Unattractive and bullied at work would go together

Brent Scott and his team surveyed 114 workers at a health care facility in the southeastern US about how often their co-workers engaged in cruel behaviour toward them. Additionally, researchers made people, who didn’t know the survey participants, judge their attractiveness from digital photos.

The team found that unattractive workers were treated more harshly than attractive employees even when other key factors were taken into account, including age, gender and how long they had worked at the health care facility. The researchers also collected information on how friendly the workers were, based on questionnaires completed by their spouses, partners or good friends. Employees who are judged by others as unattractive in looks or those who are blamed for smelling bad or also making distracting sounds such as breathing too loudly, even when they don’t show neglect regarding their hygiene practices, are seeming to be treated sternly than the ones who look good. Also, an unattractive person may be blamed for making errors, more frequently than a good-looking one.
