Perception and Judgment Lab

Twenty-five Caucasian faces were randomly generated using the Facegen Modeller program ( Version 3.1. Then for each facial identity, we created 7 versions that varied on perceived dominance, trustworthiness, and threat, using the computational models developed by Oosterhof & Todorov (2008). The exact procedures are described in Oosterhof & Todorov (2008). Todorov & Oh (2021) provide a detailed description of how the models are computed.

If you use these faces, any resulting written work should acknowledge the software used for face generation, FaceGen 3.1, and Oosterhof &  Todorov (2008). The exact reference for the latter is:
