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.
|7th||High-tier normie||High-tier Becky|
|4th||Melvin||Low-tier normie||Low-tier Becky||Inceldom spectrum,|
NEET, sexual frustration
|3rd||Incelish||Semicel||Failed normie||Femcelish||Ugly Becky||Emcel|
|1st||Truecel||Omega male||Truefemcel, Omega female||hikikomori|
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 comprehensive ratings.
This scale does not rank overall human value, but only looks the way humans naturally and automatically do it. There are other more important values like health, ability and willingness to cooperate which do not have much to do with looks (see halo effect).
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.
