  1. 1. How does your appearance reflect your personality?

    1. In my opinion, personality and appearance can have mutual effects on each other. For example disciplined people most of the time wear clothes which are very clean and tidy. In addition, we can to some extent guess the jobs of people with their style of wearing and their general appearance.

    2. Definitely, appearance matters. at first, we mostly are judged by our appearances and later on our personality. Personality is influenced by not manner but also look has an outstanding role. Anyway appearance isn’t well enough to get a real cognition but it has high impact to increase one’s charisma and get more admirable in the society.

      1. Thank you for your reply.

        1. outstanding role in in personality. I mean appearance is a part of personality

          1. I agree. Appearance is one aspect of our personality.

  2. 2. How much attention should we pay for our appearance?

    1. Thank you.
      Correction: Pay attention ‘to’ sb/sth.

    2. in my opinion be decent is very important for everyone and all of us should pay attention to our appearance in a middle level, no superfluousness and no Wastage is needed. be in polite way is more important than any extra make up that we can see in this days.

      1. Thanks for your reply.
        Here are some corrections:
        in my opinion ==> In my opinion
        be decent ==> being decent
        Wastage ==> wastage (of what?)
        be in polite way ==> Being in a polite way
        make up ==> makeup
        this days ==> these days

        1. Thanks
          Wastage ==> wastage (of what?)

          What is the opposite of superfluousness؟

          1. You’re welcome.
            The opposite of ‘superfluousness’ could be ‘necessity’ or ‘basis’.

    3. In my point of view, we should adequately pay attention to our appearance because our appearances is undoubtedly an aspect of personality. Let’s face it, the vast majority of society is influenced by our appearance so having at least a conventional look is what we should care about it. But concentrating too much on appearance is kind of wasting time and resource.

      1. Great point, thanks a lot.
        having at least a conventional look is what we should care about it ==> ‘it’ should be omitted.

  3. 3. Why do so many people, particularly women, undergo cosmetic surgeries these days?

    1. paying much attention to appearance is one thing which is happening in our society. The number of people who go through beauty surgery is much more in comparison to other countries and the number is growing each year. In my idea, such people have wrong thoughts about personality and appearance. Some of them say that by conducting beauty surgery their level of confidence will be increased. some others are seeking for prestige and respect. Except for some special cases, most of them are not in need of doing it. They can find confidence or respect by just being a useful person; for example by improving a special skill; but unfortunately they usually choose the easiest one. There is expectation that by teaching and training we can make some alternation in people’s perspective.

      1. As usual, I should thank you for your brilliant ideas.
        In response to your idea: they choose the easiest one, and at the same time, the most painful one.
        1. paying –> Paying

    2. I think there is a hollow in some people’s character that they feel it could be fill with some acts like cosmetic surgery. In my opinion for this kind of people there is no boundry of self satisfaction and they will not get consent with them selves

      1. Thank you for your reply.
        Here are some corrections:
        1. It could be filled with
        2. them selves –> themselves.

  4. 4. A very old question that all of us was heard.Which on is more important,a beautiful face or a beautiful character?

    1. Corrections:
      1. All of us have heard
      2. which on –> which one

  5. 5- Is it rude to tell the person that they need to improve their appearance?

    1. I thinks it depends on how much you are close to that person.If he or she is your close friend, it doesn’t seem rude but if that person is not close enough to you it might be appears to him or her as an insult and it’s not so pleasant.

      1. Precisely.
        It might be appears ==> It might appear

  6. 6. What are the key features of appearance quality ? and To whom can we say he/she is handsome or attractive?
