This morning Sean and I talked about how hard we are on ourselves when it comes to the way we look.

A new survey by "Allure" magazine on attractiveness had kind of disturbing results -

1.  50% of people say their appearance defines their identity.  That's up from 35% back in 2010.

2.  64% say the first thing they notice about someone is how attractive they are.

3.  61% think their lives would be better if they were more attractive.

4.  62% of women and 53% of men say they're more critical of their looks than other people.

5.  The average woman rates herself a 5.9 out of 10.  Men rate themselves a 6.5.

6.  84% of people are trying to be less judgmental about other people's looks.

7.  The most common thing people lie about is their weight.  The rest of the top five are:  Jeans size . . . salary . . . height . . . and age.

8.  And finally, 81% of people wish they were more satisfied with their looks.

We thought numbers 4 and 5 wer kind of interesting.  Sean and I thought most people absolutely do rate themselves lower than they actually are, so we posted this on our Facebook page this morning -

The average woman rates her physical appearance at a 5.9 and men say they're 6.5 out of 10.Post a pic of yourself here and the number you honestly think you are!!
