Women, have you ever looked at a man and accurately gauged whether you think he’s rich or not? How often have you gotten it right? Well, your “psychic” skills might be validated by an actual study that women can tell whether a man is rich or not just by looking at his face!
According to this study, women can accurately scope a man’s income from merely looking at his face for just a few seconds. Wow.
(On the flip side, I guess this is how gold diggers are so successful, eh?)
Tell whether a man is rich or not by looking at his skin
The study says that women are able to tell whether or not men are rich because of their skin and the ‘look’ of their eyes. Men who are wealthy, are said to have healthier diets and lifestyles, which reflects in their skin and eyes.
The study conducted also found that a man’s household income is easier to predict from looking at his face compared to women’s.
‘We found that people are able to detect a person’s mate value through his or her face,’ said the researchers in a paper just published in Personality and Individual Differences, a journal.
One’s wellbeing is reflected in their faces
In general, people with money tend to live happier, less anxious lives compared to those struggling to make ends meet, says R. Thora Bjornsdottir, co-author of the study. It was also demonstrated “that these well-being differences are actually reflected in people’s faces.”
The study involved gray-scale photographs of 80 white males and 80 white females, half of which earned $150,000 a year, which they designated as upper class. The other half were people who made under $35,000, or ‘working class’.
Subjects were then asked to guess the class of the people in the photos, and the results showed a 68 percent chance of getting it right.
But she wanted to know why, however, the answer could not be given. “If you ask them why, they don’t know. They are not aware of how they are doing this.”
Do you know how to tell whether a man is rich or not just by looking at his face? Give it a shot and see if you’re right!
