According to a new study by a group of psychology researchers, we make fast assessments of others based not only on their physical appearance, but also on our pre-existing notions about how other people’s personalities work. According to a new study by a group of psychology researchers, we make fast assessments of others based not only on their physical appearance, but also on our pre-existing notions about how other people’s personalities work. Its findings, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, highlight how we interpret others’ face traits to develop personality judgments. “Within a few hundred milliseconds, people create personality impressions based on others’ face looks,” says Jonathan Freeman, the paper’s principal author. Although these impressions are quite trustworthy, they are frequently incorrect,” Freeman notes. “However, past research has demonstrated that facial impressions can predict a variety of real-world outcomes, including political elections, hiring decisions, criminal sentence, and relationships.” Initial perceptions of people can influence how we interact with them and make crucial decisions about them, therefore understanding the mechanisms behind these impressions is critical for developing strategies to eliminate biases based on facial traits that are usually unconscious.”
