Although a aptitude and definition of facial

facilities vary, physiognomic comment is

prevalent in Eastern and Western cultures.3

Whilst this might seem superficial, it is a com-

monest proceed of amicable assessment.

Objectively, a idea that facial features

are obliged for a person’s probity is during best

It follows that if physiognomy plays a partial in

In a USA, for example, a splendid white smile

signifies affluence, youth, health, and promotes

In Asian and Chinese societies, a number,

is that Africans courtesy carrying maiden yellow-
