Golden ratio

The golden ratio (phi) represented as a line divided into two segments a and b, such that the entire line is to the longer a segment as the a segment is to the shorter b segment: φ = (a+b) : a = a : b.

Two quantities are in golden ratio to one another if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities.

Criticism[edit | edit source]

Psychologists, starting with Gustav Fechner (1876), have proposed that humans could somehow recognize this ratio in all kinds of proportions and experience it as the most aesthetic proportion. Fechner's historical findings have however never conclusively been reproduced.[1][2] Some have even called the golden ratio "the biggest myth in design", saying it is only coincidental that aesthetic proportions sometimes resemble the golden ratio.[3] The proportions in humans that supposedly follow a golden ratio are often significantly different from the golden ratio.[4]

The golden ratio sometimes happens to be roughly similar to attractive proportions of the human body, such as a man's shoulder width to waist ratio,[5][6] however there is actually no evidence that people find golden ratios more attractive than other similar ratios, even though the golden ratio is often hyped to be the the most attractive ratio. The entire concept is pretty much a myth.
