Scientists Reveal the Secret of Male Evaluating Views

Only a beloved can have such unusual eyes

Most of us are sure: a man, having seen a woman, first of all looks at her breasts, in the second - a little lower than his back. Or in the opposite sequence. And a woman, looking at a man, estimates how bulging his buttocks are, broad shoulders. It would seem that there can be doubts. However, they arose when British scientists unveiled the results of their recent study. A thousand men and as many women participated in it.

Volunteers told - very frankly, according to their assurances - about where they are looking their evaluating views in the first place, in the second and so on. And then it turned out how great our errors.

Take a look at the study chart. In the male evaluating look, the female breast, it turns out, occupies only the third place, and the ass did not even enter the top five.

What about women? Men's buttocks are nothing for them at all - they are in the infamous ninth place. The notorious shoulder width is on the sixth.

The leaders of both sexes have the same thing - eyes and a smile.

Ученые раскрыли тайну мужских оценивающих взглядов

And how are you guys not ashamed

"Let me not believe you!" - their American colleagues from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln could tell British scientists. Professor Sarah Gervais did not trust the words, but applied an impartial technique.

Giving some - very short - time to look at the images of men and women, the researcher put on special eyelink II masks with sensors on the subjects, which made it possible to determine the duration of looks and their direction.

The analysis showed that a woman’s face is the last place men look when evaluating a stranger. Accordingly, the eyes located on the face are of little interest to them.

All, without exception, representatives of the stronger sex who participated in the experiments, their own eyes, of course, ran. But mainly in the area of ​​the female chest, waist and hips. That is, the idea that it should be so is by no means a fallacy.

Sarah proves that it is the female breast that catches the eyes of men in the first place. And they look at it longer than the rest of the body - an average of 62 milliseconds. The hips and the waist are 15 milliseconds less. And the larger the chest and the thinner the waist, the longer the appreciative look falls on them.

Interestingly, for some reason, women examine the stranger in the same sequence as men. Most likely, they subconsciously evaluate how strong competition she - a stranger - can make up.

Who do you believe? British scientists or American? For men, such a question is not so important. But just in case, ladies can consider attractive both eyes and smiles, and all that is lower. And, being in a male society, for example at a corporate party, to present in a favorable light all this at once.


The stronger sex is literally tuned to the perception of female charms. American neurologist Benjamin Hayden showed them to subjects. And by means of a tomograph recorded activity in male brains. Defined: brains in response necessarily excited. And regardless of the will of the observer, the so-called endorphins are injected - drugs of their own domestic production. From what they get high. Together with the owner of the brain. Therefore, not to cast an appropriate look, to divert it is almost impossible. Hence, most likely, the results obtained by Sarah Gervais.
