Face Shapes


Correlating face shape to personality is not new!  Not only were the Chinese and Greeks doing it, but Caygill incorporated it into her color system (1980), and her students followed.

SPRING, TYPE 1, SANGUINE, ENTHUSIAST, AIR




SPRING Caygill (1980): "The face is generally rounded - rounded cheeks, eyes, nose, and chin - or it may be heart shaped with pointed chin. Usually there are ...indentations under high cheekbones, and often dimples. The face may express animation even in sleep." "Contours of the body are also molded and rounded... Those who are slender are not angular."



Rounded or square features need buoyant effects. (Spring)
Rounded: full, plump (Spring)

"the choleric and sanguine types have convex facial profiles, but the melancholic and phlegmatic have concave profiles.http://face-and-emotion.com/dataface/physiognomy/practice.jsp


convex profile (generally looks younger)

Convex: The person with the convex profile types have a sloping forehead, slightly prominent brows and a large nose that is slightly curved. They also have a receding chin shape. These people come under the category of hard-headed people who have a demanding nature and an impatient streak.


The marks of the convex are the forehead prominent at the brows, sloping back as it rises. Eyes full and prominent. Nose long, high in the bridge, and curving outward from root to tip. Mouth prominent, lips pushed outward, the chin receding, or sloping backward toward the throat. Convex traits: Quickness of thought and action, practical, keen observer, interested in facts, ready in speech. Energy is the keynote, impatient, impulsive, short endurance. This is the keen, quick, practical, impulsive person, the worker.



Caygill Spring: “The face is generally rounded–rounded cheeks, eye, nose, chin—or it may be heart shaped with pointed chin...dimples.” 



Tuttle (2010) Type 1: “Face shape: circular or heart shaped.” “Cheeks: circles...dimples” “Nose: circle shape.”  






Segerstrom (1980) Type 1:  
"Type Ones look smooth and rounded.  Appearing younger than their years, T-1s' faces, cheeks, eyes and figures are predominately curved.  With short or upturned noses, rosebud lips and curly hair, they move freely, quickly and impulsively.  Their speech is soft and rapid...

One immediate tipoff to this harmony is the grin which lights the face.  T-1s seem to be bursting with health and good spirits."

SUMMER, TYPE 2, PHLEGMATIC, COMPASSIONATE, WATER

SUMMER Caygill (1980): "Usually the fingers are tapered, long and slender. The movements of the hand are graceful with no awkwardness."


Molded or chiseled features need soft, relaxed effects. (Summer and Winter)
Molded: classic features, oval, not highly defined (Summer or Winter)
Chiseled: etched sharply, features highly defined (Summer or Winter)

"the choleric and sanguine types have convex facial profiles, but the melancholic and phlegmatic have concave profiles.http://face-and-emotion.com/dataface/physiognomy/practice.jsp


concave profile

Concave: The people with concave profile type have a prominent forehead, almost flat eyebrows, smaller and straight or slightly inward curved or bent nose. They have a flat mouth and well-formed chin that has an outward curve. These people are thought to be good-natured and patient lot. They tend to judge over things intentionally. 

The concave marks are, the forehead prominent above and flat at the brows. Chin prominent at the point, sloping inward towards the lips. The eyes are deep-set, hose short, low in the bridge, curving inward from root to tip. The mouth recedes. Concave traits: Slowness of action and thought and speech, great endurance. Interested in theories, meditative, absent minded, philosophizes about everything, mild, moderate energy, patient, determined, impractical, staunch, dependable. They are the calm, deliberate, good natured, theoretical types, the thinkers.



Segerstrom (1980) Type 2:

"Type Twos have a gentle ageless appearance.  Although rarely pretty as children, they mature into delicate beauty.  Bodies are more elongated than T-1s, foreheads more generous, chins straighter or receding and features more refined.  Hands and feet of Type Twos are long and aristrocratic with gently tapering fingers and toes - gracefully designed for aristocratic endeavors and expensive shoes.  Type Two's quiet coloring matches soft voices and non flashy personalities."



AUTUMN, TYPE 3, DYNAMIC, CHOLERIC, EARTH



 AUTUMN Caygill (1980): "Autumn women are energetic, sure in their movements, solid and firm of step, or quick and wiry. Others may be loose-jointed, angular and graceful."
"The features are fairly strong and definite. The head is usually large in proportion to the body, and the chin is firm. The usually strong face will preclude any attempt on the part of the Autumn woman to appear "pretty." If she is pretty, this quality should not be emphasized, since it will not dramatize her personality. She should strive rather for an appearance of smartness and chic."


Oblique or aquiline features need swift effects. (Autumn, Winter, and Elfin type)
Oblique: angular, eyes and brows diagonally drawn
Squared: blunt, lacking angles, frequently concave profile
Aqualine: narrow face, convex profile, arched nose, protruding forehead

"the choleric and sanguine types have convex facial profiles, but the melancholic and phlegmatic have concave profiles.http://face-and-emotion.com/dataface/physiognomy/practice.jsp


convex profile 

Convex: The person with the convex profile types have a sloping forehead, slightly prominent brows and a large nose that is slightly curved. They also have a receding chin shape. These people come under the category of hard-headed people who have a demanding nature and an impatient streak.


The marks of the convex are the forehead prominent at the brows, sloping back as it rises. Eyes full and prominent. Nose long, high in the bridge, and curving outward from root to tip. Mouth prominent, lips pushed outward, the chin receding, or sloping backward toward the throat. Convex traits: Quickness of thought and action, practical, keen observer, interested in facts, ready in speech. Energy is the keynote, impatient, impulsive, short endurance. This is the keen, quick, practical, impulsive person, the worker.



Segerstrom (1980) Type 3:

"Type Threes are more earthy, exotic or dangerous than the other types.  Features have more angularity and sharpness... They have courser hair than T-2s and rough textured skin... Eyes may be set obliquely or deeply...Brows may be bushy or angular... Large, aquiline, convex-curved, or flared nostriled noses may grace these interesting faces.  Cheekbones are often high above flat cheeks. Jaws may be sharp or jutting."


WINTER, TYPE 4, MELANCHOLIC, ANALYTICAL, EARTH

 

WINTER Caygill (1980): "...having high cheekbones, narrow faces, convex profiles. Their features are even, and often chiseled in appearance."   wait? convex or concave?

Caygill Winter: "high cheek bones" "motivated toward perfection" "fir" 


Tuttle (2010) Type 4: "high cheek bones" "tendency towards perfection" "Noble Fir"  





Segerstrom (1980)Type 4:
"Type 4s are beautiful.  Their perfection of feature plus, contrasting darkness/lightness immediately draws attention... Both whites of eyes and teeth are whiter than those of other groups.  T-4s' smooth skin is white as porcelain... Faces are elongated ovals with well proportioned features which contribute to a flowing, finely-sculptured look.  Hands and feet are slim and graceful."
