During a series of experiments conducted by the Columbia Business School professors Ray Fisman and Sheena Iyengar from 2002 to 2004, over 500 participants were asked to have a four-minute first date with other participants of the opposite sex, rate their attractiveness, sincerity, intelligence, fun, ambition, and shared Interests, and answer the question whether they would go on another date with their partners again.
Also, male tended to have more distinctive preference but female’s preference appeared to be more even.Besides, ambition appears to be the only attribute that people think they are what they show.When comparing self-ratings and the actual ratings, it shows that the participants did generally overestimate themselves.Moreover, when the results are breakdown by work industry, I found that while many groups ranked intelligence more important than attractiveness, Architecture was the only group that gave intelligence a much higher recognition.
Before the experiment, the participants were also asked to rate themselves over the five attributes on a scale of 1–10 (1=awful, 10=great), excluding shared interests.
While the oldest and the only participant was 55 years old, 75% of the participants were 24 to 34 years old.
