What Does John Boehner's Face Tell Us About Him?

He is highly intolerant of any view but his.  He is an idealist.  He needs order and structure in his life.  He will probably never think he is wrong.  He has difficult mood changes.  Definitely a "my way, or the highway" personality.

Mr. Boehner likes to be in the limelight.  He will jump to conclusions without forethought.  He believes himself!

How to Tell If A Woman Is Going To Be Successful In Business

"As strange as it may sound, the ratio of index to ring finger correlates with traits such as spatial ability, risk-taking, and assertiveness. It's connected to success in competitive sports like soccer and skiing. Rustichini's own work has connected it to real-life success, such as the profitability of London high-frequency financial traders."

Genetics Are Awesome!

"Ulric Collette is a French-Canadian photographer who does some quirky portrait work. In his photo series “Genetic Portraits” he photographs family members and then cuts them side by side to create one portrait. The end result makes you notice the similarities between the people photographed, and how fascinating genetics really are. One really cool thing I noticed, is if you cover one half of the image with your hand, and then the other half, you can clearly picture how different each person is, but then when you look at them both, you notice so many similarities."  Meredith Taylor, July 8, 2013

Eyes that angle downward....

David, age 3, with eyes angling upward slightly.

Age 13.  Any difference yet?

Still about the same as before.

Aha!  What's happened here?  Look at the distinctive downturn of the eyes.

A recent photo of David.  Now age 47 and using his Critical Perception for many years in his exacting work.

Let's ask David Ross what he thinks happened in his life to create this increased level of being able to see what is wrong!  And how does it affect his work and personal life?

How Sensitive is He?

He just makes you want to smile, doesn't he!  But with that incredibly fine hair, he is extremely sensitive to everything that goes on around him.

Messages from the Face....

Why do you think he yawned when he plead not guilty?  

Clue:  look at his upturned mouth.

Mansour to lead Egypt

Just notice the expressionless eyes on newly named President Mansour, his hooded eyelids, and the upturned mouth vs. the down-turned mouth in the current photo.  You don't need to be a professional face reader to understand that he is hiding himself and life as the Chief Justice has soured him.

DNA and Reading Faces

I have been thinking a lot about DNA and individual physiognomy.  I've also started dreaming about teaching face reading (Personology as it was termed by Judge Edward Vincent Jones many decades ago).  Last night I dreamt that I was invited to teach boy and girl scouts how to read faces!  Portent of things to come maybe?

Sunday, June 30, 2013

Published in April 1953, amazing article about Robert L. Whiteside:

Laura Rose teaches face-reading during a class October 2009 at Spiritual Services & Ceremonies, 615 Lyon St. NE., Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Maybe you can’t judge a book by its cover.

But when it comes to your face, Laura Rose is going to nail you.

By simply gazing at your countenance, Rose says she can discern your degree of friendliness, level of energy, sense of humor, appreciation of music, sensitivity to criticism, subjectivity to mood swings and a whole lot more.

I believe her, because she read my face — and she told me a lot about myself no mere stranger should be able to unearth on a first meeting.

Like how I’ve got a soft spot for the underdog. Can’t stop a project until it’s finished. Easily irritated by judgmental people. And some other stuff that, frankly, I’m not too comfortable putting into print.

I’m not the only one impressed by Rose, a New Mexico resident who spent last week working with patrons of Nature’s Spiritual Connections, a cozy storefront on Grand Rapids’ Northeast Side.

“We just think it’s important to know how other people live,” says Falan, who has a degree in business management, “and we’d like to help educate the public, bring them together so there are fewer misconceptions — more joy in life.”

To that end, they invited Rose to town for the better part of a week. To cap it off, she taught a one-night course in face-reading Thursday.

Patti Weaver of Kentwood was among those attending. Particularly significant to Rose was the area between Weaver’s eye and the bridge of her nose. Rose told Weaver she obviously had been working to become more tolerant, patient and accepting of others.

Weaver, 75, was impressed.

“I have been working on those three aspects of my life,” she said, “especially in becoming less judgmental.”

Pam Patrick also attended the Thursday-night session.

“I was blown out of the water,” said the registered nurse at Spectrum Health’s Butterworth campus.

Patrick wishes she had been instructed reading faces long ago for informal use as another tool in assessing patients the past 21 years. As the mother of a son in law enforcement, she also wondered whether face-reading might help police.

Face-reading was first practiced by the ancient Greeks and Chinese. More recently, it has become known as physiognomy — the study of outward characteristics (sometimes called “personology”) — and used to determine personality traits.

For Rose, the road to face-reading began while she was peddling water softeners door-to-door in remote Idaho. While pitching her wares, a customer stopped her and said, “If you had known how to read my face, you would have approached me entirely differently.”

Rose was speechless, then intrigued, and eventually hooked, especially when the woman “told me things I didn’t think anyone would know about me.”

She went home to tell her husband, “I just met a woman, and what she knows is going to change our lives.”

Rose studied under the customer and her sister and became so practiced at face-reading she has been hired by companies trying to better know their employees and lawyers who want an edge picking juries.

Her work focuses on the appearance and relative position of the eyes, eyebrows, forehead, nose, lips, chin — even one’s hair.

Folks with fine hair are generally more sensitive than those with coarse. A full upper lip signals a chatty-Kathy. A bulbous nose means you’re inquisitive. Tight skin? You’re a fuss-budget.

Sure, there are exceptions, but Rose points to anecdotal information and statistical evidence compiled by those who have gone before her, data you and I can find as easily as Googling “physiognomy.”

My session with Rose lasted perhaps 30 minutes — she typically charges about $40 for a reading — and like I said, I was surprised at her ability to characterize me.

The most unusual, and true, thing she said was this: “You’re reading less than you want.”

It’s true, perhaps now more than ever.

“How do you know that?” I nearly shouted.

“I’m reading your face, Tom.”

Traits in a face
In a book recommended by Laura Rose, “You Can Read a Face Like a Book,” author Naomi Tickle links facial characteristics with famous people:
  • Narrow space between the eyes: Likely not too tolerant. Examples: John McEnroe, Cher, Monica Seles, Barbra Streisand.
  • Eyelids covered with a fold of skin: You’re analytical. Examples: Tom Hanks, James Coburn, Margaret Thatcher.
  • An upturned nose: You’re trusting. Just like Elton John, Jennifer Aniston and Dolly Parton.
  • A full lower lip: You’re generous with money. Examples: Jimmy Carter, Al Gore, Richard Branson.
  • A long philtrum: (Hint: It’s the space between your upper lip and nose.) Means you have a dry sense of humor. Think: David Letterman, George W. Bush, Colin Powell.
  • Head wider at back than at front: You’re highly competitive, like William Hague, Vladimir Putin, Condoleeza Rice.
