Photogenic: TikTok Doctor reveals which side of your face is the “good side” and why

If you are having trouble getting a decent selfie even after millions of attempts, you may be on the wrong side.

One doctor revealed that your face has a “good” side and it can make you more attractive to other people.

TikTokers posted on social media, puzzled as to why one side looks so different from the other.

According to one doctor, there’s a reason the left side of your face is more attractive than the right.

Dr Fayez Ajib is a general physician at Aventura Hospital and Medical Center, Miami. He said that it was the same reason why portraits were painted on the left in the past.

He stated, “It’s known as left-side bias.”

“The right side of the brain controls emotions and expressions, but it also controls your left side.”

“So, the left side of your facial expressions emotion is more effective than the right. This is what more people find visually pleasing.”

Research has also shown that women perceive faces of others with a bias to the left.

Queen Mary University of London experts backed the claim that women sometimes see things differently.

Eye tracking was used for determining how people looked at each other when they first met.

Researchers found that women spend more time looking at faces than men, and the opposite is true for male counterparts.

When they see someone else’s faces, humans have a strong left-side bias.

Experts revealed earlier this year that left-side bias does not reflect certain races.

They explained in Attention, Perception, and Psychophysics that a chimeric facial constructed with the left-side (from the viewer’s perspective) of a face is more like the original than one constructed with its right side.

“Previous studies have identified the left-side bias mainly in faces of own-race, but it is not clear if this effect is race-specific or if it reflects universal visual expertise.”

The researchers looked at more than 100 Chinese students who had completed two identification tasks. They found a significant left side bias for both their own-race (Chinese), and other-race faces (Caucasian). This suggests that the left-side bias is a reflection of universal visual competence in face processing.
