Do you think people don’t judge you by your appearance in a photo? Well, they do, and here’s some information on how fast those assessments take place based on the research of Alex Todorov a psychologist at Princeton University.
His research has shown that humans make trait inferences from facial appearance in photos at lightning fast speeds. Viewing an image for less than 1/10th of a second is all we need to create judgments about a person’s character.
