Things to Keep in Mind
(Skip this part if you’ve already read the male version of this post — the following info is the same as what I wrote there.)

- Now obviously, anyone could argue with the exact percentages in the table. There’s no “scientific” reason why each of these numbers should be set in stone, so some things will always be more or less important depending on individual taste.

Here are the components in order of importance:
And here they are in order of attention deserved:
Lastly, here are the factors by attention deserved in pie-chart form:
