The article reports on research from Indiana University and Yale University, which showed that U.S. college-age males confuse friendly nonverbal cues with cues for sexual interest because men have a less discerning eye than women. Men who viewed images of friendly women misidentified 12% of the images as sexually interested. Women mistook 8.7% of friendly images for sexual interest. When viewing images of sexually interested women, men mistakenly called 37.8% of the images friendly. Women mistook 31.9% of the sexual-interest cues for friendliness.
