Personality, looks or just because...

 I was talking to a friend and she said that if a person has looks they get whatever they want. I told her that I disagree because some might not have the look but the personality or a great attitude. 

I told her I wasnt the prettiest thing out there but my personality and attitude might get me a little more than some. She said that people do talk more to me and notice me and I said it was because I talk to them. 

So do people with looks gain more attention than others? Thoughts~

I think it all depends on the circumstance and where you happen to be. I'd like to think that it's not just looks that get people anywhere.

I think certain people who have the look would get somewhere and everything they want, but not always those people seem to have confidence though as well.

I think the more confidence and great attitude will get you a lot further in life.

 Looks mean nothing to me, if there is not a good personality involved. Having confidence and a nice attitude go a long ways, also!

Looks will get you attention at first but if you don't have the brains or personality to back it up that attention will be short lived.   That's always been my philosophy.

What she said. If you're ugly on the inside it will shine through.

I don't agree with your friend, it's not all about looks. I think attitude & confidence has alot to do with it.

I think first impressions mean a lot -- your looks are your very first impression.  In addition, since good looking people get lots of compliments, they also have a lot of confidence -- this probably covers the second impression.  After that, if they have no personality or are not very nice then ...

 I use to work with a lot of men and there was this one guy who yes he was good looking but once he opened his mouth all those good looks seem to disappear.  So for me it's all about the personality!
