In the 4 independent experimentations, the researchers asked the participants to choose people in the CVs for a job vacancy on their supposed office to be filled with set of candidates.

There it happened that even people showed the same capabilities and attributes, among male participants they tended to look for the attached photographs of the applicants, if they found them pleasingly handsome they will just ignore it.
