Face Reading is the belief, often criticized as a discriminatory practice, that personality characteristics may be determined by studying facial features.
In the U.S. several corporations employ “face readers” for productivity seminars and to assist in the hiring process. and more recently, online dating companies claim that facial characteristics can give you a perfect match.
Funnily enough, U.S. law forbids discrimination on the basis of age, race, sex, religion and color but not on the appearance of the face.
Historically, Confucius believed in his own version of face reading. And a quick web search brings up sites promoting Chinese Face Reading.
