‘Do you ever wonder why some people don’t seem to “get” you?
Have you ever felt you just didn’t “connect” with a business prospect?
Are you enjoying lots of first dates, but second dates don’t happen?
The answers are literally staring you in the face!
‘The most unforgettable and unique feature of a human is his/her face. A trained face reader can read each facial feature and line on a face to develop an accurate profile of its owner. Each face reflects in its structures and lines its owner’s personal history, mental attitudes, intimacy needs, ethics, emotional style, and verbal communication. Almost anything you want to know about a person is literally as plain as the nose on their face. Face reading gives you the facts you need to make important decisions, and alerts your perceptions to develop a deeper understanding of every person you will ever interact with.’ –– Lin Klaassen, Facereadingsbylin.com
WESTERN STYLE FACE READING
THE FOUR BASIC FACE SHAPES
You can easily recognise a “watery”, emotional human being as the short and stocky type. If your facial shape and body structure is distinctly rounded and tending to a somewhat fleshy look, you’ll fall into this category. Another designation for you is an endomorph. (the entirety)
Your hair is a measure of physical insulation, endurance and overall strength. If your hair is fine, delicate and silky, you are sensitive and also likely to be fragile physically especially if you are of a slender build. Thick wiry hair is an indication of your physical prowess and your resilience in life. You have great recuperative powers and may like a challenge in life.
The Forehead can be broadly categorised as follows – A wide forehead expresses your cleverness and practicality – being someone capable of executing duty diligently. This gives you high idealism and a wealth of ideas. A high rounded and deep forehead depicts your idealism, but with a focus on strong friendship. A narrow forehead is considered an obstacle to fulfilment,especially in social situations. Constraints in family life. Need to think things through. (cont.)
The late Princess Diana and Michael Jackson share a feature of the eyes. They possess floating irises also known as sampaku. The whites are visible under the iris. This indicates an inner turbulence – a person at odds with the world. Though spiritual in nature, they are hard to please or understand and have very high expectations of others. Martin Luther King and Abraham Lincoln also shared these traits. (the entirety)
The eyebrow speaks of reputation, fame and temperament too. In many cases I have found a developed brow line also shows a high degree of dexterity or ability with the hands (engineers, electronics, civil engineers, drafts persons and architects). Individuals who are observant and who have to combine refined measurements with dexterity will have the brow line well developed. (cont.)
The Ideal nose has a high, straight, full and fleshy tip with gently flared but protected nostrils. The fleshy tip indicates cordiality and warmth of personality. Deep empathy with others. Set high standards for themselves and are good mannered (Lailin). Oversized nose tip results in violent tendencies. The larger – the more prone to an act of violence. (the entirety)
The groove on the upper lip, below the nose is worth mentioning. It is called the philtrum. If it is clearly marked, deep and long, it augurs well for a strong and healthy energy levels and vitality. Flat, weak and unpronounced philtrums are a mark of reduced life force and drive.
If the lips are large it means an expensive and somewhat luxurious taste – but an expressive and generous temperament nonetheless. Often the large mouthed person can be very vocal under pressure, needing to verbalise, sometimes excessively, their dissatisfaction and frustration. (the entirety)
This relates to the stamina of the individual and the stronger the jaw line the greater the degree of stamina and endurance. People with very strong jaw lines can sometimes be considered stubborn. If the jaw line exceeds the balance of other features in the face, don’t be too hasty in your judgement as this may simply mean a person who has strong convictions and who is not easily swayed by the opinions of others. (cont.)
