Can your eyebrows really be telling of your personality? Apparently yes, according to a new study published in the Journal of Personality. Your eyebrows may be the defining factor in whether or not you are a narcissist.
Two researchers by the name of Miranda Giacomin and Nicholas Rule conducted this study by recruiting participants to look at the faces of people who were all across the narcissistic spectrum.
Turns out you can range from a normal level to full blown narcissist!
Here's a break down of how the study went:
- According to a new study, you might be able to pick them out by looking at their eyebrows.
- Participants were apparently able to identify narcissists as the people with the more distinct eyebrows.
Strangely, when participants were shown pictures of just the eyebrows, they could correctly identify the narcissists too.
Now you may be wondering how just eyebrows define someone as a narcissist? Well, narcissists are people who has an excessive interest in or admiration of themselves. Narcissists may like to make a statement with their brows so to tantalise potential love interests and make an impression.
Narcissists tended to have darker, thicker, more distinctive eyebrows, because according to the study, they the darker and thicker, the more attention they feel they'll attract.
The researchers tested the results again by Photoshopping narcissists' brows onto the faces of non-narcissists, and vice versa, and the eyebrows gave the game away away again.
As the authors wrote, they might "seek to maintain distinct eyebrows to facilitate others' ability to notice, recognize, and remember them; thereby increasing their likability and reinforcing their overly positive self-views."
