Your Facial Features Have a Big Influence on How People See You

They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover because appearances may be deceiving, and our first impressions of others aren't always correct. However, the truth is that we are all judged based on our appearance. Today, we'll discuss how your face features can affect how people see you.

The face, according to science, is the actual representation of our emotions.

Our brain recognizes facial expressions at breakneck speed and makes an unconscious decision about whether or not we like the person. As a result, since first impressions are everything, we must be certain that the initial stimulation is coming from the observed face.

According to recent research on the importance of facial characteristics for success, the more powerful you appear, the more likely you are to be hired as a senior executive.

On the other hand, it appears that the secret of people who appear approachable and trustworthy is their smile; attractive and youthful appearance is mostly determined by the size of the eyes; and dominance is correlated with the masculinity of the face shape. In addition, the angle of the face and the color of the skin are important factors.

It is said that there are traits on your face that help you look trustworthy; lending money to someone who appears more trustworthy has a higher likelihood of being successful.

But how can we know what constitutes a trustworthy, competent, or domineering appearance? One theory is that we are just reacting to facial expressions, such as a kind smile or a frown.

We react to subtle changes in the face, from the curve of the brows to the bone structure, when making a first impression. The truth is that you judge people on the spot when you meet them.

It has been proven that forming an impression of someone's personality takes only 40 milliseconds. Even young youngsters as early as 3 and 4 years old can tell who is "evil" or "good" just by glancing at their faces.

Your appearance could determine your fate, whether you're attending a party, meeting your future in-laws, or participating in a job interview.

Unlike what happens with most prejudices, we are both the victims and the victimizers: we have all judged someone unfairly based on their appearance, and, in return, we have all been judged at some point too.

And that is the truth that must be faced.
