Face in the Mirror

So I just found out about face reading, and though I far from totally believe in that type of stuff I think it's really fun to read about and see what's supposed to be true. So for today, I'm going to read my face. Obviously this'll be taken with a grain of salt both because it's a psuedo-science AND because I'm no face reading expert, but why not! It's just for fun anyway :)

But brace yourselves folks, this is a long one.

The Face Shape/Profile

An oval face apparently means you're calm and objective and, while you can be discreet when need be, you're very open with the people you care about. However this also means you're very reserved and tend to go into your shell. You hide your sensitivity, feelings and emotions. You value truth and objectivity and understand the world to be complex. As a rule, therefore, you dislike decision-making that is black or white and permanent.

A convex face means you're an optimist with a happy disposition.

The Hair
I have both fine and thick hair because of my parents, but more fine than thick. So
fine, delicate, and silky hair means you are sensitive and also likely to be fragile physically, especially if you are of a slender build.

The Eyes

Arguably one of the most important parts of the face, or so they say.

Steady eyes with a firm gaze reflects a solid and persevering nature and a person of stability and forthright disposition.

Wide-set eyes mean a character is more tolerant and and broadminded in perspective. People of this class may present a flagrant disregard for authority and advice. In respect of career, these types need room to breathe. Give them plenty of space to explore their creative potential. At times these types possess too broad and superficial an opinion.

Dark brown eyes ... the darkness means you're of a more forceful nature, and the brown represents your devotion in love and friendship. Brown eyes usually indicate considerable generosity.
(However, I also often wear deep green contacts and have always been attracted to green eyes both on others and myself. I've been told it compliments my appearance well. Green pretty much means highly energized people who are highly inventive in both practical and personal affairs.)

The Eyebrows

The eyebrows are strong indicators of how a person thinks. Often a developed brow line shows an observant individual with high degrees of dexterity or ability with the hands (engineers, electronics, architects, etc.).

Arched eyebrows are opinionated.

The Nose

Let's just say I do not have the ideal nose - which is a high, straight, full and fleshy tip with gently flared but protected nostrils.

Short snubbed noses mean people who are friendly but also secretive and have slow meticulous approaches to life.

The Mouth/Philtrum

The philtrum is the groove on the upper lip and below the nose. A clearly marked, deep and long philtrum means it augurs well for strong and healthy levels of energy and vitality.

Lips that are full and round are sensuous and convey that a person is caring and sensitive. If the lips are large, it means an expensive and somewhat luxurious taste -- but an expressive and generous temperament nonetheless.

Upper lips that are bigger than the lower mean you are loving, since the size of the upper lip represents the ability to love and the lower lip represents need for love. Bigger upper lips also prioritize authenticity. They connect less to what you say and more to what you are, and are quick to spot deception.

Upwardly curled lips indicate someone who is cordial and optimistic with a sunny disposition.

The Chin/Jaw/Cheeks

This is also kind of a sore point for me because I've always had big cheeks, lacked a defined jawline, and that sculpted 7-shaped profile between your chin and your neck. But, it is slightly comforting to know someone as gorgeous as Kaley Cuoco has similar attributes.

Anywayyy! A broader, round chin is symbolic of generosity and good humour as opposed to a narrow or pointed chin (which I've actually always been jealous of). Weak jaws indicate flexibility.
The stronger the cheeks the more authoritative you are. While not particularly high-set, they're fleshy and have full body, which indicate good chances of all-around happiness!
Woot! High-five, Kaley!

The Accuracy

People are inevitably going to look at their results and, for the most part, say "That's SO true!" But that's the thing about psuedo-sciences like face reading or astrology ... they're kind of generalized in a way that fits pretty much anybody. So it's pretty safe to say that I was expecting such results and am pretty satisfied, though all of it obviously isn't the most true. Every person's different, we're not defined any more by our facial construction or astrological signs or blood types than things that are less easy to measure or see. But it's fun every now and then to take tests like these and wonder how much truth could lie within these theories.
But I guess we'll never really know. Not for awhile anyway ^_^
