  • If your husband has thick eyebrows, he'll need to have a very active lifestyle - so he probably really does have to play basketball twice a week, just in order to de-stress.
  • If you have prominent cheeks, you'll be a natural manager, easily able to tell others what to do. But this can translate into your sharing your opinion with friends a bit too easily and being perceived as 'bossy'!
  • If you're involved in on-line dating, what five things should you look for in a potential date's face - that you can see even in a small photo on the internet.


  • If your teenager has a hairline like Brad Pitt's, be prepared for him to be quite a rulebreaker!
  • If your child has strong cheekbones, she'll need very specific bedtime rituals that should not be ignored.
  • If your child has a high, rounded forehead, she is highly creative and you shouldn't worry if she has an imaginary friend.

Interviewing for a Job

  • If your interviewer has a strong jaw, he'll tend to make snap judgments, so be sure to establish your credibility early in your meeting.
  • If your interviewer has a full mouth, emphasize that business is all about relationships, and that you consider your co-workers family.
  • If your interviewer has straight eyebrows, talk about how logic and common sense are essential in any business decisions.

Everyday Life

  • I can teach you how to get out of the grocery store ten minutes faster - by reading the faces of the checkout clerks to see who'll be fast and efficient.
  • What do wrinkles mean? Not all wrinkles are bad, and some you definitely want to develop.
