Today’s goo Ranking is a look at what over-calculating behaviour revealing the true state of women puts people right off. Of course, if there is also a male version published, I’ll be sure to post that too.
A couple of months ago there was an entertainment program on the television looking at models and their SNS behaviour; there was a fad for posting no-makeup selfies, but it didn’t stop most (all?) of them using skin-smoothing or eye-widening apps, and in one case even turning her extremely square jaw into a tapered point. For myself, I can guarantee that all my no-make selfies are un-retouched…
That number 10 about wanting to appear to have mental health issues seems to be a mental health issue in itself!
Here’s Duck Face in Osaka:

goo Rankings asked iBRIDGE’s Research Plus to conduct this survey, where between the 8th and 13th of September 2016 250 male members aged between 20 and 39 of their monitor group completed a private internet-based questionnaire. Sadly, there is no breakdown by the sexes.
