American psychologists from tufts University believe that a person to reliably determines his sexual orientation, Researchers had conducted a series of experiments, during which volunteers were shown 90 photos of men both heterosexual and homosexual orientation. The time interval between screenings ranged from 33 milliseconds to 10 seconds. Under the terms of the experiment, the volunteers during this time, it was necessary to determine the sexual proclivities of a man whose image was represented on the photographic image.

The results showed that volunteers in just 100 milliseconds defined sexual orientation with an accuracy of about 70%. Less time of the show led to some reduction in accuracy of definition, but, along with this, increase the interval demonstration did not lead to a significant increase in fidelity of such a "forecast".

In addition, it was found that the facial features of some of the men did not allow to reliably determine Homo - or heterosexuality of its owner. The accuracy of judgments made about them never exceeded 50%.

I don't think any of us can tell that easy just by looking at a person-is he straight,or is he gay?I mean,there are people,that are obviously gay,because they want everybody to see it.But there are also the others,who don't like to demonstrate it that much-they're not hiding it from us,no,just not the open type of man,that's it.So,staright looking man can easily be gay,and openly gay man-well,not much straightness in that case. :) It's impossible to tell it on the first sight,sometimes even after a long time spent with somebody,you can't be sure about it.

You know I don't think that gays can be easily recognized among straight people. Because the way you talk, the way you behave and the clothes you wear have nothing in common with the gender of people you fall in love with. If it really were so, then bisexuals would change their behavior each time when they start to date with a woman after dating with a man an oppositely. Of course, there are people according to behavior of which you can tell exactly that they are gay. But only if they underline it and focus your attention on that fact that they are gay and they don't try to hide it .
