Face reading guide with illustrations

Illustrated Guide to Face Reading

by Roman on July 8, 2008

Could it be possible to know someone’s personality just by looking at his face?

Yes, at least that’s what a growing number of face reading experts think.

Being skilled in face reading can give you valuable insights into anyone just seconds after meeting. Knowing how to read faces while doing your next sales presentation can give you the edge you need in order to seal the deal.

Reading Face Shapes

Prominent cheeks

The individual with most prominent cheeks is usually the man with most personal power. This person might not hold the highest official position but he most likely has a strong backing by his friends and colleagues. If you convince him, others may follow.

Large Chin

If you want to speak to the person who will probably get in the last word of the subject, direct your attention to the person with the largest chin or whose chin juts out the most.

Having the person with the last say in your side can give you the edge you need.

Long Nose

The person with the longest nose or whose nose sticks out the most is usually in control of the money.  A big bulb on the end of the nose indicates that the person is very concerned about money.

Big Jaws

If a person has big jaws or jowls, pay attention. These are the people who are used to getting their way. When communicating always use a respectful approach and be willing to listen, even if they interrupt before you have the chance to finish talking.

Large Upper Area

These people are thinkers – it is a good idea to give them all technical information and details. Don’t be afraid to use descriptive words and complex sentences – the more the better! To win them over you need to use logic and reason.

Large Middle Area

You don’t want to waste the time of these people. Show them how they will be the envy of their neighbors and co-workers and use lots of verbs and adjectives. People with a large middle area between their nose and mouth are usually after results, not caring too much about the people

Large Lower Area

Don’t press these people – make a connection first and then let them make up their own mind. The more relaxed and easygoing you are when talking to them, the better results you will get.

When pressured these people can feel discomfort and start avoiding you.

Protruding Cheeks and Big Jaws

These people are accustomed to getting their way. It is very important to show respect for their opinions and viewpoints – if you don’t do it they will probably not listen to you.

Getting them on your side can win over more people.

Pear Shaped Head

People with pear shaped heads like to be consulted. Ask for their opinion again and again and again, because when you won’t they will put up emotional walls. Once an emotional wall is erected it is very difficult to get around it.

Diamond Shaped Head

These people are usually very impatiant and they don’t have time to waste. If you want to win these people over you need to get to the point quickly – this is especially true if they also have high ears.

Freight Train Line

If these people get excited or start talking, they may be difficult to stop. Don’t worry – just wait patiently until they have finished and acknowledge their point of view before offering your position.

Reserved Features

These people have small mouths, thin lips, deep-set eyes and ears close to the head. They hold themselves in and are not outgoing. You cannot assume that you know what they are thinking or that they are agreeing when they nod their heads – that just means they heard what you said.

Face Reading – Eyes

It is often said that eyes are the mirror of the soul. Whenever reading a persons face it is important to take a good look at the eyes – they never lie.

Large Eye

Make sure that these people are looking at you when you are talking. These people take in information best when they can see it. If possible – use charts and draw pictures to make your point. This is also true for people with small ears.

Straight Bottom Lids

These people are mistrustful and suspicious – before you can win them over you need to gain their trust. Once the trust is established they will be your loyal supporters.

Eyes Angle Down

These people tend to look for problems. Don’t be too enthusiastic, and refrain from being jovial. They think that life is serious.

Eyes Angle Up

These people are the optimists. Tell them how great everything is going to be. They always expect everything to work out well.

Bulging Eyes

You may have a hard time trying to get your point across to these people, because they won’t stop talking. Be careful about interrupting because they may get their feelings hurt.

Recessed Eyes

These people look like they are agreeing with you when nodding their heads., but actually, they are analyzing everything and need some time to think things over. Don’t push them – just give them enough information so they can make up their own minds.

Face Reading – Eyebrows

Eyebrows and often considered to be a part of eyes but actually they are separate physical features – that’s also how how face reading experts treat them. It is important to read both features separately in order to get a good insight into the inner workings of a person.

Eyebrows are strong indicators of how a person thinks.

Straight Eyebrows

These are idea people. When trying to communicate a new idea, be sure that it is based on facts.

Continuous Eyebrows

These are powerful thinkers whose minds are always at work. Let them tell you some of their ideas and they will be happy.

Thin Eyebrows

These people need reassurance – especially if the eyebrows are high, round and pencil thin. They are also concerned with being judged, they want to be above reproach. When talking a sincere compliment can help pave way. You should also remember that these people are often self-conscious.

Tangled Eyebrows

These people will test your position by taking a devil’s advocate stance. Don’t start waffling when they challenge you – just explain your side and give facts. Don’t let them intimidate you – they just like to shake things up to test the validity of information.

Curved Eyebrows

These are people oriented individuals. Give them anecdotes and personal stories about whatever you are trying to get across. Explaining your idea to these people is not enough – you need to show how it works in the real world.

Angled Eyebrows

For a good relationship let them know that their opinions are important and allow them to feel in control. If possible, ask for their opinions and how you can assist them.

Managerial Eyebrows

It is OK to use all the details and technicalities with these people. You must know what you are talking about if you want them to trust you.

Winged Eyebrows

These people are visionaries. It’s best to use some facts but cut out excessive detail. Be ready to show the big picture and paint an enthusiastic vision of possibilities.

Face Reading – Nose

Straight Nose

These people respect logic. When communicating with them, avoid everything that is not clear and logical and stick to the facts. Try avoiding emotional appeals and have good answers when they question something.

