hotness and haters

In the current study, Park and Pinkus examined how sensitivity to appearance rejection influenced people’s desire for social contact; specifically, how individuals with high Appearance-RS responded to negative feedback about their appearance in terms of their desire to approach or avoid other people.

They find that if someone is too self-conscious of their looks, they avoid contact with EVERYONE, even those who don't care what they look like.
