Can you imagine that there is an entire science surrounding the study of CUTENESS?
According to scientists, what we perceive as cute indicate “extreme youth, vulnerability, harmlessness, and need”. Apparently this makes evolutionary sense as well, what we determine to be cute INSTANTLY get our attentions, like a suckling baby or a helpless puppy!
Cuteness is distinct from beauty, researchers say, emphasizing rounded over sculptured, soft over refined, clumsy over quick. Beauty attracts admiration and demands a pedestal; cuteness attracts affection and demands a lap. Beauty is rare and brutal, despoiled by a single pimple. Cuteness is commonplace and generous, content on occasion to cosegregate with homeliness. (source)
