Riveting research King. Though you need to provide a color chart so we know what you refer to as light, tan, dark. What i find dark may be considered olive skinned by others you see. 

Standardized reference points are needed don't you think.

NumNum and Ninja. I understand all that. Of course there are issues with this resarch. As I said in my second post what exactly is fair? I also know some answers were made as a joke. However I cannot rule on that and have to go with the self-report. 
 
As LP said, the topic here is simple. Answer
 
Do you find dark skin color beautiful?
If we have same features will you find dark or fair beautiful?
If all other things are same, will you marry a dark o fair person?
 
1-Once you answe those I will put you in one of the two groups
 
2-Then to test "NumNum theory of beautivity" I asked what do you consider yourself. 
 
Right now the results are following. I appreciate more and complete data.
 
 
Concordant
Discordant
 
Find fair beautiful
- Miss/Mr. Zephy
- Mr NumNum
- Miss Planet
Find dark beautiful/Do not care
- Miss Laila - I'm not dark skinned
- Miss Aarya
- Miss Hades - coal black as "african"
- Miss Daisy
- Miss Moomin I have a pretty fair skin tone
- Miss Shweta - lighter than the average Indian
- charminggenie
 
ps so far none from the first group has answered what they consider themselves

^^ the question is indeed simple. I got confused as to what I should call fair or dark because I realized what I call tan, others may call charcoal LOL How should I overcome this conundrum?

In the end point is what one person feels about this issue of skin color and beauty and what he or she considers himself or herself to be. Now if one persons idea of fairness or dark tone is different then we cannot do anything about that. I think it does not matter anyway because point is what one feels about 2 categories while belonging to one of the 2 categories.
 
I think I am getting too serious here. lol. The reseach is not apriori. I am doing my best.

Do you find dark skin color beautiful?

Yes. Just as beautiful as any other skin color.

 

If we have same features will you find dark or fair beautiful?

That depends on the features. I find prominent jaw and cheek lines more attractive on dark people. I find dimples or light colors of eyes more attractive on fair people. Muscular sinewy people look better with well tanned skin. The ripples can look creepy on fair people. If someone is slight or daintily built I feel fair is more attractive. Darker people look weird if they are petite.

 

If all other things are same, will you marry a dark o fair person?

If every other single aspect is exactly the same and it boils down to only physical features. If it is a smaller person with dimples and light eyes, I'll pick fair. But if it is a muscular person with well defined jaw and cheek lines, I'll pick dark.

The second group is basically those who find dark beautiful or they dont care or have conditions.
 
This is another way to look at it. I cannot divide it into three groups i.e.
 
fair better
dark better
conditional
 
in the end its about two mindsets. one considers fair as better. other one does not

lol talking about "discordant"Tongue, i noticed following "discordant" notes in your research-

1. page 1=> I answered the questions. I might have even been the first one to do so. So your conclusion above ref me is false. Kabhi toh credit dohLOL

2. the question at the start presented two choices Fair OR dark. Somewhere along the way, we seem to have added a third (Do not care). Shifty, very shifty fox.LOL

so much for folks being able to debate.LOL This proposition or that proposition means mongolians, DNA sequences, both, hmongs. It's really fun stuff, isn't it?LOL

btw, coming to do not care, what is meant by that? Koi bhi chalega?LOL

lol that's amazing logic buddy. The choices presented were:

fair is better Or
dark is better

that's not the same as fair versus everything else, like you have now. Got to work on set theory apart from logicLOL 

and it is about what folks are willing to state in a public forum. I am sure we'll even have folks here who'll say they would kill to have a blackie kid. Talk about some people and what they'll say. Kuch bhiLOL
