Jaynes' Chimeric Faces: Another Look into the Mirror

Michael J. Roszkowski, Glenn E. Snelbecker and Robert S. Rosen
Personality and Individual Differences, 1986, 7 (6).


Asked 704 5-14 year olds to indicate which of two faces (drawings) appeared happier. The main difference between the faces was the lateral location of their happy side. Selection of the face in which the happy features appear on the observer's left is indicative of a left-visual-field bias (LVF) and is interpreted as a sign of right-hemisphere control of face perception. Despite defects in the published version of this study, results have consistently documented differences between left- and right-handers in their selection of the happier face.
