Mas nagiging kaakit-akit umano ang isang tao kapag nakasuot ito ng facemask batay sa pag-aaral na ginawa ng Cardiff University sa United Kingdom.
Sa ulat ng Reuters, inilahad ni Dr Michael Lewis, Reader sa Cardiff University, na nagbago na ang pananaw ng mga tao tungkol sa pagsusuot ng face mask.
Ani Lewis, dati ay iniisip ng mga tao na kapag ang isang indibidwal ay nakasuot ng facemask ay mayroon itong sakit at hindi ito kaakit-akit.
“What we found is that in the past, when people put a surgical face mask on, this cues people to think of there’s a disease present and that will make people judge the face as being less attractive.”
“But what happens now is that when people see someone with a mask, they’re no longer being cued that there is a disease there. But what they’re doing is seeing people as being more attractive,” ayon kay Lewis.
Sa naturang pag-aaral kasi ay ipinakita sa 43 indibidwal ang larawan ng lalaking nakasuot ng facemask at isang walang suot na facemask.
Base sa mga ito, mas may dating ang lalaking may suot na facemask.
“So one of the things we looked at was whether the effect was only present there for unattractive faces or whether it was present for attractive faces as well. And what we find is that covered up with the bottom half of face is yes, it does improve the attractiveness of unattractive faces. But equally, even for the highest set of attractive faces within our database, it’s still increased the attractiveness,” saad ni Lewis.
Ginawa ang experimento noong Pebrero 20 ng nakaraang taon kung saan required ang mga tao na magsuot ng face mask.
