Measured Speed And Accuracy of Inferred Intelligence Through Implicit
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.
