Question Which of the following is NOT an actual research result that supports the existence of an attractiveness bias? Answer In an analysis of actual court cases, judges were found to give longer prison sentences to unattractive persons than to attractive persons convicted of comparable crimes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
