Want to instantly become more attractive?
Just slap on a pair of sunglasses.
Although beauty is in the eye of the beholder, studies show that people universally look better in sunglasses.
But why is this?
Why are we naturally drawn to people wearing shades?
Well, for one reason…
That’s how quickly your brain forms a first impression.
In fact, according to a study at Princeton University, participants crystallized a lasting judgment about the attractiveness, competence, and aggressiveness of a complete stranger in just one-tenth of a second!

Yet, in the early 1900s…
Does sex sell?
Well, according to a 2014 study out of Johns Hopkins University analyzing which Super Bowl ads generated the most social media activity, press coverage, and “recall” (which is how well an audience can remember a given ad at a later time)…
The answer is NO.
Or, more accurately…
“I was never in his league.”
That’s a quote from Bill Gates, in reference to Steve Jobs’ presentation skills.
High praise, indeed!
Yet, if you’ve ever seen one of Jobs’ legendary keynotes, you know exactly what Gates is talking about.
