The Analysis of Physiognomic Appearance and Personality on Animation Character

The animation character faces are examined to study their physiognomic appearance and personality. Faces of twelve animation characters were selected. Ninety-one students rated their faces on 20 scales concerning physiognomic appearance and 20 scales concerning personality. A five factor solution (full-faces/fragile/nose/eye/brow) in physiognomic appearance and a four-factor solution (affinity/vigor/negative/cautious) in personality were obtained via factor analysis. And these nine factors may discriminate among animation characters in several production companies via discriminant analysis.
