MELLO, Joana  and  LOUREIRO, Filipe. Pretest of images for the beauty dimension. Aná. Psicológica [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.4, pp.453-466. ISSN 0870-8231.

In this work, we present norms concerning the perceived association of two sets of image stimuli with the concept of “beauty”: 40 objects (Study 1) and 40 photos of human faces (Study 2). Participants were presented with a set of words associated with the construct of “beauty” and were subsequently asked to judge each image on how much they considered them to be related with this construct on a 7-point scale (1 - Not at all related; 7 - Very related). The interpretation of means’ confidence intervals distinguish between 40 images, evaluated as “ugly” - with low scores on the beauty dimension - (20 objects and 20 faces), and 28 images evaluated as “beautiful” - with high scores on the beauty dimension - (12 objects and 16 faces). Results are summarized and photos made available to support future research requiring beauty and/or ugly stimulus.
