Physiognomy or face reading is the analysis or study of the face to determine a person's personality or character, in other words, to create a personality profile.
To learn how to approach others, interact and communicate with them, how to make decisions, how to listen, as well as to understand yourself and the people around you better, to mention a few.
A person's life is visually represented by their face. A life well lived earns a person lines, which serve as badges of honour. We ought to be proud of them.
The face can be read like a map and the following are just a few aspects reflected on the face:
Chinese face reading already appeared 1 000 BC in the Zhou dynasty which was a royal dynasty of China.
By the 4th century BC, the philosopher Aristotle frequently referred to theory and literature concerning the relationship of appearance to character.
Even Pythagoras, the ancient Greek mathematician, astronomer, and scientist once rejected a prospective follower/apprentice because, to Pythagoras, his appearance indicated bad character.
In the Middle Ages and Renaissance (5th to 17th century), Physiognomy was taught in English universities.
In modern times, the biggest promoter of physiognomy was the Swiss pastor Johann Kaspar Lavater (1741–1801) through which Physiognomy gained great popularity.
Interestingly, in 2011, the South Korean news agency Yonhap published a Physiognomy analysis of the current leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un.
Just a few examples:
Do you want to establish compatibility with someone before you commit to a relationship? For instance, a person's spending preferences can be determined from their nose. Be cautious if they have big nostrils because they might spend a lot of your money. Hence, get an analysis done to see if there is anything that could later in the relationship cause annoyance or before you get a terrible surprise.
Have you ever been in a love relationship where your partner would simply stare at you and ignore you while you argued? A rational explanation might exist. Jaws show our capacity for resolving disputes. People with narrow jaws won't defend themselves and will always want to avoid conflict. Hence, before becoming frustrated that they are not interested in what you have to say, get an analysis done to better understand them. Unnecessary conflict and misunderstanding can be prevented.
Have you ever had the impression that your romantic partner isn't always eager to spend time with you 24/7? The partner with thin or non-visible top eyelids needs their space occasionally. The partner with large top eyelids need to be constantly validated in a relationship. Get an analysis done to better understand each other's intimacy requirements to prevent misunderstanding.
Have you ever worked with someone who was incompetent in what they do? Even if they have the highest education, they are terrible at their job (say, as a salesperson). You can tell whether someone can think quickly on their feet or not, by looking at their ears. Get an analysis done to ensure that they are suitable for the position they hold.
When hiring a candidate, get an analysis done to make sure they fit the position before hiring them.
People lie, credentials are false, the face NEVER lie!
Are you a team member that has to pick up the slack when a teammate can't seem to finish a project? It might not be because they are just lazy, but their eyebrows may shed information on their behaviour. If he has Beginner's eyebrows, he is quite good at starting a project, but is slow to finish it. Hence, to complete the project, he would require a partner with Ender's eyebrows.
