Reading Faces - How Faces Reveal True Identity

What do you see when you look at the people in your life, or even strangers on the street; do you notice their face, their eyes, their posture? Do you see lonely eyes, filled with pain that beg you to look closer? Can you see joy, excitement, guilt or shame? Look carefully; everyone carries their life story on their face. How they are feeling, what they have endured, how they feel about themselves and their life are all imprinted in their face.

Who am I, who is that person, what can I expect from them; the answers are all right before our eyes; we just need to understand what we see. From the eyebrows up to the top of our forehead we find the lines that reflect intellect. The eyebrows to the bottom of the nose reflect social inclination while the nose to the chin tells the physical story. The right side of the face reflects conscious choices while the left side reflects the subconscious choices. A straight line across the middle of the forehead says, "I have left my past behind."

The Eyes

Eyebrows define personality traits: an inverted triangle reflects a controlling personality; a straight line indicates balance while a full arch declares compassion. Mentally draw an inverted triangle from the inside starting point of each brow. Is the triangle slanted to one side? This measures ability and how we handle relationships. Slanted to the left indicates a subjective, creative personality. The person is able to build relationships easily. Slanted to the right indicates a more objective approach that is factual and no-nonsense. These people are better at maintaining relationships than building them. A long brow indicates a counselor while a short brow says I am a ruler. Eyebrows angled back indicate an unconventional personality, while a straight line belongs to one who is conventional.

The lines around the eyes tell us even more. A straight line or needle between the eyebrows reflects a person who detaches from emotion. Lines slanted downward under the eyes indicate lost love. Lines at the outside corners of the eyes reflect outlook on life. Slanted up reflects optimism, straight out is the pragmatist or skeptical person while downwards reflects the pessimist. Lines that begin under the eye at the outside corner angled down towards the nose are an indication of pain.

The Nose and Cheeks

The width of the bridge of the nose indicates the work style of the person. The wider the bridge the more hands on (same may call this blue-collar) the personality. Nostrils that flare up belong to the naive or trusting person, nostrils that appear as a straight line say "I am dependable" while nostrils that slant downwards say "I am a skeptic." Use the inverted triangle to measure the work ethic by how balanced the nose is positioned between the eyes. Closer to the left is subjective while closer to the right is objective. Centered is balanced between both. A straight line across the bridge of the nose just before it ends indicates permanent heartbreak or loss. Those sideways smiley face lines on the cheeks indicate the person's perception of their own power. Use the depth of the lines to gauge how powerful they feel.

The Ears

Ears that begin high, at the top of the center of the eyebrow and angle back belong to the unconventional person. Ears that begin here but are vertical indicate a person who respects convention. Ears that stick out belong to the non-conformist while ears that are placed close to the head are the conformist. Ears that appear to end in a rectangle shape belong to the logical thinker; rounded ear lobes are the creative personality.

The Mouth and Chin

The distance between the nose and the mouth is an indicator of the life force of the person; longer is deeper. Vertical lines that appear on the cheeks beside mouth are grief lines. The width of the lips is an indicator of compassion and sensuality. The upper lip is a reflection of how the person feels about themselves. The lower lip reflects how they see or feel for others. A thin upper lip typically indicates a person who rarely puts their own feels first while a thick upper lip may reflect a person who cares more for their own feelings than others. A thick lower lip may also indicate sensuality. Lines that appear on the outside of face just before the chin begins reflect actual power Many people do not have these lines. When you see them you are dealing with a person who has been or is powerful. The deeper the line the more this is true. The lines at the sides of the mouth indicate attitude. An upwards slant belongs to the optimist; straight lines belong to the pragmatist while the downwards slanted lines are the pessimist.

The lines that appear above the chin are either inverted triangles, straight lines or curved. Just like the eyebrows, an inverted line indicates the controller, a straight line the balanced person while the arch curving downwards is the compassionate person.

We know who we are, and who others are, if only we care to see.
