Is There a Relationship Between Facial Shape, Health, Happiness and Aggression and Who We Are Attracted To?

Is There a Relationship Between Facial Shape, Health, Happiness and Aggression
and Who We are Attracted to?
 
Yes,  In my book SNAP I discuss in detail how Facial Symmetry is linked to good genetic health. Researchers have also found correlations between symmetry and health, which lends itself to the theory that in looking for a mate, humans and other animals look for those who will be most healthy and free of disease. So facial symmetry makes someone look healthy and that makes them more attractive to us.
What you may not know about facial symmetry and health is how it is linked to mood and other specific health issues. One study found that men with asymmetric faces tend to suffer more from depression, anxiety, headaches and even stomach problems. Women with facial asymmetry were found to be less healthy and more prone to emotional instability and depression. Another study found that the more asymmetric a person's body was, the more likely they were to show signs of aggression when provoked.

What is "facial femininity?" What personality traits do you believe it is correlated with it?

What is "facial femininity?" What personality traits do you believe it is correlated with it? Certain facial features in women are seen as attractive, and appealing and we may see these faces indicating innocence. Symmetrical facial features, large eyes (Theory attracted to features similar to an infants that effects the limbic brain) and larger upper lip than lower lip and red enlarged lips (similar to engorged labial lips) paler skin, glowing skin, skin free of spots and other facial blemishes. (facial symmetry is about measurement; recent psychology research from the University of California, San Diego and the University of Toronto has found that the distance between a woman’s eyes and the distance between her eyes and mouth are very important in whether people find her attractive.  When the vertical distance between the eyes and the mouth was approximately 36 percent of the face’s length, and the horizontal distance between the eyes was approximately 46 percent of the face's width, the students judged the faces as more attractive. This study shows that the structure of faces -- the relation between our face contour and the eyes, mouth and nose -- also contributes to our perception of facial attractiveness. Those findings also explain why sometimes an attractive person looks unattractive or vice versa after a haircut, because hairdos change the face shape thus the ratios."

Stress-Busting Smiles

What is the relationship between perceptions of faces and social decision making?

What is the relationship between perceptions of faces and social decision making? Yes, people form first impressions quickly and make decisions about who they want to interact with or avoid, do business with or hire or date. Research shows that people can form first impressions of threat looking at someone's face within the 39ms “Very first impressions. ”Bar, Moshe; Neta,Maital; Linz, Heather
Emotion, Vol 6(2), May 2006, Shows that for all judgments—attractiveness, likeability, trustworthiness, competence, and aggressiveness—increased exposure time did not significantly increase the correlations.

Also an interesting tidbit is that most people are not attracted to angry faces so it doesn’t give a good first impression but there are some people with high testosterone that are “rewarded” by that negative look and may work to get it. Even teasing someone till they get that annoyed look that rewards them.

Are there any personality traits associated with certain facial shapes or features in men or women?

Are there any personality traits associated with certain facial shapes or features in men or women? Yes, features of masculinity --such as a heavy brow and angular face--somewhat overlap the expressions of anger and the facial features of roundness and soft features--overlap with the facial expressions for happiness so we are more likely to see a smiling face as feminine and an angry face as masculine. (Interesting to note that men with higher than average testosterone smile less)

Burnt Bread Recipe
For a Laugh -After months of friends having me over for dinner as I finished up my book, I am now hosting dinner parties again. My friends looked forward to the bread accompanying the mushroom ravioli I had fixed for dinner. Later, while we were up in my office checking out possible book covers my friend Richard asked, "What's that smell?" and we discovered the burnt pesto bread in the oven. Another friend asked for the recipe so here it is!
Top 10 Favorite Books of 2011
I remember my first favorite book, the one I first read over and over again at the age of 9 "Little Men" by Louisa May Alcott. Yes, I preferred the adventures of boys rather than the mild, and to me hum drum lives of the "Little Women" written about by the same author.
Though I had been a reader before the age of 9 at that particular age I found that my Barbie dolls were boring and my pogo stick and tether ball no longer seemed engaging. Reading became my play, and more than that, it became my way to seek adventures, to travel through time and space, to feast on life. For me books are as essential as air, and food and sometimes more essential than sleep. I would love to know your favorite books.
In 2011, I wrote more, spoke more, and traveled more than in any year of my career. To balance my wonderful real life with my creative life that meant I also read a lot of wonderful books.

Gender Differences in Smiling

Gender Differences in Smiling

I just finished an interview for the Wall Street Journal here is one of the topics I discussed, gender differences in smiling.