The ears should exhibit good, fleshy inner and outer helixes. Thin and poorly shaped outer helixes may reveal diminishing health. (the entirety)
In describing the ideal cheeks, Santa Clause may spring to mind with his rosy and shiny set of chubby cheeks. But according to eastern opinion, the excessively shiny cheek is indicative of digestive trouble. The cheeks are a pretty good barometer of health changes from time to time. Keep a close watch on your own biological gauge your cheeks. (the entirety)
TWENTY CELEBRITY FACE READINGS
1. The Face of Ozzy Osbourne: Ozzy’s outspoken manner has worked both for and against the famous rock star but at least he is dead honest! We are also aware of his trying health throughout the last two years and this is due to the hand of Saturn. His physical condition may yet have to suffer even more because of this. Notwithstanding the success of his television show and record sales, financial concerns after 2006 will also cause quite a bit of strain on him and his family. He will now need to carefully assess his fortunes in the light of this declining health. At heart Ozzy is kind and loving but has always exceeded his capacity for temperance. He obviously works and plays very hard. If Ozzy can sort out his finances just now, the next eighteen months will continue to be very successful for him and his popularity will increase as well. Some karmic influence with his eldest child will create a breakthrough in that relationship.

CHINESE FACE READING: THE WOOD FACE
The wood type has a long face and long nose, a broad and high forehead and narrow cheeks. The eyes should have a kindly look, and the hair and eyebrows should not be thick or wiry. The forehead should be high and wide in wood as mental direction is important for this elemental type. Wood has the energy of growth, seeing the overall picture and a vision of the future, planning and seeing through projects. Wood types with balanced faces are leaders, administrators and organisers with strong ideals. They are capable of shouldering much responsibility and willing to work for the benefit of others. They need to grow and achieve, as this is the way they learn about themselves and their path in life. One of the challenges of the wood element is to be able to “see the wood for the trees” and not get enmeshed in structures. The Chinese say that a balanced wood face is a pre-requisite for Government. THE FIRE FACE The fire type also has a long face with narrow, prominent cheekbones, pointed chin and a more pointed forehead than the wood type. They may have freckles, red, curly or wiry hair, rapid speech and quick body movements. The fire element brings warmth and enthusiasm to the personality with a capacity to inspire and get people “fired up”. They are active and outdoorsy, goal centred, fast paced and adventurous. They can sometimes take crazy risks, and constantly seek stimulation and excitement. THE EARTH FACE Earth personalities are characterised by short square faces with distinct jawlines, sallow complexions, thickset bodies and deep voices. The features can be large, especially the mouth which relates to the stomach and intestines. Earth has the ability to be still and to build a solid base in life. THE METAL FACE The metal face is oval with widely set, chevron cheekbones and a pale complexion. Usually good looking, they have clear, shining eyes with a lot of energy coming out of them. The eyebrows are pale, the speech is clipped and the hair is usually straight. They are good advisers, lawyers and counsellors. Metal is the element of the mind and so they are strong willed and solve their own problems. A good sense of humour, lively outlook and hardworking attitudes are all facets of metal at its best. At its worst, it can become toxic with negative thoughts, cut off and caustic, with a “why is this happening to me?” mentality. Metal types also make good teachers and healers. When depressed, they suffer with diseases of the respiratory system and lower intestines. It is important for them to breathe deeply to let in the heavenly Qi and to make sure that they eat good quality food with lots of minerals, and stay away from junk food which can be difficult for them to eliminate. They tend to respond well to psychotherapy, homoeopathy, Bach flower remedies and treatment protocols which are rational and well thought out. To feel happy, they need to express their creativity or the bright shining metal gets dull and rusty. Classic metal faces: Charlotte Rampling and Lauren Bacall who used their metal creativity in their acting careers. THE WATER FACE Water personalities can be recognised by their round, chubby, soft faces and sometimes, rotund bodies. Large soft eyes are a water feature as is dark hair and colouring. Water people are quiet and gentle, much ruled by sensation and susceptible to any appeal to the emotions. They are good communicators and storytellers and are sensitive, and aware of trends either at work or society. They can be psychic and make good listeners, carers and counsellors. There is an aliveness and vitality about clear water which can attract what it needs like a magnet, unlike wood types, for example, who decide what they want and then make a plan about how to get it. If the water is clear, they have strong reserves and the ability to flow freely in any situation. If it gets stagnant through unexpressed emotions, the skin can develop a blue tinge with dark rings under the eyes. Chinese Face Reading for Health
THE EFFECT OF REALISTIC APPEARANCE OF VIRTUAL CHARACTERS IN IMMERSIVE ENVIRONMENTS
by Katja Zibrek, Elena Kokkinara and Rachel McDonnell
Virtual reality, in which people have particular or all their senses completely immersed in an artificially created world, is becoming important in areas such as education, medicine, entertainment, etc. Currently, major corporations such as Facebook, are investigating the efficacy of communication between avatars in virtual reality, since users will be able to modify the appearance of their own self-representations. However, the appearance of an avatar could influence the way a mes- sage is communicated: the seriousness of an emotional situation, for example, could be assessed as unimportant simply because it is com- municated with an unrealistic virtual character. This could have crucial consequences in applications, such as medicine and training, where the accuracy of transmitted information is vital.
