No other racial group is caricatured
as Indians are - not blacks, not Asians, not Latinos, not anyone.
"Almost in any direction can be seen great wide mouths, thick lips, flat noses, glaring white eyes, and to wind up the thing, there close behind the caricatured
is the familiar chicken coop and out beyond that is the rind of the `dervastat'd watah million.'"
Against the background of these five chapters, Rhodes goes on to present an examination of why caricatured
images are so powerful.
As art critic Henry McBride pointed out, "the caricatured
after a while come to believe that they ...
However, the IAC model presents a very specific prediction; caricatured face primes should produce more cross-domain (face prime-name target) self-priming than typical face primes.
Ten monochrome photographs of famous personalities (see Appendix 2) were caricatured using Benson & Perrett's (1991b) continuous-tone caricature generator.
In order to produce a continuous-tone image the caricatured and veridical images were divided into 340 triangular tessera.
The same unfamiliar neutral prime face caricatured at the five levels was used throughout.
Because the purpose of Expt 2 was to investigate effects of caricature on self-priming a t test was carried out as a planned comparison on the + 50 per cent caricatured and -50 per cent caricatured same primes in the same prime type.
Although obviously lacking the ecological validity of photographic quality stimuli, the caricatured line-drawings used by Rhodes et al.
A caricatured image is created by exaggerating the face along the dimensions that make that face unique relative to a norm.
Experiment 1 uses distinctiveness enhanced (caricatured) and veridical images to investigate performance on a face recognition task.
Each subject's mean recognition time for caricatured and veridical images was calculated.
There were no failures of recognition of any of the caricatured stimuli, and across subjects and target faces there were only 5/112 failures of recognition of the veridical stimuli.
With this in mind, it is important to see if caricatured and veridical stimuli can be used to replicate the distinctiveness effect when distinctiveness causes a disadvantage rather than an advantage.
