What is face reading I am often asked? It is essentially the art of divining something about a person’s character or health simple by looking at his or her face. We all face read and have since we were babies. We find stored in your mind a library of faces and characters all matched up. Initially this was an essential tool to help protect us from potential predators but later we might have naturally developed it into a powerful tool to help in all kinds of social interactions.
Much of this happens subconsciously. We could be introduced to someone at a party and our mind might notice his mouth is similar to another man we know. Without realizing it we will instinctively make initial assumptions about this person based upon our previous experiences with the man with a similar mouth.

The reason we choose to read faces is that they are the most exposed part of our bodies and the most revealing. Not only does the face have five distinct features; its shape, eyebrows, eyes, nose and mouth but two of these; the eyes and mouth are highly mobile giving out a huge amount of interesting information about the person inside.
In face we are so obsessed with faces that we see them everywhere, in the clouds, across faded walls, within a pile of crumpled clothes, among autumn leaves… Because we are social creatures and our survival depended to much on living with other people our minds are programmed seek out and recognise faces. This is so strong that if we look at a rotating hollow mask, our mind with automatically fill in the hollow side to look like a face.
