Abstract [sv]

Syftet med studien var att undersöka om människor tillskriver andra personer egenskaper baserat på deras utseende. Vidare var syftet att undersöka om sådana tendenser eventuellt påverkades av kön och ålder. 90 män och kvinnor i olika åldrar deltog i en enkätstudie som gick ut på att försökspersonen fick se två bilder på en attraktiv respektive en oattraktiv person och sedan svara på frågor om personernas förmodade egenskaper. Resultaten visade att försökspersonerna var mer benägna att tillskriva den attraktiva personen positiva egenskaper. Dessutom pekade resultaten på att kvinnor i högre grad än män tillskriver attraktiva personer mer positiva egenskaper än oattraktiva personer. Resultaten uppvisade små skillnader mellan hur äldre och yngre personer tillskriver andra personer egenskaper utifrån attraktivitet. I vissa fall skiljde sig resultaten från tidigare, liknande studier. Anledningar till detta ansågs kunna vara diverse metodfel och själva det faktum att undersökningen förutom Kön också innehöll faktorn Ålder, vilket ingen tidigare, liknande studie haft. Nyckelord:
