According to the studies held by scientists from Indiana State University, males are blind to any efforts made by the opposite sex to attract their attention. Three hundred students of both sexes participated in the study dedicated to this topic. Every participant was offered to view a set of 280 female pictures and asked to determine which of the four listed emotions (friendliness, sexual interest, sadness, or aversion) were displayed on each picture.
Males displayed much less accurate results than females did; many of them confused friendliness with sexual interest and, visa versa, perceived sexual interest for friendliness. The chief scientist Coreen Ferris noted, however, that the results of the study represent only the average perception among men and that some males are remarkable at interpreting female emotions.
