I would say it depends upon the individual, it's hard to generalise. Someone might be ugly and not be aware of it, someone might be naturally beautiful and not have altered themselves at all but have a low self esteem. How do you classify ugly and beautiful, anyway? One woman's prince may be anothers pauper.

once you know that you're viewed as ugly to outsiders, then that is when self-esteem issues arise. I say ugly people have worse self esteem because when name calling, the world is more likely to dehumanize an ugly person.

Ugly people are more likely to be viewed as workhorses and not really have their feelings regarded.

thata a toughy. i mean some people chose to be ugly i mean cuz they dont shower, or brush ther hair and ther dirty. if they wanted to they could change that, but most itmes they dont because they dont care maybe ther comftrable like that because they have good self esteem. beautiful people ususally have lower self esteem because they have to try to look beautiful, and they care too much about what people think of them.

but what if you're cleaned up and all but still ugly?

and you know people think you're ugly but have no starting point for change because you maintain your ugly self well...what then?

well, if by an pretty person you mean one with way too much make up, than i would doubt it, but some people are just pretty without painting on their faces for houres

I think that this is such a complicated question to answer, It can go either way. People are complicated, there is no yes or no.
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/9/06 - 5:07:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think an attractive person
15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/9/06 - 5:09:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ugly person.

Personal experience.

15 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Wednesday 8/9/06 - 5:15:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
That's hard to say, I've known both attractive and not so attractive people that have self esteem issues.

I know from many arguments with my friends that everyone has a different idea of what is "attractive" and what is "ugly" so this is a hard question. Anyone could have a self esteem issue. I guess if had to chose I'd an attractive person.

Uglies. no doubt. especially if the attractive person is a woman.. getting dates with hot huys n such.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 10/8/06 - 7:56:17 PM EST (GMT-5)
I bet it doesn't make a difference.
15 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Sunday 10/8/06 - 8:12:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Generally speaking, I'd say that unattractive people would have worse self-esteem. It seems like common sense to me.

Depends on the person.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 10/22/06 - 10:02:11 PM EST (GMT-5)
It depends. My cousins are all very attractive, but they have little or no self-esteem.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Sunday 10/22/06 - 10:02:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
You, you ugly retarded so-and-so.
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Saturday 10/28/06 - 9:48:54 PM EST (GMT-5)
The answer varies by personality.

Ugly. Always. Attractive people are just jealous and try to say they struggle. Not really
15 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Monday 11/6/06 - 9:33:21 PM EST (GMT-5)
Ugly people. Attractive people always whine and bitch about the way they look, but they're just fishing for compliments.

A lot of physically "pretty" people don't even care or try to look good on purpose, they're just "pretty", regardless of what they do or don't do to "prepare" or not "prepare" themselves in that way...

Plus physical "attractiveness" varies greatly, as well as your inner person varies greatly... So I think it depends on how you feel about yourself as a whole, both physical and "non-physical", to have low or high self esteem, etc....

You would think ugly people. But attractive people's self asteem can be hurt more easily by an insult than an ugly person.
15 yrs ago, 4 mos ago - Monday 1/1/07 - 12:35:10 AM EST (GMT-5)
I think it depends on whether they see theirselves as attractive or not rather than if they really are.
