Your Politics Are Written all Over Your Face

Psychologists have found that your face tells people a lot about your political leanings.

The study’s participants made their judgments based on perceived character traits: Republicans were perceived as more powerful, while Democrats were perceived as “warmer.” (HT: BPS Research Digest)[%comments]
