It’s like beer goggles but in reverse.
Yahoo! Health published the findings of a study that says how much you drink influences what others think of you.
“A new study from the University of Houston found that people rate social drinkers as having the most attractive drinking habit, above teetotalers and heavy drinkers.”
The researches asked about 600 heterosexual people to rate pictures of people. The people were labelled: social drinker, non-drinker, heavy drinker, and recovering alcoholic maintaining sobriety. The subjects were then asked to rate the pictures and socail drinker came out on top as “most attractive.”
Thrillist breaks it down further; Researchers believe the participants based their ratings on their own drinking habits; for example, students who themselves were heavy drinkers tended to favorably rate photos showing heavy drinkers more than other types of drinkers. In other words, the results show that you’ll probably gravitate toward someone who has drinking habits similar to your own.
So if you like to party, science shows you’ll find your forever Frank the Tank.
