People react to being called beautiful


Shea Glover conducted an independent project, which evidently turned into a social experiment halfway through, regarding beauty at her performing arts high school in Chicago. She wants to clarify that her intentions were not to get a reaction out of people. I was simply filming beauty and this is the result. Here it is.

Why should we have to look for something that a person does to open to non-sexual intimacy? Why go to a party and open a conversation about what they do or like. Why are you afraid to see the beauty in others, which often has nothing to do with physical beauty, and tell them. Going up to strangers and saying "I like your smile" and then walk on by. "I love the colors you put together." "I like the energy you carry." And walk on by. Not a pickup line. Not anything more than expressing a first impression of how someone appears to you that's positive. Are you more comfortable to think negatively about someone than positive. Whispering under your breathe, which often includes a look you get, whether you realize it or not, nerd, pig, dork, butch, emo, homo, fat, loser, stoner, redneck, tree-hugger (and a million more). How about practicing looking for something good you like in a person and tell them? A champ, a friend, athletic, beautiful, caring, cool, generous, gracious, handsome, hard working, humorous, kind, pretty, responsible, significant, smart, special, talented, thoughtful, trustworthy, well dressed, wonderful. Look for positive things in others and tell them and you might realize that you may carry those same attributes that you're finding in others. Now that would be a great social experiment to try.
