Manifestation of Face Asymmetry and Emotions in the Drawing Test Taken by Students from Different Ethnic Groups of the Small Siberian Region of Russia in the Republic of Altai
Keywords:anthropoesthetic preferences, face drawing test, projective techniques, sexual partner.
The study was conducted in the Republic of Altai, one of the Russian regions, with the participation of
students of different ethnic and gender backgrounds. The main idea was to clarify the anthropoesthetic
preferences when choosing a sexual partner; however, in this work, attention is paid to a characteristic
feature of the drawn face – its asymmetry. One of the original projective psychodiagnostic methods was used
– face drawing, which made it possible to determine the coefficient of asymmetry of its structural elements
and the manifestation of emotions in relation to a potential sexual partner. The algorithm for obtaining a face
pattern, drawing reference (cephalometric) points, and a module for calculating asymmetry was described
in detail. In addition, the authors made an attempt to show the connection between asymmetry and the space
occupied by facial structural elements with the emotional background.
