The decile scale is a scale almost everyone uses to rank looks. The decile scale goes from 1 to 10.
It's not at all a "crazy incel invention" as scales for rating attractiveness have been around for at least a century and calling someone a "nine" or "ten" is extremely common lingo. The decile scale was popularized by the shitty film "10" in 1979 and by the rating website "Hot or Not" in the 2000s.
In detail[edit | edit source]
In common usage, the decile scale is usually mostly focused on looks, as people care the most about looks in a potential partner at first.
|4th||Melvin||Low-tier normie||Low-tier Becky|
|3rd||Incelish||Semicel||Failed normie||Femcelish||Ugly Becky||Emcel|
|2nd||Incel (male incel)||Femcel (female incel)|
People often disagree whether someone is a 5 or a 7, but they agree more about who is trucel. However, a 5 will always exactly be in the 5th decile when averaging many ratings.
Decile vs. PSL scale[edit | edit source]
Other scales are the (unecessary) PSL rating scale which goes from 1-9. The "advantage" of an odd-numbered scale is a middle option, but it just ends up confusing everyone. Most incels therefore use the decile scale instead of the PSL scale.
Disclaimer[edit | edit source]
This scale does not rank objective human value. Some people criticize incels for implying they are putting people in lists which dehumanize others. Besides the fact that not only incels use this scale, this scale is about relationships between people and how much society or our natural selves desire certain traits, not about objective worth as a human being.
