Men with wider faces were more likely to cheat and lie.
A man’s face might hint if he is bad to the bone. People with wider faces tend to be more devious and more willing to cheat, according to a new study.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Milwau kee in US found that men with broader faces were approximately three times as likely to lie in negotiations than their narrower-faced peers to gain more financial benefit. For their study, the researchers carried out several experiments to analyze if men’s facial structure has anything to do with their personality traits, LiveScience reported.
In one experiment, the researchers measured the facial width-to-height ratio of 192 students, 115 of whom were men, and randomly assigned them to play either buyers or sellers role in negotiations over emails as part of a classroom exercise.
It was found men with broader faces were approximately three times as likely to lie in the negotiation than narrower-faced men.
Facial width was not linked to either deception or trust in women.
