What is a symmetrical face shape

Symmetry is a beautiful thing — especially when it comes to potential partners. Studies have shown that people prefer symmetrical facial features in the opposite sex, which many scientists think evolved to help people choose the healthiest mate. Yet a new large-scale study throws that into doubt, indicating that health during childhood has no impact on later facial symmetry.

Current logic holds that symmetry is beautiful because it suggests a relatively healthy childhood, free from diseases that could take their toll on facial features, causing subtle asymmetry — diseases such as chicken pox, mumps, whooping cough or tonsillitis. This theory is often cited in evolutionary models of human mate choice.

Psychologist Nicholas Pound, a senior lecturer at Brunel University London, decided to test this assumption.

Pound and his team overcame both of these hurdles, utilizing in-depth health data from 4, teenagers. In order to determine the degree of facial symmetry, the team acquired high-definition three-dimensional facial scans of each participant at age Twenty-one separate facial landmarks were marked and measured, from which researchers were able to calculate an individual asymmetry score.

Facial symmetry is where both...

Their results were clear: Facial asymmetry in adolescents is in no way related to early childhood heath. The results were published today in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The researchers suggest that our attraction to symmetry might be a byproduct of our sensitivity to these major asymmetries — or possibly just a reflection of our aesthetic appreciation of symmetry in art and nature.

Now redo that study without modern medicine and with a greater hunter-gatherer lifestyle. I wonder if ancient lack of medicine might affect how minor incidents with face, teeth and eyes affect appearance.

To me facial symmetry absence of any asymmetrical variations, even surficial seems to suggest genetic stability, which in turn implies resistance to health problems, irrespective of health during childhood. Mm… Seems to me that greater genetic variation would be more likely to cause asymmetrical features.
