Why a manís face can lie but still produce orgasms
Jul 7th 2011 | from the print edition
Who are you calling a wide-boy?
THESE days, physiognomy is an unfashionable science. The idea that character is etched into an individualís face is so much at variance with modern notions of free will that research in the area dwindled long ago. But it is making a tentative comeback. Two recent studies of faces suggest that their features do matter, biologically speaking: they can predict dishonesty and they can provoke orgasm.
The study on dishonesty was done by Michael Haselhuhn and Elaine Wong of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and is published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society. Dr Haselhuhn and Dr Wong wondered if a feature already known to reflect aggressiveness in men (but not women) might also predict a tendency to lie and cheat. That feature is the ratio of a faceís width to its length. The wider a manís face, the more likely he will hit you.
