What is Face Reading?
Face reading is mankind’s oldest and original language. It pre-dates the spoken word by perhaps millions of years. Everyone on earth, including our pre-historic ancestors, has or had an innate ability to face read, but most have lost the instinctual trust in the process. Still, who among us has not thought, “something isn’t right about this person”, and didn’t quite know why? Or, “I like her – she has a kind face.” These feelings, or “gut” instincts, are remnants of an earlier time, when, as cavemen without spoken language, getting an instant read on someone could literally be a matter of life or death.
The human face is capable of making ten thousand different expressions and micro-expressions, with every one having meaning. However, modern-day social and technological ‘advances’ have caused the recognition of all but a handful of simple and obvious expressions to be lost.
There is a scientific basis for why face reading works worldwide. It is estimated that human brains are as little as .01% different structurally, and that certain areas of the brain affect corresponding areas of the face. As a result, the same muscles are triggered when feeling various emotions, which is why a smile looks like a smile anywhere on the planet. It is also why certain life experiences, such as disappointment, grief, dominance, etc. all show up in the same places on the face, no matter the age, race, ethnicity, social status, or other prejudicial category of the owner.
