So my friend and I were talking about how we rate how attractive people are. What we agreed on: - Positive integers only (1-10) - The scale only rates physical attractiveness - The scale must allow for degrees/subtlety (None of that 1/0 stuff ) What we didn't agree on is how most people use the scale. I say that most people use it like an academic grading scale where 7 is the average. She says that most people consider 5 to be the average. I like her way better because it makes a lot of sense but I don't think most people think the same way. Your thoughts?
