Seeing Attractive Images of Females and Being Nicer

This research finds that incidental exposure to physically attractive female images makes young females act more pro-socially. It is demonstrated that such a tendency is moderated by the level of visibility of the action indicating that the effect is driven by a heightened motive to foster favorable impressions from others.
