LONDON: Being good-looking really does have its advantages, especially when it comes to a person's pay packet, for a new survey has found that beautiful people earn more than their 'ugly' workmates.

And, the difference is not slight. In fact, attractive men and women earn as much as 15% more than the worst-looking person in their office. Economists James Andreoni and Ragan Petrie, who carried out the study wrote that 'this happens even though beautiful people contribute just as much as other workers.'

"We find a beauty premium even though beautiful people contribute, on average, no more or less than others," the Daily Mail quoted them, as stating. "Attractive people make more money than middle attractive people, who in turn make more money than unattractive people," they added.

The researchers found that the reason why attractive people get paid more is because employers 'expect' them to behave in a particular way.

"The beauty premium is not due to the actions of attractive people, but seems to be due to the expectations of how attractive people will behave," the research stated. As a part of their study the researchers studied three groups of subjects, who were rated according to general perceptions of physical attractiveness.

They noted that while 38% of attractive subjects were judged as looking helpful, only 18% of 'middle attractive' and only 5% of unattractive were thought to be the same. They also noted that such people are more popular and successful.

It's true. Cause in my Psy. class, my professor, who is a doctor, told us about this. Being attractive does have its benefits.
