We look at people in different ways

US researchers recently demonstrated that we look at people in different ways, depending on whether we consider them to be potential friends or possible romantic interests. By tracking the eye movements of over a hundred heterosexual volunteers when they were looking at photos of strangers of the opposite sex, the scientists discovered that both women and men spent more time looking at feet or legs when they considered the stranger to be a possible platonic friend, but gave greater attention to the head and chest when assessing dating potential.
