In order to investigate whether genuine intimacy has an effect on the stability of the self-face ad-vantage by modulating self-boundary at the perceptual level, a total of 59 participants currently involved in romantic relationships were investigated by the explicit and implicit face-recognition tasks, and were sorted into two levels (high vs. low) by the Genuine Intimacy Scale. The results showed that regardless of the attention level (explicit vs. implicit task), participants in the low genuine intimacy group responded faster to their own face than the faces of lovers, while the ad-vantage effect was eliminated in the high genuine intimacy group. In other words, the perceptual boundary stretched under the condition of high genuine intimacy, and accordingly, the self face is less differentiated from face of lovers for participants with high genuine intimacy than for ones with low genuine intimacy. In conclusion, the self-face advantage is influenced by genuine intimacy, which suggests that genuine intimacy also plays a significant role in modulating boundaries of self-face perception.