Women smile more often socially to be liked and to increase community Men smile less to be perceived as more dominant. Research shows that men who smile less have more testosterone.

A study by Tracy and Beall (2011) in Emotion examined both men’s and women’s sexual attraction to emotions expressed by the opposite sex. By asking men and women to rate the attractiveness of pictures representing different emotions (happiness, pride, shame, neutral) of the opposite sex, the study established that while men are most attracted to happiness expressed by women, women are least attracted to happiness and most attracted to pride expressed by men In a series of studies, more than 1,000 adult participants rated the sexual attractiveness of hundreds of images of the opposite sex engaged in universal displays of happiness (broad smiles), pride (raised heads, puffed-up chests) and shame (lowered heads, averted eyes).

The study found that women were least attracted to smiling, happy men, preferring those who looked proud and powerful or moody and ashamed. In contrast, male participants were most sexually attracted to women who looked happy, and least attracted to women who appeared proud and confident.

"It is important to remember that this study explored first-impressions of sexual attraction to images of the opposite sex,"
 

Men who smile less LaFrance Paluck Hecht, 2003 examine every available study that has been done on sex differences in smiling. Ultimately, they looked at 186 research reports.
They found that women do smile more than men, but the difference is modest. "The difference is there, but it's not whopping," LaFrance said. "Indeed, there are studies that find just the opposite."  Also, the rate at which men and women differ in how much they smile is greater in the United States and Canada than in other parts of the world, like England and Australia. In the United States, there is a greater sex difference among Caucasians in smiling, but this difference virtually disappears among African-Americans.

Smile Personality Type Descriptions

There are four distinct personality types. No one type is better or worse than any other type. Not everyone is purely one personality type some of us are a combination of types. Each type description is for someone who scores high on one particular type. If your scores were close on any of the types read the description for both types to see what characteristics best describe you. You may find that you are a mixture of types. If so, you enjoy having the benefits and talents of more than one personality type. 

Driver-- Your lifestyle is active and fast paced. You are always on the go. You want to get things done. You do all sorts of things at the same time because you think, “Why do one thing when you can do three or four?” You enjoy solving problems, meeting challenges and competing. Your communication style is fast, direct, and to the point. You make decisions quickly. You are impatient with people who waste your time. You tell it like it is. You’re adventurous, bore easily and are willing to take risks. You can challenge the status quo and break the rules. You gain energy from being in charge and meeting new goals. You make direct eye contact and shake hands confidently. You set high standards for yourself and for others. You get things done. 

Supporter-- You are warm friendly and like a relaxed pace. People describe you as loyal, steady and dependable. Your relationships are the most important thing in your life. You are cooperative and a team player and you will work to avoid conflict and get along, even making personal sacrifices to do so. You speak slowly and thoughtfully. People say you are a good listener, though sometime you feel interrupted by others. You don’t rush in, but instead you look carefully before taking action. You are helpful, supportive and nurturing of others. You are the shoulder to cry on and the one who remembers birthdays.  A good day for you is when everyone gets along and you have helped others. You prefer working patiently, behind the scenes getting one thing done at a time.  You like to know what you are going to do every day.  

Influencer-- You are spontaneous and live life to the fullest. You are a leader and you want to be noticed and appreciated for your ideas and what you do. You are social and outgoing. You don't like to waste your time or energy on boring details or the same old routine tasks. You are boisterous, imaginative and playful. You love to share a good story or a bit of humor and you’re your animated voice and body language help you communicate well. You tend to ignore the rules, since you don’t think they really apply to you. Your enthusiasm is contagious and you get the party going and the group motivated. You enjoy a good conversation whether it is on the phone, over dinner or out socializing.  A good day is when you brought out the best in someone else or when someone noticed your talent and work. You are optimistic, charming, a real people person. You want people to like you. You see the “big picture” and can inspire others.  

Analyzer-- You are smart, careful and accurate. You are a deep thinker who considers the details before you speak. You catch mistakes that others miss. You have great insights and opinions, but you don’t always get a chance to express them. You like to read books and other activities that make you think. You like to work by yourself and relax at home, because you enjoy solitude. You like to take your time, play by the rules and wish others would do the same. You have a place for everything and that makes you life your life organized and easy. People may have a hard time reading your body language and knowing what your thinking or feeling because you like to keep your emotions to yourself. Others might consider you a serious person, but you do see and create humor in things that others might miss.  You want to be right and value being seen as accurate and logical. You have high standards and others may say you are a perfectionist.
