Hello classmates, 

A threat to the validity of “attractiveness” is that everyone’s definition of attractive is different. In the study he discusses the average of what an “ordinary” individual’s sentence of jail time would be compared to a counter part that was viewed as attractive. The strength found in the study indicated that “attractiveness” does not truly have an effect on sentencing with only a 0.6 difference. Another threat to the validity of the experiment is the crime that was committed.

Society has tied a lot of an individuals physical appearance to attractiveness. It has become noticeable that the public media has promoted this because it symbolizes physically attractive models, actors, influencers, and other public figures. They have created the “ideal” people someone should be seeking for. People believe that physical attractiveness means a life of happiness, and success but this is a lie. Most people no longer value the internal validity but instead just value the external which results in a life changing situation.
