Features of a full-face and physiognomic traits of personality.
Human facial shapes in a context of physiognomy can be considered in two
perspectives, namely in lateral half-face or profile projections and frontal
Human facial features in full-face mean potential tendencies of personality and propensity of character, and features in half-face allow to estimate kinetic psychological properties according to which people are capable to carry out tendencies of personalities and propensities of characters. Therefore it is necessary to analyze physiognomy in half and full face to have complete notion about character of a person. Namely it is necessary to consider parameters of human faces in frontal perspectives and to correlate to facial parameters in lateral perspectives, to estimate kinetic and potential psychological characteristics of people.
For ordering of formal parameters or otherwise to tell types of human faces in frontal perspectives in a context of physiognomy it is possible to use eight trigrams Ba Gua of the canon of changes i-jing, that is shown on the chart.
For eight trigrams Ba Gua of the canon i-jing on the chart there correspond
eight conditional outlines of a human face.
For top lines in trigrams of Ba Gua there correspond facial outlines in physiognomic sphere of consciousness.
For middle lines there correspond outlines in physiognomic sphere of individuality.
For bottom lines there correspond formal parameters in facial sphere of feelings.
If top part of a face is wide then person possesses psychological traits which correspond to sphere of consciousness, and also if middle or bottom parts of a face are wide then person possesses psychological traits of corresponding physiognomic spheres of individuality and feelings. But if formal parameters of facial parts are narrow then corresponding psychological traits are not expressed.
The information on meanings of facial spheres in a context of physiognomy look on pages of this website in other sections, and in particular look section with the name half faces (concepts 1), or look gallery with types of human faces in profile.
Psychological traits in view of physiognomy in full-face are potential, that is correspond to deposits and propensities, or otherwise to tell to tendencies which are peculiar to character of the person, but which can be realized and actualized if also this person possesses corresponding kinetic psychological traits, that it is possible to see in lateral facial perspectives in profile. Therefore it is necessary to compare facial outlines in half and full face, as shown in the table.
|Verticals of the shown table correspond to eight
frontal facial perspectives, and horizontals correspond to eight lateral
perspectives of a face in profile. And also verticals and horizontals
correspond to trigrams Ba Gua which form hexagrams of the canon i-jing
in cells of the table.
Positions of hexagrams i-jing in the table correspond to the magic square about which look the information on pages of this website in section with the name game. Therefore sequences of eight trigrams Ba Gua of the Chinese canon i-jing on verticals and horizontals in the table are different.
Facial features in half and full face correspond with lines in trigrams of Ba Gua identically. Namely entire lines correspond to the expressed lineaments, and broken lines correspond to not expressed lineaments.
Top lines and sphere of consciousness is a set of forehead and eyebrows in profile, or top facial part in full-face.
Middle lines and sphere of individuality is a set of nose bridge and tip in profile, or middle facial part in full-face.
Bottom lines and sphere of feelings is a set of lips and chin in lateral perspectives, or bottom facial part in frontal perspectives.
By means of the shown table it is necessary to find physiognomic outlines
which correspond to facial shapes in half and full face, and also it is possible
to find corresponding hexagram of the canon i-jing, and after that it is
possible to compare potential and kinetic psychological traits of a person in a
context of physiognomy. Namely on facial features in full-face it is possible to
estimate potential tendency and propensities of character, and on profile
features it is possible to estimate kinetic abilities according to which a
person is capable to carry out available potential tendencies or otherwise to
tell potentialities of personality.
If any facial features are expressed in half and full face then potential tendencies can be realized by kinetic realization of potentialities, or otherwise tell by kinetic acts of a person.
If physiognomic features are not expressed in profile and expressed in full-face then potential tendencies and possibilities of personality cannot be realized by kinetic acts of a person.
If physiognomic outlines are expressed in profile and not expressed in full-face then absence of potential possibilities does not allow to realize kinetic acts of a person.
If facial outlines are not expressed in half and full face then potential possibilities are absent, also person does not aspire to realization of kinetic acts.
For example, if facial
features correspond to 61st hexagram of the canon i-jing, that corresponds to
5th Ba Gua in full-face and 2nd Ba Gua in half-face.
In sphere of consciousness the expressed potential tendencies of thinking cannot be realized by not expressed kinetic aspirations to actualization of ideas.
In sphere of individuality the expressed personal potentialities or otherwise tell individual potencies of a person can to be realized by the expressed kinetic aspiration to personification.
In sphere of feelings the not expressed potencies of sensuality do not allow to carry out the expressed kinetic displays of sensual aspirations.
Or if facial outlines
correspond to 62nd hexagram of the canon i-jing, that is correspond with 4th Ba
Gua in full-face and 7th Ba Gua in half-face.
In sphere of consciousness the not expressed potentialities of thinking do not allow to actualize the expressed kinetic processes of mental displays or otherwise to tell cogitative actions.
In sphere of individuality the not expressed personal potentialities do not contradict absence of kinetic personification.
In sphere of feelings the expressed potencies of sensual displays cannot be realized by not expressed kinetic attributes of sensuality.
The following page shows facial perspectives in half and full face in a context of physiognomy as axes of coordinates or datum lines of human personality.
