The Man In The Cloth Mask

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...


new study suggests that people are more attractive when you can’t see most of their face. Specifically, the study showed that people are rated as more attractive when wearing a mask than when they are not.

Researchers asked people to evaluate attractiveness of people with a face mask and without. Subjects were rated higher when they wore the masks and subjects who wore cloth masks were rated higher than subjects who wore cloth masks.

Researchers attribute this to our positive association with masks as something for doctors or other high achievers. Hm. It could also be because masks cover many manner of flaws such as: braces, pimples, cold sores and a scar from when I had a mole removed from my nose last year.
