Summary or Abstract : People's ratings of physical attractiveness are largely consistent across raters and, as expected from an evolutionary perspective, are largely based upon fitness markers (good genes indicators, health and fertility cues). Nevertheless, disagreements among raters do not necessarily indicate errors of assessment. Rather, they may point to an adaptive strategy for maximizing the net benefits of mating effort via reducing the total effort directed toward targets likely to have many more desirable suitors. I hypothesize, therefore, that the typicality of one's judgments of opposite sex attractiveness is facultatively calibrated as a function of one's own mate value. Specifically, I predict that the typicality of one's opinions (visظ--vis opposite sex physical attractiveness) will increase between-subjects in proportion to one's own mate value. I tested the hypothesis in three different studies, using different measures of mate value in each. The prediction was supported for men's opinions of female attractiveness, but not vice versa. These results are most parsimoniously explained as evidence of the hypothesized facultative calibration..
