NEW YORK – Whatever you think about beauty and attraction, but science has its own view about that, because a team of researchers claims to have found a way to scientifically define it.
Experts analysed hundreds of faces by running them through a computer program to identify the perfect combination of cute facial features.
The formula claims chubby cheeks, a small chin, undersized nose, large eyes and rosy complexion hold the key to cuteness in children – and the theory also applies to adults.
Team from the Czech Republic found people we’re unable to perform the same deduction on women.
Faces that are perceived as highly intelligent are rather prolonged with a broader distance between the eyes, a larger nose, a slight upturn to the corners of the mouth, and a sharper, pointing, less rounded chin.
By contrast, the perception of lower intelligence is associated with broader, more rounded faces with eyes closer to each other, a shorter nose, declining corners of the mouth, and a rounded and massive chin.
It is the first time scientists have devised a formula that defines which human characteristics are considered to be cute.
