The purpose of this study is to better understand how wearing a mask, or wearing a certain type of mask, contributes to differences in numerous personality and sexuality-related traits.  Participation requires answering some questions about yourself (i.e., demographic questions such as your age, sexual orientation, and relationship status) on the survey platform Qualtrics.

 

You will then see 10 faces and be asked to rate how attractive, intelligent, promiscuous, flirtatious, trustworthy, masculine/feminine, and dominant/submissive each face appears. The entire study should take no more than 15 minutes of time.
