The purpose is to find the structure of visual impressions of human face-likeness. The stimuli were 15 outline figures of human faces. Lingoes' Multiple Scalogram Analysis and its modified type were applied to the 0-1 data of face-likeness obtained from 147 student subjects. Results were; (a) a monotonic relationship was seen between the goodness of the impression of face-likeness and the number of components in the human outline face figures, (b) the eye was the most important component for the impression of face-likeness, (c) two series of face-likeness were obtained by Lingoes' MSA, and similar ones were obtained by the modified MSA, (d) one of the two series was correlated with the number of components, while the other with the content of the figures.
