Is Evolutionary Psychology Wrong About Beauty? With Professor Richard Prum

Written by

In this episode we talk to author of The Evolution of Beauty, Professor Richard Prum. We discuss dating for beauty or personality.

The evolutionary view of beauty has traditionally been that humans evolved a sense of what was beautiful based on practically. We’re often taught that things like the waist to hip ratio are a long-ingrained sign of fertility to men, which is why we find them attractive.

  • Of course beauty matters. Gold has no value other than looking good and being shiny, humans are pretty much the same today just dealing with different levels of sophistication and abstraction over the very same core principles.

    • Sharif Sourour finally someone with sense. Since the majority of humans are legit average to below average (thanks to the obese epedimic) in looks. Most of society still fall for the personality only matters bullshit. Don't get me wrong of course having a personality is necessary, but lets be real here

    • Humans are attracted to flashy things. Hence, why you guys follow Tai and his promises YET NOBODY has made it. He simply plays on your attraction to that. He gives you general information, and gives it to the masses, he includes a nice car, a pool, or a celeb. If a person had that information, he wouldn't give it to the masses, he'd have one serious protégé and pass it on and keep growing businesses from that. So…the 1M of his subs are the same way, they are attracted to that. I can do that. I just choose not to go about it that way because I'd feel like I'm selling people likes. "Hey, win 500 dollars, just like my IG". Basically paying people to like his IG, without actually paying him. Now…since there's chaos, meaning lots of people liking, they are too busy posting to ask who won. He never gave it away, he never gave cars away.Otherwise you would easily search youtubers thanking Tai for his giveaways. WHILE I KNOW THERE A MANY SUCCERS born often the difference is I have shame in taken advantage of the vulnerable. Others have no problem in selling you a lie to profit. Meanwhile he flashes money, hop is helicopters, take pics by pools, with celebs,to reel you in. If someone is serious about this, do they really have to flash all of this to prove themselves? If Oprah is giving you a tip does she have to sit by her lambo? Just saying

    • You only believe that because that's the exact situation you find yourself in about not succeeding. You don't need to put it on others, but thanks for the attention. 😉 In terms of showing that stuff, it is clearly triggering you hard when he shows the stuff he's leasing or renting. You can follow his content more deeply and see that, especially on the live feeds, he will drop some information gems, and even the non-live stuff he has a ton of videos interviewing brilliant minds, so I just think you've been focused too much on the hype but haven't really delved deep or tried anything yourself, and now you're flipping it and saying that's everyone else's story. Peace.PS. Oprah was on a major network so she didn't need proof, she was advertised and publicized by major television distribution channels.

    • Also you're right that Tai wouldn't give out his best info easily, but he has different levels of information at different price points at different times, etc and sometimes, like I said he'll just do it for free.

  • Maybe us less aggressive humans are only here because the female doesn't want her babies to get murdered so she marries a nice ape but still has sex with the ferocious ape when she wants and the nice ape won't kill her babies with the mean ape? Isn't that how it works in the real world today anyways? Let's say the mom has 3 sets of kids with the husband (nice) ape but accidentally has 1 baby with the mean one cause she wanted sex. This would explain why there are still some ferocious people that women like to have sex with.

    • How many of you dumb fucks actually became successful? How many actually won the cars he's promised? How about the money? Every other second there are these marketers advertising. Like the guy who says "In a second I'm going to go in and buy a new car" or the guy who is in his pool teaching people how to make millions. I've seen at least 6 other ads of people claiming they got rich and they are willing to show you. You guys are stupid and you fall for anything someone sells you. Not one person below has mentioned a success story. He works by selling you fools a dream. and nobody questions it. He shows you flashy things and people and you buy into. Way to go

    • Maybe, but he can change your lifestyle and take better decisions if you follow some of his advice and what he offers; not like it's necesarry to be succesfull, but you're not digging deeper and you're lacking the growth mindset brother. On the other hand, learn from the tactics and 'manipulation' he uses to make money you talk about, instead of pondering negatively about it.

  • Interesting interview but the arguments of professor richard prum were very poor. He sounds like he fell in love with the beauty of things and desperately trys to fight against the idea that beauty is only the product of boring causal correlation. The statements of Dr david buss make much more sense to me

  • Honestly, Tai you are a great businessman no joke! But to think Humans are just animals take the whole rational actions out of the question. Here's an idea Tai, how about you bring a praxeologist and have a non-animalistic conversation. Thanks. Keep up the business thing going though!

  • Husband is asking his young wife: How many men have you slept with before me? His wife freezes silent for a very long time. The man interprets her silence as a result of his rude question and starts begging her pardon, but she suddenly wakes up and goes like: No, no! Never mind! I'm just counting.

  • beauty is the most important thing, beautiful pple have a easier life, get treated more nice, have good sexual life, don't even talk about personality, a gl guy need no personality and if you deny that you are dellustional, do you think women would reject nick bateman or young brad pitt bcs he dosen't have a charming personality? Lol. personality matters only for average guys, if you are good looking or if you are ugly it won't make any difference

  • I have thought about sexual selection and how it can be altered. The case of the peacock is interesting. I imagine a rather small disturbance in the evolutionary pressures acting on them completely altering their appearance in the long run, so the idea of a market bubble seems like an interesting model for beauty.

    Isak Bohman October 21, 2017 11:47 AM Reply
  • This is not true. People did not invent beauty. Its evolutionary nature and humans natural attraction to healthy looking body/face. We perceive fatter people as not attractive and slim body attractive because slim body means good regulation good health. No one wants to pick his boyfriends hanging belly to reach for his dik. Those fat layers do not allow air to circulate and these people smell. Dont tell me beauty is relative. And we refer to normal people. Disturbed psychopatic individuals and groups may like and be turned on and attracted to dirty legs, scat, murder, fat smelling difficult to move womes. but again these are deeply disturbed people. Its sickness. Also tolerating your partners`s belly instead of help him get rid of it is very bad and people get used to the misery instead of transforming themselfs. No matter how much he tries to convince us people will always be attracted to beautiful, healthy and strong body. If you are not beautiful but ugly this means only one thing. You are victim of your own carma is that simple. Your mother did not marry for love and because her partner was beautiful and healthy she sold her self to older ugly man just to be finance security. This is hacking and compromizing the genepool by introducing defect genes. For this reason there are more and more ugly mutated and sick people and beauty is more rare. The growing lack of tit and beautiful people leads to this situation since the beautiful girls are rare they are found and chosen for models and live rich life and are admired like goddesses. They are than offerer but old millionaires to bear children for them the offspring is again copromized and natural selection does not apply hacking does. Pure genetics are vulnerable to predators and everything will degrade on the long run
