These theorems include constructs of nonverbal expression, perceived similarity, liking, information seeking, and intimacy, and their correlations to one another. 752 student participants were rated on physical attractiveness by four independent judges, as a measure of social desirability.
Participants were told to fill in a questionnaire for the purposes of computer matching based on similarity.
Longer exposure may have changed the attraction ratings.
People with higher ratings were found to have more harsh judgment of their dates.
It was also found that both men and women were more satisfied with their dates if their dates had high levels of attractiveness.Physical attractiveness was found to be the most important factor in enjoying the date and whether or not they would sleep with them when propositioned.This is often researched in the form of physical attraction.It is also similar to some of the theorems outlined in Uncertainty Reduction Theory, from the post-positivist discipline of communication studies.
Instead, participants were randomly paired, except no man was paired with a taller woman.
During an intermission of the dance, participants were asked to assess their date.
