I would guess anywhere from 35%-50%. If you’d asked me a year ago, when I was still around school, and a lot of college aged kids, I would probably have said 75%. Even people that aren’t great looking, still look pretty good, and possibly look the best they ever will. Now that I’m out in the R.W. and I see more people who aren’t in their 20’s and are tired from life or whatever, the percentage has dropped.
Now, I would say 35%-50% are attractive, but I would say that at least 90% of people have some sort of physically attractive quality. Only about 20% (maybe less) could qualify as doing-a-double-take-cause-a-car-accident beautiful. (I’m speaking of females.) After having typed all this, I’m not even sure. I haven’t tried to quantify it before, maybe I’ll have to start making an effort to be more aware of my superficial/shallow thoughts.
