Are We the Same or Different? Ethnicity and Personality in the Human Face 

As a social species, humans are drawn naturally to differentiate people on many different dimensions, such as identity, sex, age, ethnicity, emotion, and personality. This talk aims to review the science on face processing, and pay attention to two specific issues: (1) Why do faces of ethnicities different from ourselves all appear to “look the same”? (2) Are personality judgments that we make about a face (e.g., Is the person trustworthy?) just our intuitions, or do we perceive this information directly from the face itself?
