dc.description.abstractThe Mooney Face Test is a widely used test of face perception, but was originally designed to be administered by personal interview. We have developed a three-alternative forced-choice version for online testing. We tested 397 healthy adults between the ages of 18 and 42 (M = 24 years). There was a wide range of performance (64%–100% correct; M = 89.6%). We observed a significant sex difference favoring males (.31 standard deviation; p = .004). Additionally, independently of sex, higher 2D:4D digit ratios were significantly associated with higher scores (ρ = .14, p = .006). A genome-wide association study (GWAS) for a subset of 370 participants identified an association between Mooney performance and a polymorphism in the RAPGEF5 gene (rs1522280; p = 9.68 × 10^−8). This association survives a permutation test (p = .031).
