Facial features can Tell A Man’s intelligence
Obviously, you can judge if he is handsome but is he also clever? Scientists say, you really can tell how intelligent a man is just by looking at him based on a combination of facial features, scientists say (and the key is a long face and bigger distance between the eyes)
A team from the Czech Republic, found that the key is a long face and bigger distance between the eyes. The team used static facial photographs of 40 men and 40 women to test the relationship between measured IQ, perceived intelligence, and facial shape.
“The ability to accurately assess the intelligence of other persons finds its place in everyday social interaction and should have important evolutionary consequences,” the team wrote in the journal PLoS One.
Faces that are perceived as highly intelligent are rather prolonged with a broader distance between the eyes, a larger nose, a slight upturn to the corners of the mouth, and a sharper, pointing, less rounded chin.
By contrast, the perception of lower intelligence is associated with broader, more rounded faces with eyes closer to each other, a shorter nose, declining corners of the mouth, and a rounded and massive chin.
The team used static facial photographs of 40 men and 40 women to test the relationship between measured IQ, perceived intelligence, and facial shape.
Both men and women were able to accurately evaluate the intelligence of men by viewing facial photographs, they discovered.
These results suggest that “a perceiver can accurately gauge the real intelligence of men, but not women, by viewing their faces in photographs; however, this estimation is possibly not based on facial shape,” they claim.
‘Our study revealed no relation between intelligence and either attractiveness or face shape. People can accurately judge intelligence by looking at faces of men, but not women.’