Bump on Bridge of Nose

Take care not to make these people feel concerned. You can state your position as strongly as you want, but you must also stay open to their ideas if they become feisty.

These people consider themselves good negotiators.

Concave (ski jump)

These are people who respond to emotion. If you want them to accept an idea or buy a product, be sure to show them how good they will feel or how good it will make someone else feel.

Arched Nose

These people appreciate beauty and creative new approaches. Be willing to listen and appreciate their ideas and creative solutions.

They like when others have to implement their ideas.

Face Reading – Mouth

Our mouths are sources of huge amounts of vocal information, but what can they say to those willing to put their face reading abilities to the test?

Big gap in front teeth

These people can be unpredictable, but they are willing to take the risk. Given a choice between staying with what they’ve got, or taking a chance on it all, they will often choose to go for it.

Crooked bottom teeth

These people always see both sides of arguments and therefore can have trouble making up their minds. Reassuring them that they are making a good decision may be the most important feedback you can give them.

Mouth turns down

These people are wary of what others tell them. If you are trying to sell him something, it may be helpful to make a very balanced pitch by pointing out a few flaws or showing other alternatives to what you are selling. Your unexpected candor will help gain their trust.

Bigger upper lip

For these people it is important to be authentic. They connect less to what you say and more to what you are. A slick presentation may sound phony and they are quick to spot deception. When communicating with these people the best advice is to relax and be yourself.

Want to become a face reading expert?

This was only a short introductory course to face reading. If you now consider yourself to be a face reading expert you are deeply mistaken. True experts can distinguish between hundreds of facial features while this blog post only has 34 examples. For in depth face reading information I would suggest reading a book. While I haven’t been able to get my hands on all of them the 2 best one’s are definitely Amazing Face Reading and The Power of Face Reading. The first book is also where all the pictures are taken from.

I would be a bit skeptical about how accurate this idea of body language is simply because we are looking at physical features that people have no control over and cannot change (i.e. the shape of their nose or size of forehead) and using it to determine personality (which changes over time and is developed throughout life)

I don’t doubt that as generalizations these points hold up very well though and think these tips are good things to keep in mind no matter if a person fits the physical descriptions given or not.

No. Just no. Phrenology has been disproven for decades already.

If you want to read peoples faces better, I would reccomenr paul Ekman`s work instead. It has an advantage of being proven in clinical trials instead of 1870s belief that you can prove persons personality by the shape of their head.

Süsteem töötab.

Roman October 2, 2008 at 3:57 pm

Re, phrenology and face reading are different things – phrenology has nothing to do with specific facial features but a lot to do with the bumps on the head.
Paul Ekman is without doubt a genius but as much as I’ve heard about him on my psychology lectures here in Tallinn, his work is mostly about facial micro-expressions and emotions.
For myself I actually do not believe in neither phrenology or face reading but body language (something that also Ekman is known for) is a completely different thing.

In my career as a door-to-door salesman and making sales presentations to about 7000 different people – I never noticed that people with some facial expressions tended to act in a certain way. Body language, however, was a different way – there is no doubt in my mind that body language works!

This was hilarious. People really believe this crap?

Roman February 19, 2009 at 4:00 am

Yeah, some people do – but I agree, it sounds kind of too simplistic

desi February 28, 2009 at 1:34 pm

well this subject facinates me honestly i wish i could be able to perfect it. posibly help with the cops. or the goverment. even thought thats not why i want to learn this. i just beleave its facinating.

Jeevan Jaftap March 3, 2009 at 8:10 am

I want more information for the same

Rano March 23, 2010 at 3:55 am

wow, this is just one point on where i’ll disagree with u Roman.
some people do believe on that but i guess those are the people that wants to get carried away with it.

on like what they said about someone that has an “EYE ANGLED DOWN”
they said “such person tends to look for problems, refrain from being jovial and they think life is serious” but i think all that is bull-shit.

As for me, no matter how someones face is, or what the person looks like, if i take a look at the person’s eyes, whatsoever my mind tells me about that person is how related i’ll be to the person.

I’ll have myself to blame if anything happens because i made the decision, but who knows if that person will be the one to give u a helping hand in the future?

Roman March 23, 2010 at 1:21 pm

Rano, I tend to agree with you… I think that face reading is an art that is very difficult to prove right or wrong.
I guess we will have to wait and see to really find out weather face reading works or not!

Deepak July 22, 2011 at 9:27 am

I hav thik eyebrows and looks like vivekanads but small eys.
what thst means plz tell me.

anna August 23, 2011 at 7:20 am

There will always be some people to believe in a thing. I do believe in facial features, facial expressions and body language. Though there was no classification of simple small asian kind of nose. Though crooked below teeth ,gap in above teeth and arched eyebrows matches my personality.

Anna F. October 31, 2011 at 6:13 pm

Pretty sure this is crap. Having a bulb at the end of my nose means that I control the money? Honestly.

Denise July 24, 2012 at 8:01 am

If you re-read it again- it simply states that the person is CONCERNED about money, nothing about control…

dodge parts  January 20, 2012 at 6:01 am

posibly help with the cops. or the goverment. even thought thats not why i want to learn this. i just beleave its facinating.

ealiaspaul February 12, 2012 at 2:02 pm

by this we can analyse approximately a person/

Missllah February 12, 2012 at 4:03 pm

This is interesting, but I’ve found many things to be MUCH too general.

Humberto August 5, 2012 at 3:19 pm

I think we should all close our eyes and hug each other.
