After education and experience are factored out, good-looking, tall people simply make more — 5 percent more — than average-looking individuals.
This study was released by the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Not only did they discover that beautiful people make more than average, but below-average looks carry a 9 percent penalty.
There could be several reasons for this. Maybe better-looking people can attract and keep more clients and more business, but that reason isn’t appropriate for every job. The Fed suggests “good, old-fashioned discrimination.”
Full disclosure: My height is below average. As far as looks, well I can only leave that up to other people to decide.
