Abstract: If we were each person to treat as acompletely unique, we would experience a great uncertainty according to social psychology. So, our view of the world we simplify using a categorization involving the organization of impressions through relatively stable schemes. The less information we have, the easier it is to resort to stereotyping,thus we classify the people according to the predetermined criteria based on superficial characteristics, in this case the characteristics of initially unknown men perceivable from a merestatic picture of his face. The following study was initially intended to reveal whether the face of an aging man can be perceived at first glance as physically attractive from static facial photographs and if there is in this respect a common consensus.One hundred and twenty respondents of different age and gender was consistent in the fact that the face, which already showing signs of aging, cannot be seen as a physically attractive in general, and quite naturally they perceived them as sympathetic or unsympathetic. With help of the paired comparison technique using ten individual photos of male faces in the age range of 50–65 years was as the most sympathetic identified the man M10. His photo, from the maximum possible 1080 “sympathetic” evaluations, was as more sympathetic evaluated 847 times. Together with the lowest standard deviation (SD = 1.56) and sampling variance (2.44) related to this photo, we can also talk about a common consensus in the view on the sympathy for this man. Wholly randomly, five clean shaven and five bearded men appeared among the evaluated photographs of male faces, though the impact of the facial hair presence on the sympathy was not the primary objective of this study. It turned out, however, that as more sympathetic were statisticly significantly labeled men with clean-shaven faces (p=4.9*10-6), and that the presence of facial hair in the aging men correlated with the sympathy negatively (rp=-1).
