The one you love the most is “Shantou kill”

In all emoticons, in addition to the classic “scissors”, the most loved one is the “scratch”. Not only is the action simple, but it also gives a lovely and gentle feeling. In fact, this is not a illusion of human beings. A recent study unveiled the scientific method of capturing the hearts of the people.

When faced with a face, a lot of information about this person will flow into our brains, such as his age, gender, race, expression, and even emotions. Although it is easy to deal with such information in the brain, the mechanism is still a mystery to scientists. Some people (such as autistic people) have different ways of processing information in their brains than normal people, which may cause them to have certain obstacles in eye contact.

A new study on facial “gaze” has greatly deepened our understanding of facial information acquisition, led by Nicholas Davydenko, assistant professor of psychology at the University of California, Santa Cruz. “Looking at each other’s eyes allows you to collect more information.” Davyenko said, “This is a clear advantage. On the contrary, if eye contact can’t go smoothly, it will reduce the ability of facial information processing, let you Unfavorable social status.” Reluctance to make eye contact may be misunderstood as absent-minded or indifferent.

The existing research tells us that when people look at a face, we tend to look at the left side of the face. This phenomenon is called “left-view preference”. This preference is due to the fact that we are leading the face information processing. The right hemisphere of the brain. The reverse face makes it harder to read information. This upside down seems to disrupt people’s neural circuits, making it difficult for people to capture the most basic information. But we know very little about how people handle the state between the positive and inverted faces, such as a face that is rotated at a certain angle or slightly squatted.

“For facial information, we get it all at once, not one feature and one feature.” Davyenko said, “But no one has ever studied how we get from a slanted face. Information.” Davydenko used eye tracking technology to find the answer, and he was surprised to find that the phenomenon of left-view preference disappeared, and the phenomenon of preference of the upper eye appeared. The same is true even if it is only 11 degrees rotated relative to the center.

“People tend to notice the higher-positioned eye first,” Davydenko said. “A slight tilt will eliminate left-looking preferences. This is the most interesting place. To my surprise, this effect is so Powerful.”

Davydenko found that when people look at a squatting face, they pay more attention to the part of the eye. Perhaps it is because licking your face makes them feel more accessible and less threatening, which may be especially important for people with autism. “Direct eye contact can be a threat between species,” Davienko said. “But when looking at a slightly tilted face, people will look more at the higher-positioned eye. I think this discovery can be used for the treatment of autistic patients.”

This finding is also helpful for patients with amblyopia, because amblyopia can make others feel uneasy. “In conversation, they may want to squint their heads so that their eyes without amblyopia will rise,” Davienko said. “This just takes advantage of the natural tendency of us to look more at higher eyes.” When the rotation angle is 45 degrees, the top view preference effect is the strongest; when the rotation angle is 90 degrees, this preference is weakened a lot. “It’s too strange to have a 90-degree head,” Davienko said. “It’s going to make people want to see where they are, and they completely change their behavior.”

“Shantou kill”, just a gimmick action can make people feel very cute, and immediately evoke the human heart. When we are faced with people who are overbearing and cold, try to use “Taro” to get closer to each other.
