Ethnicity Aftereffect
Average Face | comments(0)


The average face shown below is an ethnically ambiguous face.
Some of you may feel that the face shown below is rather on the side of Caucasian, but others may feel that this face is rather on the side of Asian.

Now, try to change your current impression of the ethnicity of this face.


If you rather think that the face above is a Caucasian face, stare at the Caucasian face shown below for 30 seconds.

If you rather think that the face above is an Asian face, stare at the Asian face shown below for 30 seconds.

After that, look at the above face again.

How did you feel?
