    When the poll is public, anyone who isn't a total attention whore is going to say they are average. You'd get better results if people couldn't see who voted for what.

    The answer to this question has more to do with how big your ego is and how much confidence you have and very little to do with how good-looking you truly are.

    There are amazingly good-looking people who believe they are rather plain and I know rather unattractive people who are obsessed with themselves.

    It's too hard to know how attractive you are: people are rarely honest with their friends about how attractive they think they are and even less with their boyfriend/girlfriend! And it's too hard to make an objective judgement on a reflection you've seen all your life. So either you make a subjective judgement, reflecting how big your ego is or you repeat what people say about you: but even then you select the comments which you want to hear, thus reflecting your self-confidence once again.

    Whether or not I'm good looking depends largely upon whether or not I have made an effort that day, or how hungover/tired I am.

    So ugly people have no confidence and good looking people do?

    Good, that's the way it should be.

    But I voted average.

    By the way, isn't "not good looking" and "average" kind of the same as far as this poll is concerned? Because surely if you do not vote for "good looking" then you must think you are "not good looking". Sorry for being pedantic.
    haha

    Yes you should be sorry for being pedantic.
