Wild Card's description 
Visual perception is proven to be different in males and females. This impacts on the design of future systems to facilitate medical decision-making, crime re-enactments and other scenarios as people react differently to visual presentation. People are manipulated into taking courses of action they would not otherwise take (such as adhering to medical advice) diminishing human autonomy.
