Your Best Side

The left side of a person’s face is the most pleasing to others – and researchers believe they know why. James Schirillo, a professor of psychology at Wake Forest University had 20 men and women smile for head shots taken simultaneously from their left and right sides. A panel of 37 judges preferred photos showing the left profile – even when the images were flipped, making it appear that the left side was actually the right. Researchers say that the left side of the face (controlled by the right side of the brain) expresses emotion more intensely. This is probably why Western portrait painters have historically preferred the left profile, especially for women.

Now you know which side of your date to sit on, how to turn your profile slightly toward a job interviewer, and the ultimate use… how to look beautifully glam in all your facebook pictures!


GO with love.
