There's more to your face than meets the eye.
Humans are fascinating in that each one of us has very distinct features. Even within a singular family, you may find one person with a strong jaw or another with perfectly angled cheekbones. And to many of us, these facial features strongly impact how we go on to be perceived by others.
So, what do your facial features say about your personality type?
1. Puffy lips mean you have great people skills.
"Puffy lips are built by estrogen (in both men and women) — so is the soft, small nose. These people are likely to be quite imaginative, more intuitive, have better people skills and are more emotionally expressive," says Dr. Helen Fisher, Chief Scientific Advisor to Match and an Anthropologist.
2. People with an angular face are more assertive.
"A very angular face with high forehead, heavy brow ridges, high cheek bones and angular jaw is built by testosterone. These people might be more assertive, direct and decisive, and tough-minded," says Dr. Fisher.
3. A wide forehead means you're clever.
The shape, width, even contour of your forehead can say a lot about you. A wide forehead may say you're clever, while a deep forehead may say you're a good friend.
4. A sharp jawline signifies success.
According to Dr. Weintraub, a sharp jaw line and good chin projection signifies success and control.
5. Angled eyebrows mean you're sensitive.
The arch of our brow can reveal a lot about us. While your curved brow may reveal that you're creative, straight brows reveal that you're strong-willed and assertive. And angled brows show that you're sensitive and private with your feelings.
6. People with a full face are healthier.
"A full face with angled cheek bones, a sharp chin and pouty lips says, 'I have healthy genes,'" says Weintraub.
7. Big eyes mean you're highly intelligent.
Big, bright eyes signify mental sharpness, and a strong ability to concentrate and be direct, Weintraub says.
A study by CyberPulse found that "34 percent of participants considered people with brown eyes intelligent, kind, and trustworthy. In contrast, people with blue eyes were considered kind, sweet, and sexy, but only 7 percent of participants described blue-eyed people as intelligent ... 29 percent of research participants said they considered green eyes the sexiest of all the different colors, and their owners to be creative, sexy ... and a bit devious."
