Physiognomy & Face Reading
Physiognomy and facial expression includes all the features of each particular human face.
Although the study of physiognomy is not part of a separate science of biology or psychology, people have been and are preoccupied to distinguish and interpret people’s faces, facial expressions and micro expressions. The best way to learn face reading is to first learn how to recognize the different facial features and then learn how to relate them to their corresponding personality traits.
For the start analyzing your personal traits such as:
- – Your forehead type and size, occurring wrinkles and their alignment
- – Eyebrows and eyes colour, size, distance between them and shape
- – Nose shape and length
- – Mouth, lips and chin, shape and size
- – Ears, hair and face shape
Surprisingly, many people may not know the answer to many of these questions, that’s why it’s very important to learn how to recognize these facial features in order to master the science of face reading. People usually become very enthusiastic about learning face reading and thus skip this step; however, it’s a strongly recommended step if you want to become a good face reader.
