced faces. that is because (this is all from a nature perspective and genetic darwinism) that when ancient peoples would look for mates, certain facial ques would show better quality genes. for example, those with certain genetic diseases, and brain dysfunctions, would have a greater variation in their features from one side to the other. so they would be viewed as less fertile, and therefore less attractive.
anyway penultimately, the way you balance your face could effect the way you attract people. so that was the reason i was freaking out over the mechanics of perspective was because the way i saw myself (fertile and balanced) was not the way others saw me. all based on the direction of my hair. honestly this wasn”t meant to be a shallow post about my personal attractiveness, it was meant to illuminate how changing small aspects of your appearance can change everyone’s outlook on you.
