Trustworthiness scale

Who can be trusted? According to research conducted by Princeton University scientists, computerized images show the spectrum of trustworthiness. With a neutral face scored at 0, the most trustworthy face (with a score of 8) shows upturned eyebrows and lips, while what the scientists concluded was the least trustworthy face (score, -8) had eyebrows pointing down and lips curled at the edges.
