8O Feeling Embarrassed, Leave Me Alone: the Impact of Embarrassment on Preference For Facial Prominence

This research proposes that embarrassment increases individuals’ needs for space to avoid others’ attention, and thus predicts a preference for human images of low facial prominence. The effect is heightened when the human image and the consumer are opposite sex (vs. same sex).
