Here Paulos introduces the idea that face shape can be yin or yang, and facial features can also be yin or yang.
by Bernice Kentner
It actually has quite a bit of Chinese Face Reading in it, combined with Seasons and facial features.

Here I am incorporating the original Greek association with the temperaments and the various sources of Typing Systems regarding facial shape. The point is that typing cannot be made on face shape alone:
Oblong: Oblong types are considered to be very practical, methodical and with a tendency to overwork. You are most likely to have a muscular or athletic physique, which some equate to narcissism and may lead to problems in relationships.
Square: A square face is linked to fire and you may appear as aggressive, ambitious or domineering. You have a sharp, analytical mind and are decisive.
Triangular: These face shapes are traditionally associated with a thin body and an intellectual persuasion. Chinese face readers associate this face with creativity and sensitivity, as well as a fiery temperament.
"There are 4 basic face shapes, each with its own distinct characteristics. Very few people fall into "pure" type categories, but more often than not, the predominant shape will be recognizable."
Square=Fire/Physical (seen as Earth in eastern)
Triangular=Air/Mental (seen as Fire in eastern)
- the mental or inverted triangular shaped face is ruled by Mercury, (Mental Air Type - often an ectomorph)
- the circular or vital type by the Moon or Jupiter, (Emotional Water Type - often short and stocky also)
- the oblong or osseous (boney) type by Saturn (Earth Types)
- and the muscular or square type by Mars (Physical and Muscular Fire Types - often Mesomorphs).
FACE FENG SHUI
The Square Face belongs to the element of Earth or the planet Mars.
The Pyramid Face of the Fire or Sun type is broad at the base and narrow at the forehead
The Pakua Face is what I call the Earth or Saturn Face.
The Top Face or Mercury or Air Face is the opposite of the Pyramid face and indicates a person who is more cerebral than physical. Like the top, Mercury or Air, this person is easily stressed, highly strung and sensitive.
The Rectangular Face or Jupiter Face which belongs to the Wood Element.
