We Decide Who to Trust in Less Than a Second

We make one of the most important decisions of our lives?whether or not to trust another person?in less than one second. Psychologist Alex Todorov flashed photographs to 200 volunteers for one second?and sometimes even LESS, and asked them to rate how trustworthy each face was. Even if they were given more time, their original, "snap" judgement of the person in the photograph did not change.

LiveScience.com reports that Todorov still can't figure out exactly what it was about each photo that made the faces seem trustworthy?or not.
