Well, according to iVillage there is. Apparently people will remember you better if you are ugly. (Does that mean if people remember you easily then you are most likely unattractive?) Read this and see what you think: The Advantage of Being Ugly

Your thoughts?

Say what?!!   I think what makes the most difference in whether a face is remembered or not is if there is something distinctive about it. A crooked nose, a wart, a tiny/extra large mouth, big ears.....those kinds of things.  But mainly because that is what the eye is drawn to.  However, I still believe that we are most remembered by what we do and say than by how we look.     Hey!  I sound almost a ambiguous as that article!!!!  LOL

lol I am not an easy person to forget but always thought it was my size, not my face. I am so much taller than most women and I usually run around with my identical twin sister so we do seem to get noticed and remembered far more than what we would like.

How do you define ugly? It has a different meaning to different people. I think KT is right. You will be remember bu what you do and not so much how you look, unless you are really gross!Foot in Mouth

When I think of ugly, I think I am thinking more about dirtiness. To me, there is nothing uglier than someone who is dirty. Anyone can be considered pretty or good looking if they are clean and properly dressed.
