Perception of Attractiveness Under Uncertainty

Perception under uncertainty might be a tricky one. Let us assume that you saw both a blurry, and a non-blurry photo of someone.

Is s/he more or less attractive in the non-blurred/clear photo?

Should we expect any sex-differentiated perceptual bias under uncertainty?

To be able to answer questions as such, we plan to conduct multiple studies where we manipulate images and create uncertainty.
