Does Eye Color Affect How Much You Trust Someone?
Have you ever looked at someone and thought “I don’t trust him/ her”, or said to your self “this person looks trustworthy”? Where did you get that feeling? Was it from looking into their eyes?
A recent study found that many of us think people with brown eyes more trustworthy than those with blue eyes. The study also revealed that other facial characteristics also come into play. People with narrower faces, big eyes and broad mouths with upward-pointing lips were perceived as most trustworthy. These characteristics are usually associated with brown eyes. Experts say this preference for brown-eyed people could have broad implications in politics, business and personal relationships. It looks like you can’t trust round – faced, blue -eyed me!
