Photographs of Reading the Mind in the Eyes Test (RMET) were classified based on affect valence, and they have been used for the investigation of mental state decoding abilities depending on their valence. The present study aimed at classifying photographs of the Asian version of the RMET that can also be applied to the Japanese by affect valence, as in the original RMET. Japanese female university students were presented with 36 photographs of Asian RMET, and asked to evaluate the affect valence of each photograph. In the resulting classification of the photographs, 20 were negative, 5 were neutral, and 11 were positive.
