males make judgments about
personality traits from the
female facial features. Using 16
photographs from the first part
of the experiment, 82 male stu-
dents were asked to indicate
the females whom they would
go out of their way to help
(altruistic behavior), and to
choose for such acts as dating,
mating and childrearing.
Interestingly, the results were
mixed. "Women who have the
attractive traits were seen by
men as more bright, sociable
and assertive, but also more
vain and unreliable," Cun-
ningham reports.

Cunningham elaborated on
these results in his article,
writing that "facial feature
measures predicted both flatter-
ing and socially undesirable
personal characteristic judg-
ments..." Of the women in the
photographs, 'those with more
desirable neonate, mature and
expressive features were seen
as being more bright, sociable
and assertive, with less likeli-
hood of medical problems or
sterility, but with more vanity
and a greater likelihood of hav-
ing extramarital affairs than their
Furthermore, he wrote, "Those
(women) with more attractive
features, such as greater eye
height, and smaller nose area,
were more likely to be (objects
of) self-sacrificial and physically
risky actions (by men), or (to be
chosen for) a job, dating, sexual
preferences, and childrearing,
although not for monetary in-
vestments (i.e., lending money).
Such results suggest that the
possession of attractive facial
features may be of survival val-
ue for adults."

Cunningham intends to con-
tinue exploring attractiveness,
and the benefits that derive
from possessing it, although the
area is by no means the only
research in which he is in-
volved. Still, he wants to follow
up his latest experiment with
