We are researching remote communication systems that use the eyes and their peripheral areas as visual information. In this paper, we investigated the impressions Subject Group A and Subject Group B receive from photos of the eyes and their peripheral areas and the whole face as stimuli and analyzed the results. In the experiment, we asked two male and two female models to cooperate and photographed their eyes, the peripheral areas, and the whole face. We then prepared Subject Group A and Subject Group B. In the test procedure, we asked Subject Group A to look at the photos that cover the eyes and peripheral areas of female models and answer the questionnaire. We then asked the groups to look at the photos that cover the whole face and answer the same questionnaire. We subsequently asked Subject Group B to look at only the photos that cover the whole face of female models and to answer the same questionnaire. The same test was also conducted with photos of male models. Factor analysis extracted three factors: funny, cool-headed, and quiet. We examined whether the first impression changes depending on the method for showing photos of faces or whether the impression formed later changes depending on that method. Finally, we considered the relationships between selection of visual information for Videophone and the quality of communication.
