Note: Averaging improves symmetry, and “symmetry is an underlying factor in determining attractiveness.”

Why the “average” always look conventionally beautiful: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Averageness

…from the Dienekes Anthropology blog. Note: “Calculating average proportions unpleasant asymmetries and irregularities become leveled out. Moreover, by blending together several faces wrinkles and pimples gradually disappear. As a consequence, the skin looks younger and perfectly smooth” From http://www.uni-regensburg.de/Fakultaeten/phil_Fak_II/Psychologie/Psy_II/beautycheck/english/durchschnittsgesichter/durchschnittsgesichter.htm
