That's a bit of a stretch; the study seems bogus.

The headline, perhaps so, but the study makes perfect sense.

Consider: the study relies on self-identification. People who identify themselves as ugly probably have self-confidence issues. Self-confidence issues lead to an inferiority complex, and when you have an inferiority complex, you have a greater tendency to be envious of others and blame others for your problems. That is the mindset at the root of the Occupy movement.

Good analysis.

I think you may be on to something.   :beer:

Seconded -  :beer:

Though I might refine one aspect:

I'd change that to "People who worry about themselves as being ugly probably have self-confidence issues."

It all in perception.

The second point is valid:  there are plenty of ugly people with superiority complexes out there.  Cases in point:  Joe "plugs" Biden and Hillary "fugly" Clinton.

And James Carville, who is currently making a fool of himself on O'Reilly....    :smokin:
