New Delhi :  

People say that having a beautiful heart is more important than being beautiful or handsome, but in the real world this is not true as a beautiful lady and muscular man is always given top priority when it comes to working.

Like money talks, in the same way, looks matters a lot. In a new study, it has been found that beautiful people are paid more than their less attractive peers.

The study appeared in Springer's Journal of Business and Psychology.

The findings that were published indicated that population-based surveys showed that physically attractive people earn more than the people who looks just fine.

"Physically more attractive workers may earn more, not necessarily because they are more beautiful, but because they are healthier, more intelligent and have better personality traits conducive to higher earnings, such as being more conscientious, more extroverted and less Neurotic," Kanazawa explained.

Also, the data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Adolescent Health also offered narrower categories of relative attractiveness, with less attractive participants split into "very unattractive" and "unattractive."

The differentiation revealed an apparent ugliness premium, with very unattractive people earning more than their merely unattractive peers.
The two researchers published their findings in the Journal of Business and Psychology.
