Pretty faces gain children’s trust
Scientists have found that children are more likely to trust adults with attractive faces. The study involved 32 children who were aged either 4 or 5. The children were shown pictures of unfamiliar objects and were then shown a picture of an attractive and unattractive woman. The children were asked to pick who they thought would know the name of the object.
All children were more likely to pick the attractive female – with girls in particular placing more trust in attractive faces than boys.
