Instantaneously Hotter: the Dynamic Revision of Beauty Assessment Standards

We show that beauty is an instantaneously constructed notion and offer a micro-level explanation for how aesthetics change at the macro, societal-level. People non-consciously modify their judgment standards for beauty when exposed to others’ aesthetic preferences, consequently altering their subsequent judgments of beauty even in the absence of social pressure.
