Your face says a lot about you, even to little kids. Harvard University researchers showed children ages three to 13 photos of men’s faces– some had features typically associated with good personality traits, while others had the opposite. They found that by age three, kids would deem people ‘nice’ or ‘mean’, and determine who they thought could lift heavy stuff based on facial features alone. By age five, these judgments were consistent, and the kids chose to give a ‘gift’ to those who had faces they liked. Researchers say, “This […] shows that perceptions of people, however inaccurate those judgments may be, emerge early in humans [, and …] they manifest in the child’s behavior toward others who are viewed as good or bad.”
