|Abstract: ||Though the psychological literature is replete with information about the perception
of faces presented at a full-frontal view, we know very little about how faces are perceived
when viewed from other angles. We tested impressions of faces at full-frontal,
three-quarter, and profile views. Judgments of personality (aggressiveness, competence, dominance,
likeability, and trustworthiness) and physiognomy (attractiveness and facial maturity) were signifi-
cantly correlated across full-frontal, three-quarter, and profile views of male faces. When under time
pressure, with only a 50 ms exposure to each face, the correlations for profile with full-frontal
and three-quarter view judgments of personality (but not physiognomy) dropped considerably.
However, judgments of the full-frontal and three-quarter faces were significantly correlated across
the self-paced and 50 ms viewing durations. These findings therefore show that perceptions of
full faces lead to relatively similar interferences across both viewing angle and time.|
