A new survey* out today suggests that being told we’ve lost weight is top of the list of favourite compliments. In glancing through the list it struck me that nearly all of the compliments making the top 10 list were related to appearance, and none related to personality or achievement. Is this because it’s hard to pay a compliment that isn’t related to appearance, or because other attributes are valued less highly? Any thoughts?
The Top 10 compliments
1. You look like you’ve lost weight
2. You have a nice smile
3. You smell nice
4. Nice hair
5. That dress really suits you
6. That colour really suits you
7. Love what you’re wearing
8. Your eyes are pretty
9. You look slim
10. You look gorgeous
What’s the best compliment anyone could pay you? Any of the above or something entirely different?
