Abstract

What information, if any, do our faces signal about our genetic quality, developmental history and personality? Most of us walk past hundreds or even thousands of faces every day. Why do most ‘plain Janes’ fail to register, while others cause gazes to linger and hearts to flutter? Are there universal rules of attraction, or is beauty always in the eye of the beholder? David Perrett, who has been at the forefront of research on the human face in recent decades, sets out to answer these questions in this comprehensive and accessible review of the ever-expanding evolutionary psychology of attraction.
