Researchers believe they’ve discovered why other people look more attractive when you’re drunk. Scientists believe that humans find faces more attractive when the left and right sides match and are symetrical. They had test subjects drink while they looked at photos of the opposite sex and rated them both for symmetry and attractiveness. Turns out the drunker people were, the less able they were to detect symemetry and the less they cared about it. One unexpected finding: Drunk men were much better than drunken women at picking out asymmetrical faces.
- Thus the famous expression “I can drink her symetrical!”
- The real question is… how did they get the guys to actually look at the woman’s faces?
