I10. Can Body Size Influence the Judgments of Warmth and Competence?
We propose that the effect of body size on social evaluation extends beyond the association between thinness and beauty. Specifically, we posit that body size has implications for warmth and competence judgments made by observers: a thin (vs. heavy) body signals competence, whereas a heavy (vs. thin) body signals warmth.
