A Comparison of Achievement Scores in Physically Attractive and Unattractive Students.
Moran, James D., III; McCullers, John C.
Home Economics Research Journal, v13 n1 p36-40 Sep 1984
This study evaluates the reality of self-fulfilling prophecies in the area of the physical attractiveness of high school students. Findings indicate that the less attractive students display higher American College Test and IQ test scores, consistent with a compensatory hypothesis rather than the self-fulfilling prophecy notion.
