Researchers asked study participants to look at men’s and women’s faces and to rate their trustworthiness based on two features, eye color and face shape.
When it came to men, those who had round faces with larger mouths and chins were perceived as more trustworthy than those with narrow faces.
Face shape did not affect how trustworthy women were judged to be.
But eye color was a big deal for everyone, with a large number of the participants – both male and female – saying they considered people with brown eyes to be more trustworthy than those with blue eyes.
