This study done by Kyrzystof Gajos’ lab at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University tests the social intelligence of each participant using images of just the eyes of people’s faces. The participant must guess what emotion the eyes are showing. Gajos claims that with this study, his lab is “trying to understand how the ability to recognize emotions of others vary across cultures.” Is it potentially problematic that all the faces in the experiment are Caucasian faces? Does the use of make-up (on woman’s faces) help or hurt the validity of the results? What do you think?
