Face analysis offers much information about the nature and character of a person. A professional can analyze some of the characteristics such as intelligence, reliability and honesty.

Samudrika Shastra deals with the various marks on the body which are said to indicate the type of person, his character, life and experiences. Samudrika Shastra is a Sanskrit term that roughly translates as “knowledge of body features.” This tradition assumes that every natural or acquired bodily mark encodes its owner’s psychology and destiny. Elevation, depression, elongation, diminution, and other marks become relevant.

Mind is the subtle body and body is gross mind. As are the thoughts, so is the body. So a continuous pattern of thinking will bring changes in the body accordingly.

The most unforgettable and unique feature of a human is his/her face. Each face reflects in its structures and lines its owner’s personal history, mental attitudes, intimacy needs, ethics, emotional style, and verbal communication. Face analysis is an age-old technique of interpreting the outward appearance of an individual to reveal his character and temperament. It has been mentioned extensively in the literatures of medieval times and also in classical works of Homer and Hippocrates. Physiognomy or face reading is a branch of ancient practical philosophy. The Greek philosopher, Aristotle, used to examine the personality of a person by reading different features of the face as well as the skin color, body, hair, voice, gait and limbs. Face reading was practiced by Latin philosophers such as Pliny the Elder, Suetonius and Juvenal.

The inquisitive human mind has always been fascinated to know more about the minds of his fellow men. The ancient Chinese art of face reading believed in the ideology that the human face was a reflection of the inner spirit and the people of Medieval Europe thought the face was synonymous with virtue. There are over 100 points on the face that you can analyze to find more about a person.

Face analysis is subjective in nature. Its subjective nature makes it an art. Your face shape can give you a broad idea of your personality. Your features might serve as a rough sketch of your persona. Though your face is not a direct derivative of who you are, it is definitely an interface to the self within you!
