This is how I feel. People have to do things specifically to annoy me and it's never due to how their face looks.
I think that if people do this "they have an intrinsically annoying face and I feel like I could punch them " and it's based on only how that person's looks, .and they've never even interacted with that person, i feel like the person that has the aggression may just be doing the psychological defence mechanism of displacement or projection upon the other person. The aggressor has almost arbitrarily chosen this person to direct emotional aggression at for no reason other than how they look. "They have a face id like to punch". Why? Where is that hostility for someone you don't know coming from?
The face of the kid above looks like a normal, non-threarening face. Nothing about that pic makes me want to whack him.
It's like people on here commonly assume people automatically hate them and they've never even spoken to them. It just comes from low self esteem. I think the person doesn't like themselves and they think other people automatically don't as well.
It's an interesting one isn't it?
I think we all tend to react to appearance, in various ways, an attractive person has an effect on us, an unattractive person has a different effect, some people may remind us of people we don't like, or may look like a villain in a tv show, or might have an unfortunate natural expression that leads to a certain feeling.
We do this automatically, and its unavoidable.
But what is avoidable is running with it and actually thinking someone deserves any kind of hostility based on initial appearance. To do so reveals a lot. To think that someone else has *caused* anger within us by the way they look, and attribute the blame for that feeling to them reveals a lot.
Not least, such an individual should be aware that if they feel this, then others may also feel this, and if they walk around being angered by mere appearance, then they will likely present hostile body language, which will result in others making negative snap judgements about them.
