The purpose of the present study was to assess the influence of dentofacial appearance of 10-year-old Brazilian children on interpersonal attractiveness among schoolchildren of the same age in the dimensions of friendship, aggressiveness, intelligence and esthetics in the following facial types: harmonic face; class II syndrome; class III syndrome; long face syndrome.
The facial images were organized into four different sets of photographs that consisted of 4 portraits of the same girl and 4 portraits of the same boy in the 4 variations: harmonic face, class II, class III and long face syndrome (LF).
Conversely, the facial type most associated with the notion of "least intelligent" was the long face syndrome.
In each set facial portraits were presented in four situations: the original, harmonic face and three versions produced by a graphic computing program, classified as the class II, class III and long face syndromes.
