Decile

The decile scale is a 1 to 10 scale widely used to rank looks. Such scales have been used for at least a century[1] and calling someone a "nine" or "ten" is extremely common lingo.[2] The decile scale was popularized by the shitty film "10" in 1979[3] and by the rating website "Hot or Not" in the 2000s.[4]

Details[edit | edit source]

In common usage, the decile scale is only used to rank by superficial appearance as people care the most about looks in a potential partner at first.[5] Although easy to use, rating only looks has several weaknesses as a general means of raking potential mates:

  • People do agree substantially about the looks of others, especially at the extremes of looks (the Cronbach's alpha, a measure of internal reliability, i.e. agreement, for attractiveness ratings is typically high, >0.8). However, especially in the mid-range (deciles 3-7), different raters rank the same individual quite differently depending on their individual preferences ("beauty is in the eye of the beholder"). Nonetheless, a 5 will always be in the 5th decile according to the ratings of many, so many however that the scale has no practicality for telling, say, 5 and 6 apart.
  • Looks are at most only weakly related to other desirable traits.[6] Indeed, some women may prefer a male partner not be too good-looking because they perceive attractive men to be arrogant, egotistical, unfaithful, or otherwise low quality mates, though much of this may be virtue-signalling due to a stigma against seeming 'shallow'. Women do take the attractiveness of potential male partners into account when estimating these men's likelihood of being unfaithful, but this trait is apparently not related to men's propensity to actually be unfaithful.[7]

PSL scale[edit | edit source]

Another scale is the PSL rating scale which goes from 1-8. To find out your position on the PSL scale, deduct 2 points from the rating you recieved on the much more common decile scale. The idea behind it is that a man's position on the PSL scale directly correlates with how women perceive him. In the statistics released by the dating site OkCupid, men received much more harsh ratings (81% percent of them being rated as below average looking) by women than vice versa. Thus a male 7 will not actually be considered on par with female 7 in terms of their SMV, but will instead be perceived as a 5.
