The Physiognomy is a science or an art, because it has the category of science that seeks to discover the nature and the psychological characteristics of people from their facial details and cranial structure.
However, Physiognomy has more than 3,000 years old, the Chinese called Xiang-Miang or the art of reading faces, but has been observed and practiced by numerous people of science, to the point that it has become a pseudoscience called PSYCHOMORPHOLOGY that the French psychiatrist Louis Corman (1901-1995) and described in 1937 and is now taking up a certain momentum for their practical applications in the business world, in the selection of personnel and criminology.
From always been said that the face is the mirror of the soul. Sure enough, as there are many factors in human life that end up leaving an indelible mark on his face (an individual end up laughing permanent wrinkles showing on both sides of the mouth), including psychological factors (a prolonged state of concern can leave permanent marks on the forehead) or genetic (eg explosiveness, almost volcanic denoting and bushy eyebrows together).
HOW IT WORKS
Physiognomy is based on the connection between each one of the three main areas of the face and some very specific parts of the body:
1) The mental or intellectual zone (forehead and eyebrows), shows the intellectual capacity of humans as it is part of the area that houses the brain.
2) The affective or emotional area (nose, eyes, ears) is a reflection of the individual’s emotional life, because the nose, through the respiratory tract, has direct access to the chest and the heart, this latter has always been considered the repository of a person’s feelings.
3) The material or sensitive area (lips, mouth, chin), through its connection from the mouth to the stomach and belly is the indicator of the material and instinctive life.
Therefore, the area of the face that outstands the other two will inform us about the Mental, the Affective or the Sensitive prevalence in the character of the person studied. However, although one area may be predominant, the elements of the other areas must also be taken into account.
Moreover, a face may show two areas equally outstanding; while, in the not very frequent case that the three areas might be equal compared to each other, such situation would denote a person whose mind is especially well-balanced.
Two important tips: take into account and try to evaluate a detail of a face only when it clearly outstands and do not reach a conclusion before at least two indicators point towards the same direction.
By the way, a good picture allows to accurately evaluate the height or size of the zones and the measures of other details, such as the distance between the eyes, in order to determine further analysis.
