Strike a Pose on the: Left or Right?

An old game show called “Tattle Tales” consisted, of course, a live studio audience and the contestants were celebrity couples. One or the other’s spouse was to answer questions that they thought the would guess. The last question to end the game was “What side will your wife say is the best photo side you have?” Each husband got it right; two were right and the other left. That made me think since I’ve heard of there being a side. But how does this happen? Isn’t our face “one dimension?” Not necessarily in the purest since because I know that we are not symmetrically shaped. Hence one leg being longer than the other. One foot being larger; even the length of our arms.

Here’s a partial study …

Which side of your face looks betterThe left, research says.

Why is left side more attractive? Broadly speaking, the right side of the brain is more involved with emotional expression, and the right side of the brain controls the muscles on the left side of the body. That means your left cheek tends to exhibit a greater intensity of emotion, which observers find more aesthetically pleasing.

I’m not sure of this. I’ve heard the functionalities of the right and left side of our brain; never imagining the left depicting a better profile of my look versus the right. This is quite interesting.

Do you believe it? Do you find yourself taking side shots because that side looks better than the other? I know I do. Just … interesting! ………