When addressing the question of how the appearance of the virtual character influences one’s perception, the most common concern is that of visual realism. The uncanny valley, proposed by Mori, describes a negative response from the user who is observing a near photo–realistic character. While the existence of the uncanny valley is still an ongoing investigation, the most common problem is the variety of stimuli used to represent increasing levels of realism. In our research, we approached this problem by designing levels of visual realism of a character by changing its render style1, while keeping the realism of motion and shape constant.
The second concern is – does realism matter in an immersive environment? Previous studies have put more importance on matching behavior and appearance of the character, but proposed that the interaction between behaviour and appearance is complex. To study one such behavior which is commonly expe- rienced in real life interactions with people, we designed characters, who exhibit personality traits. We expected that the type of personality would interact with the character’s appearance, where negative person- alities might either lower the appeal of unpleasant looking characters, or might actually make them more appealing due to the match between appearance and expected behaviours. The novelty of our study is there- fore, that we looked at complex but naturally present behavior when observing other people (personality traits), and we limited the concept of realism to only changing the render style of the character, without modifying the actual geometry or motion of the virtual character’s model.
To establish a possible relationship between personality and render style in virtual reality and how it mediates the response towards virtual characters, we created an immersive, game–like scenario experiment, and displayed it to members of the general public, visitors to a Science Gallery Dublin2 exhibition. Because of this, we were able to collect responses on an exceptionally large sample (1106 individuals). This study provides a valuable insight into how the character’s appearance influences our response to virtual characters and the role the character’s personality plays in perception. Our contribution to the field extends the question in an engaging, virtual reality environment, and provides guidelines for this developing platform. (continued)

p.s. Hey. ** Joseph Mills, Hi. Well, you’ve shown up under your full name, but the commenting section section is very glitchy — some people can’t even see them, for instance — and irreparably so, apparently, so all bets are always off when commenting here these days, sadly. But welcome back! I hear you on the dread. I’m assuming it’s like here, i.e. masks, plastic partitions, and hand washing stations, and I guess in your case a lot of book sanitising? I hope it’s a surprising pleasure in practice. Possible? ** David Ehrenstein, I get the interesting as a phenom thing, and her using her considerable power for the good is a big, big plus. ** Misanthrope, Ah. I think manga/anime is a great form, but I hear you. Learning experience: yes, one can hope he’s learning. And, yes, do put some of your kind of generosity in service of yourself, buddy. ** _Black_Acrylic, Hi, B. The thing I’m working on re: Guro is very early on, so I’m not sure what it’ll be or what form it’ll take quite yet. I like that name: Jon_e. You know, it will very likely be that what you see as overly Bateman-ish will not seem so whatsoever to outsiders. It’s funny how that works. ** Right. Here’s a curious, very old, formerly dead post that I thought I would re-foist on you. Hopefully I did the right thing. See you tomorrow.
