The decile scale is a scale almost everyone uses to rank looks. The decile scale goes from 1 to 10.

It’s not at all a “crazy incel invention” as scales for rating attractiveness have been around for at least a century[1] and calling someone a “nine” or “ten” is extremely common lingo.[2] The decile scale was popularized by the shitty film “10” in 1979[3] and by the rating website “Hot or Not” in the 2000s.[4]

In detail

In common usage, the decile scale is only about looks as people care the most about looks in a potential partner at first[5] and even though looks are at most only weakly related to other desirable traits.[6] The person(s) with the highest SMV are the 10th decilers: gigachad (male) and gigastacy (female).

People often disagree whether someone is a 5 or a 7, but they agree more about who is a truecel.[7] Nonetheless, a 5 will always be in the 5th decile when averaging many ratings.

PSL scale

Another scale is the (unnecessary) PSL rating scale which goes from 1-9. The “advantage” of an odd-numbered scale is a middle option, but it just ends up confusing everyone. Therefore hardly anyone uses the PSL scale. A more in-depth scale is the percentile scale, which uses percentages. For example someone who is near-perfect in terms of looks, would be deemed a 99th percentiler. Since femceldom and inceldom are umbrella terms, there are many factors through which one could conceivably have arrived at inceldom status, such as a disability (disabledcel), short height (heightcel), etc.
