Question: "I'm shy, what features show (s)he will be a loyal friend?"

     Because Face Reading is a spiritual/psychological system of understanding a person's character from his/her facial features, it can help us to understand others on a very deep level. Barbara Roberts has appeared on over 50+ national/local TV Shows reading live studio audiences. Her book looks at friendship and romance and gives specific clues to how to choose friends or a life partner who matches your inner life goals and your personality. (Face Reading - How to Know Anyone at a Glance is on - PDF/IPAD/paperback)
     Every facial feature has a corresponding psychological meaning(s) and the face has at least 10 features which must be understood together to reveal a person's true inner nature. This system is universal for people of all ethnic backgrounds, ages and genders.
     Tyra Banks said of Barbara: "I thank you for coming on my Shows and want to applaud your honoring ethnic diversity in all ways in your work."
     There are several facial features that specific for kindness, warmth and sympathy. These include a rounded forehead line (someone who loves people and is a friend-magnet), full cheeks (feeling-sympathetic person), full lips (generous and affectionate), a wide mouth (loving).
     In friendship we also seek to be heard, listened to, and features that are outstanding for that are: Large ears (someone who tunes into the big picture), long earlobes (spiritual, truth seeker), and a rounded ball on the tip of the nose (indicates a person who people talk to.) Also, it's nice if your new friend has a narrow upper lip and a full lower lip, which means someone who does not repeat or gossip about what you are telling them.
     The eyes play a key role in our friend having the same 'vision' as we do - The optimum is a clear gaze, one which is full of compassion and bright eyes. Of course, when we are ill the eyes are dull so it's nice to see a person over time to determine if (s)he will be compatible for you as a friend.
     Some psychological tendencies related to eye colors - Topics the person may be interested in (as Patterns in personality): Green eyed people are curious and love to learn. Often folks with hazel eyes are easily bored, like a lot of variety and enjoy topics of healing and insight. Blue/grey eyed people may be analytical with the emotions and interested in why people do what they do and psychology. When a Caucasian person has brown hair and brown eyes it is an indicator of 'family first' and warmth and friendliness if you become part of their extended 'family.'
     Some other features which are sweet are a rounded chin and jaw area, which means love and children and animals. Someone who is loving in their life will also be loving with you. In friendship as in romance, it is important to move slowing emotionally - getting to know a person over time in a variety of situations.
     And a very lovely affirmation given by the yogi Yogananda is:
"As I radiate love and good will to others, I open the channel for God's love to flow to me. Divine Love is the magnet that draws to me all good."

70/30% RATIO to Romantic Compatibility - Is (s)he the ONE?

Face Reading is an ancient psychological system of character reading. Abraham 
Lincoln chose his Cabinet using these skills, and Aristotle used Face Reading to hand-select the generals for Alexander the Great, who won dominion over the ancient world. All life involves understanding others. Our personal success and happiness depend on it. Face reading gives us the inner track in relationships. It looks at the core of a person and tells us who he really is. Your face tells the story of your life. Like a tracker in the Old West, everything is there for someone who knows how to look. We look at people, but we don’t really see them. Face Reading will teach you how to see and understand them as you never have before.

With Face Reading the original idea is to list a person’s facial features and then
assign to each one psychological meaning(s) that would be true for that person. Our
emotional and spiritual life is recorded in the body, and especially in the face; so the
facial features express our innate way of thinking and behaving. (Example: rounding
in the cheeks and eye areas expresses more warmth and feeling, and these are the
facial feature meanings for those areas.)

I have taken the concept of facial features and divided them into three categories:
1. Those features we are born with (as in the shape of the ear lobe, eye color, hair
2. Features which reflect how we would like to look (make-up, hair coloring)
3. Those that are the result of accidents, skin cancer, orthodontia and/or plastic surgery
(scarring, facial burns, teeth straightening)
Because face reading focuses on facial features, which are universal for all ethnic
groups, ages, and genders, two people can be romantically compatible even though
they come from different continents or ethnic backgrounds. The key is that their
facial features are similar. For intimate relationships to be lasting and harmonious,
70% of the facial features for a couple must match or be similar. Would this get boring
to have someone whose inner flow is like ours? No. That is where the 30% difference
in the facial features comes in. It adds the spark or chemistry.

