What works like what, Track?

And is it about something working, or a perception that something works?

Life satisfaction in relation to your looks. Its a perception that will probably come crashing down.

jac_the_gripper: Vain - having, or showing an excessively high opinion of one's appearance, abilities, or worth.

Believing that pleasing appearance has value, is not the same as having an excessively high opinion of one's own appearance.

The study doesn't appear to demonstrate that men are more vain (as described by the OP), but that men place more importance on appearance.


I was referring to a comparative study which "found that men place more importance on how they look than women”, I don’t infer that vanity should be defined as a negative within the context of this study. Definitions must be placed in context…. For example, Aristotle stated that the vain have a blown up self-image, but they are not worthy of it. Hume said that "vanity is rather to esteem’d as a social passion, and a bond of union among men.

Bogart_1960: don't hate us because we're handsome. .
Apart from being handsome men can also be intoxicating and challenging and tender. They can build us when we are broken; they can love us when we are unlovable. They can see some inner, complex part of us and believe in it when we cannot see it in ourselves. I would like to believe; our stronger, protective half...... conversing

Deedee123x: Yes that makes alot of sense.
I have always found that men care more about appearances than women do.

Maybe its because some men have only this to get them through life...so they need to care more about it.

Whereas women have far much going for us that appararnce is merely icing on our cake.

Take lets say the typical Essex man who cant pass a refelctive surface without looking in it.

I swear if only some men could turn quick enough they would ride themsleves.

Essex men being an example....i do love TOWIE....its laughable and i imagine quite fitting of the people living there.
Essex man is a special bread that love his own reflexion and would ride himself if he can.rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing rolling on the floor laughing

Don't you?


ttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RVwdLuZYjH0



You walked into the party
Like you were walking on a yacht

Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf, it was apricot
You had one eye on the mirror
And watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain,
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
Oh, you had me several years ago
When I was still naive
Well, you said that we made such a pretty pair
And that you would never leave
But you gave away the things you loved
And one of them was me
I had some dreams, they were clouds in my coffee
Clouds in my coffee, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, you're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?
Well I hear you went to Saratoga
And your horse, naturally, won
Then you flew your Learjet up to Nova Scotia
To see the total eclipse of the sun
Well, you're where you should be all the time
And when you're not, you're with some underworld spy
Or the wife of a close friend,
Wife of a close friend, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain, you're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you?
Don't you?

Re: It's official: Men are more vain than women
MsContessa: A study by the University of Chapman found that men place more importance on how they look than women, with blokes citing appearance as the second strongest predictor of overall life satisfaction. Only financial success was found to trump attractiveness.


So, if a dude attains financial success or sustainable economic stability, he no longer cares abou5 appearance? maybe that explains why I don’t care about how I dress. Grooming is something different in my opinion. And I do care about that.
