There are chances that this may come to you as a surprise. According to a face reading expert Jean Haner and the author of The Wisdom of Your Face, most people do not have distinct face shapes. Arguably, some people could have a mixture of square or round or oval whereas some do have a shape that you can clearly recognize.
It may sound as a bluff or as if I am trying to generate some reaction to fill my comments section with reviews, but apparently, there is science behind it. In her book, Haner states that she derived her various face reading techniques based on a 3,000 years old study on Chinese medicine. Not only does the shape of your face reveal your character, but also interestingly, your overall approach to life can be depicted. Your face is a map of your personality and as well as your whole life.
