phd student in sociology. your assistance is sincerely appreciated. seriously, the existence of stackoverflow is inspiring.

comment What is the field that studies community responses to incentives?
@prototoast, yes. And you could throw in parts of sociology and political science as well.
comment Are there sex differences in inter-rater consistency of attractiveness ratings of opposite-sex faces?
I would re-title and reword your question. "Do men's opinions of people's attractiveness vary more or less than women's opinions?" I would note also that what people say when asked to give a rating may not be the same thing as how they react to the person in real life. Also, men might agree more about certain aspects of attractiveness, and less about others.
