Ever wondered how people draw conclusions about you based on the way you look? Well, they’re not entirely wrong about that. According to Jean Haner, face reading expert and author of the book The Wisdom of Your Face, the shape of your face can tell a lot about personality.
While we all do not have a distinct face shape, any prominent feature like the jawline meeting the cheekbone could be a clear indication that you have a square-shaped face.This could map out your personality, telling a lot about you, which you might be unaware of.
So start checking your mirror and find out if your face shape truly reflects your dominant traits.

Personality: If you have an oval-shaped face, then you always know the right things to say. You’re hospitable and tactful, making guests feel welcome in your presence. You do tend to to think about how others perceive you, and in the end, you focus on what they have to say and disregard your own opinions.
Diamond or Triangle Face Shape
The shape: Sometimes referred to as the pear-shaped face. Characterized by being narrower in the forehead and wider in the jawline.

Long Face Shape
