Sixth Sense

Going through old posts, here’s a rambling entry about visual stereotypes. Recently, I read about a study that used self-ratings and then visual ratings by large groups of other people to try to see if people can get personality info from looking at a face. It turns out that the correlation is really high, and that by playing with images using computers, according to the correlations they derived, various percieved aspects of personality can be manipulated.

I think I was spot on with my subconscious brain activity suspicions in that post.
