Perceptions of Men's Faces We are interested in how aspects of face shape affect men’s and women’s preferences and opinions of male faces. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire that includes questions about your age, sex, and ethnicity. You will also be asked to indicate your sexual orientation. This information is being collected purely for demographic purposes. Lastly, you will be asked to rate a series of faces on a variety of dimensions (for example, how dominant you think it is) on a 10 point scale. The order of these tasks will be completely random. You must be 18 years old or older to participate.
