London, Feb 11 (IANS) Human beings find more attractive the faces of races other than theirs. White men preferred Asian women, while white women tend to go for black males, a study has found.

Scientists from the department of psychology at Cardiff University discovered that in order of preference, white women went for black males, followed by whites and then Asians.

White men, on the other hand, went for Asian women, followed by white, then black, the Daily Mail reported.

Men and women aged between 18 and 30 were shown 600 faces of the opposite sex and asked to grade them for attractiveness.

The researchers said the study reflects only what is seen in the society.

British government figures show black men marry white women 1.5 times more than the other way around in the country. More white men also marry East Asian women compared to Asian men marrying white women.
