In addition to choosing a potential boyfriend or girlfriend through talking, laughing, and listening, body odor also plays an important role in settling a new friendship. Without realizing it, according to Israeli researchers, you choose your new mate based on his or her smell.

Electric nose

Researchers have shown that people who have a friendly click with each other have the same chemical components in body odor to have. To investigate this, they used an electric “nose” that study participants had sniffed on a large scale. In addition, participants were also allowed to smell and judge themselves.

clear matches

In both electrical ‘nose’ scans and real noses, the subjects who clicked sympathetically looked more like each other than the randomly matched subjects. Funny: An electric nose can predict which people will catch each other before they meet.

mirror game

The way the participants interacted with each other was a mirror game: imitating each other’s movements. The participants stood at a distance of half a meter during this game, so that they could smell each other during the movements. It turns out that the people who indicated that they felt a click with each other had roughly the same body odor.
