There are many surprising and fascinating aspects of Chinese culture. Many really incredible folk stories and much ancient wisdom has survived until this day. We can learn a lot from some of the old Chinese traditions. One of this old wisdom is the idea that the shape of your face reveals a lot about a person’s character. Another interesting idea is that you can tell how authentic a person is by comparing the attributes linked to the shape of the person’s face with their actual behavior. If they are roughly the same, the person is authentic.
Definitely a very interesting point of view and something that you might want to consider if you are wondering if a person you are interacting with is acting naturally or being pretentious. Obviously, this can also be quite harsh, as this ancient wisdom is obviously not always right. However, learning about a person as much as possible even during the first interaction could help us avoid a lot of headaches. This knowledge comes really handy in dating situations, where people try to show their best features on the first interaction.
On the next pages, you will find out a lot more about this ancient Chinese tradition and what it says about the different types of faces.
People with diamond-shaped faces are known for being bossy, while at the same time having amazing attention to detail. It seems like this face is really suitable for bosses. Has your boss sharp facial features as well? Maybe it’s not a coincidence that western science also attributes the mentioned character traits to a face with large cheekbones (typical for this shape).
People with a child-like, round faces are easily manipulated according to Chinese face reading techniques. This makes a lot of sense! Because these people have a child-like appearance, more people feel inclined to try to manipulate them as they think that behind a “doll-face” lies a child-like person. After all, it is very easy to manipulate children as well. People with round faces should be very much aware of this to avoid getting lied to because of their youthful appearance.
It is not a coincidence! Oval-shaped faces indicate extroverted personalities and therefore are often found in celebrities. Oval-shaped faces are known to appear attractive and sociable. On the other hand, people with this shape also tend to be overly conscious about what others think of them. Yet again, a trait many celebrities also seem to share!
This shape is known to indicate personality types that tend to overthink. According to the Chinese, this is because people with a face shaped like this tend to have very big foreheads. Foreheads are not just associated with overthinking though, they are also connected to a high level of intelligence and logical thinking. It’s definitely not a bad thing to belong to this facial category!
This shape looks a lot like an upside-down egg and is known to indicate stubborn traits. This might also lead to another trait associated with this facial shape: power. This shape is often also called heart-shaped as this obviously sounds a lot nicer. It would be interesting to compare some of the rich and influential global leaders and see if they tend to boast this facial shape.
Another shape that is indicative of power and authority is the one resembling a square. This is largely due to the hard-working and ambitious nature of people with a square-shaped heart. They also tend to be very competitive according to Chinese wisdom. This shape is typical for people who have advanced far on their respective career ladders so the next time you come across someone you don’t know who has this type of face, you need to be careful, it might be your next boss!
