Are you trying to figure out what kind of drinker you are and if you’ve experienced beer goggles? Then you probably need to know some more about the “beer goggles” phenomenon. Take this quiz and find out more.
Wearing "beer goggles" means that drunk people see more attractive faces after they've had a few drinks. You're more likely to find someone attractive after some beer that you may not find as attractive without drinking. A study published in the journal Psychology of Addictive Behaviours had more than 120 participants. The researchers got all of the participants mildly drunk and had them look at attractive and unattractive people. The drunker they got, the more the answers changed. It was the same for men and women.
The study found that you don't have to be very drunk for "beer goggles" to kick in. Alcohol affects people differently, and not everyone has the same idea of attractiveness. But in general, sober people are more likely to see a person not looking their best while a drunk person may not have a problem with it. The study also showed that sober people were more distracted by attractive faces while drunk people were just as distracted by attractive and unattractive faces.
