Washington, Mar 9 (ANI): You can know whether or not a man is trustworthy by the breadth of his cheekbones, claims a new study.

The study has been published in the journal Psychological Science.

In the research, lead researcher Michael Stirrat of the University of St. Andrews in Scotland found that in a computerized game, broad-faced men were more likely to exploit others for personal monetary gain. And other players expected this behavior, reports Live Science.

While wide-faced men were more exploitive in this study's context, "it is difficult to generalize to real life," Stirrat said.

The study did not address female trustworthiness. (ANI)
