Understanding Faces 

 A Very Old Skill with Many Versions

    

Aristotle had one of the first known system for understanding faces. Since then the skills have been rediscovered many times during the past 4000 years.

 

 

From a Judge's Courtroom -- A Modern Version

It was created by Judge Edward Vincent Jones. After watching thousands people in his courtroom for many years, he found he could reliably predict their personality, behavior and innate abilities from their facial features. These were not expressions and gestures but basic hereditary structures and shapes. He was so fascinated by this knowledge that he maintained detailed records. From this mass of knowledge he realized he had documented a new science.

 

 

Proving the System

Jones shared his discovery and his records with Robert Whiteside, a newspaper editor. Whiteside was impressed with the accuracy, and immediately saw the value of Jones's work for real human situations. Whiteside set up detailed tests with a group of a 1050 adults -- enough to get an accurate statistical validation.  The result -- 92% accuracy.

 

 

 

Facial Features Can't Cheat

  The accuracy is astonishing. In written tests for personality, and career aptitude, e.g. Meyers Briggs, there is a tendency to bias answers toward the result you're hoping for. But with facial features there are no questions asked, and no handwriting sample required. You couldn't cheat if you tried. This is why the information is so valuable, and accurate for career selection, sales, management, customer relations, counseling, coaching, team building, marriage,  relationships, family problems, etc.
