y — The softest shoes I you'll ever wear! People Quiz My Smhm E. BOm&m Do Other People Really LikeYou? TriM or Fate: Nothing is more endearing to others than a person who's always smiling; (See number 4) TRUE OR FALSE? 1. The biggest factor in determining whether another person will find you attractive or unattractive is how much you have in common personality-wise. 2. The surest way to turn another person off is to describe yourself in glowing terms. 3. A foolproof formula for increasing another person's liking for you is to be kind and considerate, do him a favor occasionally, and go out of your way to help him. 4. Nothing is more endearing to others than a person who's always smiling. 5. The penalty for being a nonconformist is that you're likely to irritate people and make more enemies than friends. 6. If you gaze casually at someone, while keeping your face expressionless, it will intrigue him and make him want to become acquainted with you. ANSWERS 1. False. As shown by a study sponsored by the National Science Foundation, which demonstrated that "attitude similarity was more important than personality similarity as a determiner of attraction." When it comes to making a favorable or unfavorable impression, your temperament and general character don't carry as much weight as your attitude - your likes and dislikes. 2. False. According to psychological tests conducted on more than 100 subjects of both sexes at the University of Alabama. It was found that, contrary to expectations, you will make a good impression on another person "merely by des­ cribing yourself as sincere, warm, optimistic and confident." The results, it's pointed out, suggest a simple technique for increasing one's popularity. 3. False. Psychological studies have shown that showering another person with kindness and consideration is as likely to place a strain on the relationship as it is to strengthen it. Many people react adversely to the feeling of obligation that accepting help or money from another person often engenders. This may be expressed simply in quiet resentment or, on occasion, in "bite the hand that feeds it" behavior. But interestingly, another study reveals that showing a person kindness often has the effect of increasing your liking for Mm! 4. False. Psychological studies show that a perpetual smile gives the impression of "a suppressed negative attitude." 5. False. Studies at the State University of New York have demonstrated that independent people who don't mind rocking the boat now and then are generally viewed as more sincere, trustworthy and likable. 6. False. Psychological tests at Stanford University show that looking at people in this manner usually has the opposite effect. Instead of intriguing them, it's likely to produce unpleasant tension coupled with either fear or hostility, causing them to wish to avoid you. The investigators point out that a gaze becomes a stare in a matter of seconds. Unless the gaze is quickly mitigated by a disarming change in facial expression, such as a smile, it is likely to be interpreted as a wmm hostile action. till FAMILY WEEKLY, June 23,1974 11 ^And the most comfortable! -featherlight, superbly fitting.
