Cafe Suzanne stopping by Healthy Living ...
Do you know this person?
My "reading" says she's happy
Ever feel like you know someone even though you've never met before? According to Jean Haner, a facial feature expert and the author of The Wisdom of Your Face, our faces are blueprints for who we really are inside. Bony noses and sunken cheeks indicate spiritual sensitivity, eyebrows exude confidence, and big ears mean someone is a risk taker.
In an interview with the New York Daily News, Haner says she can tell which supermarket clerk will scan her groceries the fastest just by looking at their face. Facial features can help you decide who to date (uh, no kidding!), who to be friends with, who to trust with your kids, even who you should invest your money with. Bernard Madoff? Not so much. According to Haner, Madoff's face says, "I care about you—and your money." But his eyes are deep-set and slant down, which indicates he may do the dishonest thing, and his lips are barely visible, which means he doesn't care as much as you think.
Haner also "read" Barack Obama's features. She says the President's face shows he's highly independent—his big ears suggest a strong sense of confidence and an ability to take risks, and his narrow jawline shows that he's willing to listen to other people's opinions.
Wrinkles are good, says Haner. Thinly plucked eyebrows, on the other hand, are a sign of suppressed rage.
Hmm. I wonder where plastic surgery comes in? If you change your nose or your cheekbones, does that mean you come out a new woman—inside and out?
If you're interested in finding out more about face reading or you want an individual consultation with Jean Haner visit Wisdom of Your Face. You can e-mail her a picture and she'll analyze your face to tell you if you're on your life's true path. I'm not sure of the cost—it could be expensive. But if you do consult her, let me know, I'd love to hear about it.
What do you think? Is "face reading" a lot of hooey? Or do you think you can judge someone's personality by their facial characteristics?
