People of mixed-race are more attractive, unless those judging are thinking about what racial group the person belongs to, University of Otago research shows.
“People preferred blended faces because they more closely fitted a person’s general idea of what a face should look like based on the ”population of faces” they had been exposed to.
”When you think of multiracial individuals as examples of humans they are more appealing because they better capture your overall experience of life.”
But when people were thinking of the blended faces as examples of racial groups their ambiguity ”pulls down their appeal” because they were difficult to categorise.”
