What do you think about external beauty?
do you pay attention to the external beauty, if there is no internal beauty? the importance of external beauty to you?
As for me, first off I look at the appearance of person...it's true. But when I start to to get to know this person more and more and see only emptiness inside, outer beauty is nothing.
Of course, the first impression about people we form by their appearance. By appearance I don't mean only, face, figure, manner of dress etc., also I mean behavior, manner of speaking, sanity, cultural sensitivity and others. Internal and external beauty are halves of a harmonious person.
I think if a person has a only half, he or she should always aspire to the whole, without losing what he or she already has.
I agree, when someone become closer, appearance ceases to interest. Rich and beatuful soul is much more interesting, then outer beauty.
It is the same when you say brain or beauty. They need each other so it will be balanced.
It often happens that some people, having an external beauty, have an empty soul. Maybe they more care about their appearance. But, I'm not deny, I enjoy an external beauty, i'd say it gives me an aestethic pleasure, not more.
I value internal beauty... The most important for me are human qualities
external beauty is like first impression to tht person that we see.generally people will see the face and then the whole physical. and then people will start see the internal beauty by see the way of talking and behaviour. that is my short opinion.
It's true we can't overlook the power of appearance because our brains decide others' impressions in a few seconds depending on an appearance, regardless of our will.
And we DO have a lot of sterotypes on appearances, like dumb blondes.
However, apart from general stigmas, in my opinion, how much we care about our external beauty is deeply related to our self-esteems.
In other words, if we're mentally healthy and very confident in ourselves, we don't care much about our external beauty.
But those who are not confident in themselves and dependent on other people's opinions, they get to care a lot about their appearances.
And these people are relatively more inclined to judge others by appearances because that is their interests.
On the other hand, it sometimes happens the other way around as well.
Those who are not confident in their appearances often get others' words wrong.
For example, a person who got hurt related to his or her appearance in the past could act at normal criticism, like, "This person is insulting me because of my appearance," or, "If I were beautiful, this person wouldn't say like this," such things.
They often victimize themselves because of low-confidence in their appearances and it affects on their thoughts negatively.
So in this case, external beauty makes an effect on their internal beauty.
a lot of us would say that external beauty is not a question or a big thing. Some would say that inner beauty is important.
But I'd like to discuss it by means of how modernity has defined beauty. Thankgood ness for commercialism e.g. TV shows, movies, printed materials (magazine) and yes the mighty internet. This modern generation has been conditioned to see beauty in terms of glamour, sexyness and what nots, all that pertains to what we have been made to perceive.
I think should be good balance of internal and external. The main point of external beauty is, is that person neat. If person is just looking nice, but empty like a shell, for me he will be interesting just for max 5 min. there are people who looks not very good, but shining from inside, i like that very much.
In S. Korea beauty is everything and many young, good looking people make plastic surgery... and lots of pop idols makes plastic surgery too and what a result, they all looks the same and they think that their faces are perfect and beautiful... but i think they become very boring and not interesting, because their eyes, nose, lips, face shape looks the same, all like plastic doll, no personality... they don't think oh i will work hard and make good result, some of them thinking: oh i make pl. surdgery and i will be more success... it becomes big maddnes everywhere
