goggles: Beer Goggles Effect

Description Usage Format Details References Examples

Description

This dataset is about the effects of alcohol on mate selection in night-clubs. The hypothesis is that after alcohol had been consumed, subjective perceptions of physical attractiveness would become more inaccurate (beer-goggles effect). There are 48 participants: 24 males, 24 females. The reseacher took 3 groups of 8 participants to a night club. One group got no alcohol, one group 2 pints, and one group 4 pints. At the end of the evening the researcher took a photograph of the person the participant was chatting up. The attractiveness of the person on the photo was then evaluated by independent judges.
