We are often taught not to judge a book by its cover. And of course it’s a great and eloquent way of saying that people are more than their looks and that you should really appreciate a person’s character and who they are on the inside and pay more attention to what they say and do, instead of just judging him by his looks. But have you ever felt that you can tell what kind of person someone is just by looking at their face? Is this reprehensible? is wrong Well, it turns out that a person’s face can reveal a lot about them.
We can all more or less read body language, which has a lot to do with how we stand, which muscles we use more, etc. For example, when a person is shy or scared, they tend to withdraw into themselves and tense up, which is easy to read. You can always spot a shy person in a room full of people. Using this logic, you can do the same with reading faces, after all we have quite a few of them on our faces and it would make sense that the ones we use the most would be the most prominent. So, for example, if a person has a lot of wrinkles on his forehead, you can assume that he worries a lot. Or if they have these lines between their eyebrows, they’re either angry or very confused because they furrow their brows. But a People reader from Australia has an even more fascinating theory.
Alan Stevens, a “people reader” from Australia says that as much as you can read body language, you can also read faces and they can tell you quite a lot. According to him, you can determine how friendly a person is by judging the distance between the top of the eyes and the eyebrows. Apparently, people who have a greater distance to the eyebrows prefer more personal space than those with a smaller distance.
According to Stevens, you can tell a person’s natural level of confidence based on the width and length of their face. People whose faces are more than 60% wider than they are long are more confident than those whose faces are narrower.
One’s tolerance for mistakes can be measured by the distance between the eyes. People with wide-set eyes tend to be more tolerant of mistakes and misunderstandings, while people with close-set eyes are less tolerant.
4. Generosity of speech
Allen concluded that you can tell how talkative a person is by the thickness of their lips. People with thinner lips are more laconic and less talkative, while those with fuller lips are more generous in their speech.
5. A sense of humor
Stevens defines this by the length of the philtrum, which is the little grove we have between the nose and the upper lip. People with a longer filter tend to have a good sense of humor and appreciate sarcasm. Those with a shorter filter are more likely to take the joke personally and get offended.
The size of a person’s eyelid crease, according to Stevens, is a good indicator of how they tend to make their decisions. Those with a thicker fold are more analytical in their approach, they take their time, look at the pros and cons, compare and contrast, and really analyze the situation before making a decision. Those with a thinner or no crease are more action-oriented and quick to make decisions.
