“Are you are tired of getting the ‘once over’ when you are walking down the street, on the job, or at the grocery store? Have you considered buying one of those t-shirts with ‘my eyes are up here’ plastered over the bust? If so, you are not alone.”
Sarah J. Gervais, Ph. D., and her colleagues recently conducted an experiment to study where a person’s gaze falls when presented with a picture of a woman. In other words, the team “scientifically examined ‘ogling.’” Using both men and women, test subjects were asked to evaluate either a woman’s appearance or personality based on a series of photographs. So what did they discover? Check out the results of the study over at Psychology Today.
