The Effect of Exposure of Normalized and Idealized Body Images on Males and Females


College students were used as participants to test body satisfaction after viewing an idealized body slideshow or a normalized body slideshow. Each slideshow had 12 close-up photos up body parts, without faces, ruling out any confounds with the pictures. The Scale of the Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Statement and the Appearance Evaluation Scale of the Multidimensional Body-Self Relations Questionnaire recorded the participant’s body satisfaction after viewing the slideshows. No significant results were obtained from this study.
