New Study Confirms People With Straight Teeth Are Perceived as More Successful, Smarter and Having More Dates
First impression last. Contrary to the famous line, “do not judge the book by it’s cover”. Yes there’s an advantage if your teeth is straight and not sungki-sungki (mis-aligned). Particularly if you’re in the field of direct sales or marketing, or to any type of business that deal with direct talking to other people and customer. A beautiful smile is really an advantage. Not just on having a straight teeth in particular. All of us should be taking care of our teeth as presentable as we are, presentable to all types of people we are dealing with. Teeth is just a part of our body but again like what Denis Waitley said, “A smile is the light in your window that tells others that there is a caring, sharing person inside.” Take care of your teeth and always keep a smile.
“From hair and skin to clothes and shoes, one’s appearance is a constant trigger of snap judgments. Whether interviewing for a job or just looking to make a good first impression, a recent perception study conducted by Kelton for Invisalign, proves that even the alignment of teeth is a catalyst for assumptions regarding success, popularity, intelligence, and general health.
“Whether we like it or not, we are often judged by our appearance,” said Dr. Michelle Callahan, renowned TV host, relationship expert, coach, and development psychologist. “The results of this Smile Survey prove what I’ve always believed, which is the importance of an attractive, healthy smile, whether you’re socializing and networking face-to-face or virtually. Your smile has more of an effect on what others perceive about you than you think.”
According to the Kelton study, many Americans say teeth are a standout feature when it comes to what they notice and recall when first meeting someone. About two-thirds of Americans are more likely to remember attractive features than those they find to be unpleasant. Perhaps this is why so many realize a nice smile is important.
“The perception study reinforced the affect crooked teeth can have on one’s social life and how they are perceived by others, including:
Making a Lasting impression: It’s important to have attractive teeth as part of a smile because pearly whites make a lasting first impression. Nearly one-third (29%) of Americans say the first aspect of someone’s face they typically notice is his or her teeth, and 24% say this is also the facial aspect that they remember the most after meeting someone.
Straight Teeth = Success: These thoughts also extend to perceptions regarding an individual’s potential for professional and financial success. When looking at images, Americans perceive those with straight teeth to be 45% more likely than those with crooked teeth to get a job when competing with someone who has a similar skill set and experience. They are also seen as 58% more likely to be successful, as well as 58% more likely to be wealthy.
Love at First Sight: Not if you have crooked teeth. When it comes to attracting a possible mate on a dating site, those with straight teeth are seen as 57% more likely than those with crooked teeth to get a date based on their picture alone.
Crooked Teeth = Dull Social Life: Nearly two in five (38%) Americans would consider not going on a second date with someone who has misaligned teeth. Far fewer would ditch someone who lives with his or her parents (23%).
Straight Teeth = Good Personality: People connect more positive descriptions with men and women who have straight teeth than those who have crooked teeth. Those with straight teeth are 21% more likely to be seen as happy, 47% more likely to be viewed as being healthy and 38% more likely to be perceived as smart.
A Nice Smile Goes a Long Way: Nearly three in four (73%) Americans would be more likely to trust someone with a nice smile than someone with a good job, outfit, or car.
The Want List: Having an attractive smile is something important to many Americans. Close to three in five (57%) Americans would rather have a nice smile than clear skin. What’s more, 87% would forego something for a year in order to have a nice smile for the rest of their life; more than one-third of these folks would give up dessert (39%) or vacations (37%).”
