Beautiful people are more likely to get hired, receive better performance evaluations and get paid more — but it’s not just because of their good looks, according to new research from the University at Buffalo School of Management.

The study, forthcoming in Personnel Psychology, was recently published online. It found that while a “beauty premium” exists across professions, it’s partially because attractive people develop distinct traits as a result of how the world responds to their attractiveness. They build a greater sense of power and have more opportunities to improve nonverbal communication skills throughout their lives.
