Looking leadership in the face
Current Directions in Psychological Science
Given what we know about predictors of leader ability, facial appearance should play a small or very limited role in how observers select leaders; however, research convincingly shows otherwise. In this article, we review which consequential leader outcomes are predicted by facial appearance. We explain why observers are inclined to take heuristic decisions using facial cues, discuss whether facial appearance carries credible information, and identify the conditions that may attenuate “face effects.”
