This study asks the question, are first impressions of intelligence inferred automatically from the presence of glasses? The theoretical construct explored in the study is the perception of intelligence. Intelligence can be defined in many ways, such as: the ability to acquire and apply knowledge and skills; the collection of information of military or political value; the ability to learn or understand or to deal with new or trying situations; the ability to apply knowledge to manipulate one’s environment or think abstractly as measured by objective criteria; and mental acuteness. The key article referenced in this study is Eggleston et al. (2020) study that questions the phylogenetic origin of first impressions from faces.
