You're revealing a lot without saying a word.
You can learn a whole lot about a person just by looking at their face. Communicating face-to-face is a valuable tool for getting to know someone, and/or deciding the best course of action when dealing with a problem relating to a partner or loved one.
In a recent Cosmopolitan article, they discuss the ancient art of Chinese face reading, and the consistent characteristics of certain facial shapes. Jean Haner, author of the book The Wisdom of Your Face, believes that just by studying the face, you can tell how people think, feel, and act.
You may have a straight-up diamond or rectangle shaped face, or you might be a combination of two types, but no matter what face shape you have, you can bet it's telling the world all kinds of secrets about you.
1. Zooey Deschanel: Heart-shaped face
You have a heart-shaped face if you have a large forehead and your face tapers towards the chin, forming an inverted triangle. People with heart-shaped faces are intelligent, deep thinkers who love to learn new things as often as possible.
They're very intuitive, creative, and have an inner strength. They're stubborn, pushy, and tend to have financial difficulties in tough financial times.
2. Kristen Wiig: Rectangle-shaped face
If you have a strong forehead, a wide jawline and a broad chin, you have a rectangular-shaped face. You value logic and you're a really good thinker and planner.
In fact, you have a tendency to over think things, and hold in your emotions. You get rid of all that pent up emotional energy and over-thinking by going to the gym a lot.
3. Ali Larter: Triangle-shaped face
Your face is triangle-shaped if it's narrower at the forehead and wide (or flames out) at the jawline. You're extroverted, assertive, social, love people, and enjoy being in charge.
You can also have control and anger issues, and you lean toward impatient. But your drive and people skills will lead you to success.
4. Viola Davis: Diamond-shaped face
If the widest part of your face is in the middle with a pointed chin, you have a diamond-shaped face. Diamond-shaped people are often perfectionists, and are confident, strong-willed people who are great leaders.
But they can be quick to get angry, and are often unpredictable. They seem to achieve success later in life, but sometimes never find success in relationships.
5. Sandra Bullock: Square-shaped face
You have a square face shape if you have both a wide hairline and jawline. Square-faced people are also known as earth face because they're down to earth, good at decision-making, trustworthy, and competitive.
They aren't easily influenced by other people and have a tendency to be too conservative at times.
6. Carey Mulligan: Oval-shaped face
Some people refer to oval as the perfect face shape, and it certainly is the most versatile when it comes to hairstyles. You have an oval face if your face is three parts long to two parts wide, and the width of your face is about one-third less than the length, with no corners to your face.
If you're an oval-shaped person, you know the right thing to say, and always can make someone feel welcome and comfortable. You have a high I.Q., have a lot of ideas, and are very diplomatic.
However, you can get too focused on saying the right things and tell people what you think they want to hear.
