Politicians and Trustworthyness

A study has revealed the facial characteristics that we associate with trustworthiness and applied them to leading politicians. Here is video footage of the politician's faces being treated to be more trustworthy and then less trustworthy.

Gordon Brown is perceived to have the least trustworthy face of the three due to his thick eyebrows, wide nose and size of his mouth. Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg was next on the list while Conservative leader David Cameron is judged to be the most trustworthy because of his fresh-faced smooth complexion, wider mouth and more rounded eye shape.

I wouldn't trust any of them to be telling the truth unless I had the bamboo skewers and the pliers to hand...


Next: phrenology study performed on politicians?

I wonder how Blair fairs.
