What Your Face Shape Says About Your Personality

There are a lot of ways to tell what a person might be like without having really getting to know them. What their astrological sign is, for example. Another way, recent experts have revealed, is by the shape of someone’s face. Not only can you tell what kind of character traits a person has based on the physical shape of their face, but you may also be able to tell what their overall approach to life is.
Sounds pretty serious, and almost too simple. But apparently there is science behind it.
Face-reading expert Jean Haner, author of The Wisdom of Your Face, recently told Cosmopolitan, “Your face is saying something. You’re both with features you have for a reason. The face is a map of your personality as well as your whole life.”


So what does your face shape say about you?

It can be a little hard to determine what your shape is. For example, you may think that you have a round face, because, I mean, doesn’t everyone? But there is more to it than that. You may not have one distinct category for your shape, it could be a blend.
Below are some steps for determining what face shape you have. Then take a look through the gallery below to see what your face shape says about your personality.
Step 1: The widest part of your face

  • If your forehead, jaw and cheekbones are pretty much in line, you likely have a square, round or oval face.
  • If your forehead is the widest, then the rest of your face softly angles down to the chin, you have a triangle-shape face.
  • If your cheekbones are the widest area on your face, you have a diamond face shape.
  • If your jaw is the widest part, you likely have a triangle face.

Step 2: The shape of your jaw

  • If your jaw is rounded, you have either a round or oval.
  • If it is strong and defined, you likely have square or diamond.
  • If you have a pointy jaw, you have a heart shape.

Below are the different kind of face shapes, and what character traits they’re associated with.
