Face Value.
 
How do you see it ?
Marketing and promotion ?
Or is it here to stay forever ?
 
Your view ?
 
I'll carry it further to ask your opinion on the formula for success, in Beauty vs Brains.
 
 
Here is an interesting article on that:
 
Have you ever wondered why guys only choose to date the girls that are either brainless, or have a completely fake personality?
Well, I think that the answer remains questioned. Most guys go after the "hot blondes," not really caring about their personality, and only their looks. I think that this issue causes three main problems. For one, it makes some girls feel insecure, or not "pretty" enough. Two, it gives girls a label on what they should and should not look like. And lastly, it tells girls that we need to reach a high expectation to be good enough.

As we know, the world is not perfect. However, we also live in a very judgmental world. Today, girls are constantly judged on their facial features, they eye and hair color, their body, and more. When guys choose the girls with not only no brain, but a horrible personality, it shows what kind of guy that person really is. Not only is it a shallow act on the guy's part, but it also offends the girls. When girls see that guys are not going to be interested unless you meet certain expectations, they tend to change their features to meet others expectations. Things such as dying hair and acting dumb are two things that girls do just to get guy's attention, knowing that they will not even notice them unless they act that way. Because of all these horrendous acts, girls are influenced to change themselves to the way others would rather them look like.

All throughout magazine's, girls are shown what they should and should not look like. For instance, have you ever seen an overweight person on the cover of a magazine? This example is why so many girls are self conscious, because they are not only constantly judged by everyone around them, but also by guys. I think that guys play a major part in why girls sometimes do not feel pretty enough. For one, most guys do not talk to the girls that they do not feel are up to their "standards." In most cases, personality is the last thing that even matters. Most guys only care about the outside appearance. Even though they say that they look for sweet, beautiful girls, they tend to go for the brainless fake girls instead. Even though guys might say that they want sophisticated girls that are intelligent and sweet, they usually don't keep their word. Unfortunately, girls cannot control the looks they are born with, but it is also up to them weather to change themselves just for the benefit of guys.

Having high expectations is not only rude, but it is also making girls be something they are not. If a guy truly liked a girl, he would accept the way she was and not ask her to change. Even though magazines show that we are supposed to look thin, with perfect hair and a perfect body, girls cannot be perfect no matter how hard we try. Even though on the surface, a girl may act like they are comfortable with being someone who they aren't, they would much rather be accepted the way they are without someone asking them to change just to be accepted. Even though they will not admit it, they would much rather have boys ask them to stay exactly who they are. Sometimes it is difficult for a guy to admit that they would rather have a clueless attractive girl than an average intelligent one. However, if the world only depended on outer appearances, how would problems such as racism or discrimination ever be solved?

I believe that judging girls from their outer appearance is wrong as well as insulting. The next time a guy thinks about rejecting an intelligent girl, I think that they should think about what will end up happening in the long run. If judging continues, it think that not only will girl's self esteem continue to drop, but that they will never feel good enough, even though they cannot change what they were given. I also think that guys should be able to step up and know that judging girls is wrong, and it will only continue to affect girls in a negative way in the long run.

Id say its here to stay till we start probing deeper.
Would be good to have face value as well as some in depth value Tongue
One for promotion and other for retention.

Face value: to accept someone or something just as it appears; to believe that the way things appear is the way they really are?

And if that is the case then NO! Do you really believe in those who would have you believe...

As long as we have the hectic lives we lead: working, eating, sleeping and having some fun quality time in between, face value is here to stay.

That's the problem and that's what makes spin, marketing and promotion at the business or individual level so successful: a lot of people don't have time to see beyond the surface. We use 1st impressions as a filter to decide whether we should invest more time in something. If that something is a product then ho hum: you should be working to get my attention! If it's in reference to a person then it's sad that there's so many potentially good people we'll never bother to get to know...

frankly I had not realised.
But generally in life we are often misled by sweet talking people, both men and women . somehow the brain stops functioning.

I think given enough time the truth will come out and all cosmetics will wear out.
But what is beautiful is often subjective as tastes and preferences do differ.
 
I believe we need a touch of both Beauty and Brains.
Most individuals may prefer (100% Beauty + 50% Brains)  rather than (100% Brains + 50% Beauty). 
 
LOL

Yes we have to be wary  and people can change over the years and friends can turn to foes.
Still a pleasant face has greater opportunities in life, after a while I guess a persons capability will show clearly.
Even a pretty actress has to be able to remember her lines.
