For a democratic country and kapatalistic system we often think people of the Netherlands are lovable and appreciate talent and good looking people. On the contrary Dutch people are often jealous. It's either the talent or the good looks of a female or male but not both at the same time.
The Dutch people seem especially jealous of other people's appearance in any way possible.
Men compare themselves with others in the field of talent. In addition, they compare themselves more than women on work related issues such as career and salary, according to a recent survey by Dutch magazine Nouveau. When talking about the women outside appearance they always switch to other subjects; then the physical. Thereby the Dutch women think if she can do it on the television why can't we do the same in a dress withouth looking at their body sizes and requiring appearance on the television.
The women in the Netherlands can't look good and can't be smart at the same time. Otherwise they get irritated. Rapports have been they are even jaleous on princes Maxima and Yolantha Cabau van Kasbergen. The days that women outside appearance are getting appreciated is out because not all Dutch women have a size 36. Women look more at others in the area of emotional issues such as attention and friendship, but also external things like people's character or style.
Linda de Mol is a good example, not that good looking but a gifted speaker. She can speak herselve out of anything during entertainment shows. Note that there are plenty good looking Dutch women and men but simply don't get the change and are afraid to stand in the spotlights.
