Beer Goggles Work in Reverse
Beer Goggles, the way you look through your eyes when you get a little tipsy, it can make a person seem more attractive than they are. New research shows ‘beer goggles’ work in reverse too. Drinking alcohol or even the expectation of having a few is enough to make a person feel more attractive. The ‘beer goggle effect’ , in the past, was known to make people see others as more attractive after drinking but now scientist believe it makes you see yourself as better looking too.
French and Dutch scientists had 19 men and women rate their own attractiveness and blow into a breathalyzer. Results showed the more they had to drink, the more attractive they thought they were. The study does say what we knew all along, the effects of alcohol and ‘beer goggles’ are purely in the mind of the drinker.
