ASHLEE NEVITT, JUNIOR, ASU

How important is physical attractiveness to you in yourself? In other people?
I do think it’s important to represent ourselves in a good way, but as far as physical attractiveness, I think it’s much more important [to focus on]who you are inside and how you live than what you look like on the outside. For others, there is a huge emphasis put on physical attractiveness throughout the world or especially in this country, I guess. But we make a bigger deal out of it than it should be. We should focus [more]on what’s inside than what’s on the outside.

Do you believe that beauty is completely subjective or that there are some things that all humans will find attractive?
I think for the most part it is subjective. For most of time, we humans have had the ability to recognize confident people, kind people or genuine people and that’s attractive to everyone.

Is beauty strictly sight-based or can you sense beauty in other ways as well?
I think you sense it in other ways. If you are blind and talk to someone, you can tell how they care about themselves and feel about themselves, their confidence and how genuine they are . . . There is a way to sense that inner beauty besides sight.

How important is physical attractiveness to you in yourself? In other people?
For me, I’m in a relationship, and I think you should be attracted to whoever it is. Everyone has their own personal preference, but to me, it’s not the most important thing. Yet, I still have to be attracted to them in terms of relationship. For others, a lot of people genuinely think beauty is the number one thing, especially for males and the ways they were taught—stereotypes.

Do you believe that beauty is completely subjective or that there are some things that all humans will find attractive?
It’s probably a little bit [of]both. For example, if someone can have a kid, that’s a universal attraction, at least for heterosexual people, but it does get subjective for the rest of the attributes. There are few universal attractions, not a lot.

Is beauty strictly sight-based or can you sense beauty in other ways as well?
I think it’s a little [of]both again. Sight-based is definitely the [main]thing when you just see someone. Then, when you get to know them, their personality can be also a beautiful thing. You can find hundreds of people, but when you get to know them more, you are like, “Oh, not really. Now, I know who they are and I don’t agree with what they say, or how they are, and how they treat others.”
