生活中, 有的喜欢“清秀”的男性面孔, 而有的则更偏爱长得“阳刚”的面孔, 已有大量的研究致力于解释这一分歧, 但是得出的研究结果各不一致。本研究用元分析方法考察对男性面孔二态性的不同偏好, 通过检索、搜集了23篇有效文献, 56对数据满足了元分析标准(n = 8408)。结果发现, 漏斗图和Begg & Mazumdar秩相关检验、Egger’s检验结果显示不存在发表偏差; 主效应检验发现对男性面孔二态性无明显偏好; 调节效应检验表明, 对男性面孔二态性偏好受面孔生成技术、生理周期的调节, 但不受被试性别、关系背景和文化的调节。人们对男性面孔二态性的偏好, 除了本身生物学特质(生理周期)外, 还受到生成技术的影响。

In our life, some people prefer more masculine faces while some favor feminine faces instead. A lot of research has been dedicated to explain this disagreement and obtained inconsistent results. A meta-analysis was conducted to explore difference preference for sexual dimorphism in male face shape, and the factors affecting this preference. Through literature retrieval, 23 cases and 56 independent effect sizes together with 8408 participants which met the inclusion criteria of meta-analysis were selected. The result of funnel plot and Egger’s intercept illustrated that there was not publication bias. Main-effect test findings demonstrated that there was no significantly preference for masculinity or femininity (Odds ratio point estimate = 0.95). The moderator analysis revealed that menstrual cycle, computer graphics methodology moderated the preference, however, the culture background, participant’s gender, relationship context had no significant moderate effect. Therefore, we can draw a conclusion that people’s preferences for sexual dimorphism in male face shape is not only influenced by biological factors (Menstrual Cycle) of themselves, but also modulated by graphics methodology.
