study of the self-image: men see themselves more positively than women
In the investigation of the research teams to Solene Neyret nine women and ten men were asked between the ages of 18 and 38 years of age, your own figure to estimate and then draw on paper. Afterwards, the test persons should paint a ideal body. In addition, the scientists took the actual dimensions of the subjects, and then created from the three versions each an Avatar – a graphical substitute for the real Person. Thus, the three virtual characters that came from the imagined, the desired and the actual measurements were created. In the actual Experiment, the avatars via Virtual-Reality glasses were demonstrated, then the participants should find out, which is the Avatar which is the Version of your Self.
women, however, are much more critical with their figure and were considerably wider than they actually are. But if you had seen the avatars in the role of a complete outsider considered, would choose five of the nine women for the body with your actual measurements – and then, once the virtual assistant of your personal dream body. Surprise: None of them held the body by itself had drawn, for the ideal figure that you'd like.
