This may seem a little odd to you, but the shape of your face can tell a lot about your personality. If you didn’t know that before, now you do!
The art of palmistry divines the hidden meanings in the shapes and patterns of our hands. But did you know that reading the face is also a psychic art? From ancient times face reading, or physiognomy, has been used as a method of divination to gain insight into personality, individual gifts, and personal relationships.
An expert in face reading, Jean Haner has written the book The Wisdom of Your Face, and in it, she says that most people have a different combination of face shapes. For instance, some people’s face can be a mixture of round and square or oval, and some even have a shape face that you cannot even clearly identify.
Believe it or not, there is a real science behind this post.
Haner says in her book that her techniques for face reading originate from a 3,000 years old study on Chinese medicine. the shape of your face reveals your personality, but your general approach to life as well. Your face can be seen as a map of your character and your entire life.
This is a list of the six types of face shapes and what they reveal about you and your personality. Lets us know if you find your results accurate, in the comments!
Oval Face Shape
The oval shape is portrayed by a wider forehead than the cheekbones, which, on the other hand, are wider than the jaw. In other words, the face tapers down as you look towards the chin, and the cheekbones are prominent.
The person whose face has this shape always knows what to say in a given situation, and can make other people feel at peace, welcome and comfortable. However, they can sometimes be too concentrated on saying the right things. They really do care what others think of them.
Long Face Shape
This shape means that the face is rather elongated and stretched from the forehead to the chin. Some people with this face shape also have prominent chin.
These people are pretty detail oriented and want to do everything in their own way. Also, the work they finish is of top quality. Preciseness is another of their characteristics, and is especially seen in their words. They can communicate very well. Still, sometimes they can be sharp with the words if you get in their way.
Round Face Shape
This type of face is almost equally wide and long. Also, it is recognizable by an extensive hairline. The widest parts of the face are the cheeks.
People who have this type of face are communicative, kind and generous. They put others’ needs before theirs, often attracting narcissistic and they often wind up not getting what they want from the relationship. In the end, these people realize that they give too much and that they should not make other people priority.
Square Face Shape
These people have a wider jaw line and hairline. The jaw line, the forehead and the cheeks are almost equally wide. The most prominent characteristic is the bony jaw line in the shape of a square.
People that have this face shape are thought to be pretty intelligent and analytical. Haner says that this type of face shape is characteristic for people who take big projects because of their stamina.
Heart Face Shape
Haner claims that people who have this face shape, both men and women, have a bit pointy chin. The width of the face narrows towards the chin, meaning that the forehead is broad and prominent.
People who have this face shape have incredible inner strength. If they want to achieve something and if they set a goal, they will pursue it. Their strength is inner, and it should not be mistaken for stamina. These people are pretty intuitive as well, and pretty creative. If they determine to succeed in something, they can be very pushy.
Diamond or Triangle Face Shape
This face shape is also known as the Pear face shape. This face is narrow in the forehead area and wide at the jaw-line. Usually, it is pretty angular and almost bony. It is possibly the rarest face shape.
People who have this face shape usually want to be in charge. The narrower the face is at the top, the more are these people bossy. Also, people with this face shape are thought to be successful.
