Looking for love

Ever wondered if that person at the party is really looking at you or not? If you have been in that situation then here is some information that may interest you. It has been a point of debate in the scientific community as to how we tell if someone is looking at us or not. One side of the argument says that its geometry: we just look at the whites of the others and other features of the face to “triangulate” the object of someone else’s gaze without being influenced by the nature of the face itself. These researchers though thought there may be more to it so they set out to see if the attractiveness, masculinity or femininity of the face, impacted how quickly a viewer could determine the direction of someone’s gaze. Subjects for the study looked at faces with exaggerated male or female characteristics. As thew faces flashed onto a screen the subjects were supposed to hit a key as quickly as possible to indicate whether the face was looking at them or away from them. Both women and men could do that more quickly when the face had exaggerated feminine or masculine qualities. This ability to perceive things about attractive people more rapidly is a handy evolutionary trait as previous research has shown that feminine women and masculine men make the healthiest mates. To be really crass about it, if you are in a bar (assuming that is where you, despite all evidence to the contrary, go in the hope of finding a mate) and there’s a good looking woman or man looking at you then you want to know before her/his attention wanders. It also means that if you are spending too long working out if someone is looking at you then move on, they can’t be that attractive anyway.Meanwhile if you visit Meijer Ad that contains mostly likewise discounts with Winn Dixie Ad you surely have a range like ALDI Ad.