The secret to reading a person’s face is to read what you see and then look for
the consistent themes. (Please note that Face Reading is a tool for self-understanding
and introspection and is not a replacement for professional counseling or medical

When I started studying Face Reading in 1985, I read all the books on this topic
and realized that what made this system so difficult to practice accurately was that
in various books the same facial feature had contradictory psychological interpretations.
This was impossible to reconcile, and was at best very frustrating! Using my
clinical medical research background (UCSD), I took the data from 10,000 peoples’
faces (in my 500 classes and private sessions) and the feedback they gave me about
each of their facial features. The psychological meanings under each facial feature illustrated in my book (Face Reading - How to Know Anyone at a Glance on have been validated on a minimum of 50 people who said these
meanings are 90-100% accurate for them. So, this is how feature by feature, I compiled
hundreds of facial features and their psychological meanings.

In romantic compatibility we are comparing two faces. We are looking for 70%
similar and 30% different facial features. What does this mean?
“Matching” or “similar” Facial Features are:
1. Facial Features are exactly the same.
Both people have black hair or visible eyelids or square foreheads.
2. The eye colors are of the same intensity of color.
One has deep brown eyes, and the other has deep hazel eyes. One has light
blue eyes, and other has light green eyes.
3. The majority of the shapes of the features are similar.
Both have feeling predominant in their faces: rounded foreheads, round lower
eye areas, and full cheeks. Both have physical or angular features: huge
jaws, arched eyebrows and high cheek bones. Both have sensitive features:
narrow faces, fine bone structure, and close set eyes.
4. The textures in their features are the same.
Both have thick hair and eyebrows. Both have curly hair.
5. The radiance from the eyes is the same.
Eye radiance is the degree of warmth, compassion, and love that radiates
from a person’s eyes. It is the barometer for soul development.

But can people who are opposites attract and have happy lives together? Absolutely!
The facial features in this short booklet are just a few of the thousands of
features possible. Can your partner have none of these qualities listed for “Harmony,
Money, and Great Communication” and be a wonderful partner and parent? Of
course! It would be impossible to list all the facial features which make people emotionally
and spiritually unique and special.

The 2,000 year old system of Face Reading identifies facial features and to each, it attributes a psychological meaning. In my 25 years of teaching this and private practice, after looking at 6,000 faces in over 400 classes, I've made a close study of these features and what they mean. (Please see my book, Face Reading - How to Know Anyone at a Glance on

The NOSE is the area of the face that tells us about WEALTH - financial, spiritual and abundance of all kinds flowing into our lives. Below are some examples of NOSE types and what they mean.

Do you have the nose shape that shows you will be wildly $$$ wealthy?

The larger the nose, the more abundance may come to you. Example: I had the honor of meeting Mother Theresa of Calcutta in India. She had a beautiful, large nose - for her denoting Spiritual abundance. Bill Cosby also has a huge nose - in his case reflecting financial wealth.

A small nose may indicate someone who is good at saving $$ - especially if the nose is bowed (turns outward).

The nostrils also show something about spending - If from a front view (at eye level) you can see open nostrils, this means $$ comes to you, and $$ goes from you, but then it comes back also! So budgeting is important. Another similar money spending trait is when you can see the gum line above the teeth when someone smiles easily - this means they 'swing' with money - budget and then spend.

If the nose is very high on the face and small, it may mean the person is very frugal. Once a husband and wife came to see me for a private session. The man had this nose structure, and I made the 'frugal' comment to the wife. Believe it or not, she said, "Every night he takes the gas out of the car tank and measures it." ??

A nose that has a 45 degree angle from the bottom going towards the forehead (Tanya Harding, the one who hit Nancy Kerrigan in the skating championship) may mean the person is immature emotionally.

A nose that turns up only to a 30 degree angle (from the base of the nose going towards the head) reflects someone who loves to be of service to other people. Very nice quality.

A 'roman nose' (90 degree angle from the base) is often a person who likes to $$ bargain and get special deals.

Keep in mind that to read a person correctly, you must evaluate ALL his/her features and not just one.

The key to understanding face reading as a tool for personal growth is to understand who we are at a certain time period - and then change ourselves for the POSITIVE using affirmation, meditation, 12-step work, spiritual communion, professional counseling or medication. Whatever our heart tells us will move us forward into the positve action that will attract to us Divine abundance and financial security for ourselves and our families. We can change our destiny at any time. Face Reading is just one introspective indicator.
