reading faces

Women are good at reading faces of men:

The first part of the study provided confirmation of work done previously by other groups, using different methods. When asked to rate the men's masculinity, the women agreed on who was top and who was bottom, and their rankings correlated with the testosterone levels from the swabs. What was novel was that when asked to rate the men's liking of children from the photographs, they ranked them in the same order as the researchers had done from the interest the men themselves had shown in pictures of infants.

I don't know about the rest of the guys around here, but under certain circumstances I can see fit to overlook a tiny little mistake. I'm just a nice guy like that.

Men, on the other hand, think women who mistake exits for lavatory doors on buses are sexy.
