So Apparently Your Face Shape Reveals Some Of Your Personality Traits

Jean Haner, an expert in face reading and author of The Wisdom of Your Face, says that the shape of your face can say a lot about your personality.

While Haner acknowledges that not everyone has a distinct shape, she maintains that some people have faces that are immediately recognisable, for example, a heart or oval shaped face.


If you have a heart shaped face, Haner says you're likely to be stubborn and strong willed. She also says that those with this face shape have good instincts and intuition.

People with round shapes tend to give a lot but don't always get the same back in return, according to Haner.

Those who have what's referred to as an oval shape are gifted at always knowing the right thing to say, which to be fair, sounds like a very useful personality trait.

If you have a square face, Haner has said that this characterises an energetic person who's adept at taking on big projects.

Finally, a pear or triangle shaped face (and this is new to us) is defined by a forehead that's narrower than the jawline.

Haner's theory, backed up by her studies of face reading taken from the theories of Chinese medicine, says that people with this face shape are determined and driven.
