The Physiognomy of the Chin in Face Reading


The diagram above marks out the phases of life represented by the chin, showing that the chin’s appearance can almost signify one’s fortune in the later years. Let’s delve into the aspects of chin in face reading, including the Di Ge, Jin Lu, Gui Lai, and Nu Pu Gong.

The Di Ge is located at the center of the chin, as shown in the diagram, governing the fortune at the age of 71 and also symbolizing the later years and family life; Jin Lu can be seen as an extension of the marionette lines, mainly indicating health in the later years. For related face reading knowledge, please see: Marionette Lines Face Reading Analysis; Gui Lai refers to whether children will be around in one’s later years. If the Gui Lai area is not concave but slightly protruding, it signifies children staying by one’s side; having a concave Nu Pu Gong around the ages of 72 or 73 indicates bad luck during those years. For business people, a concave Nu Pu Gong suggests subordinates not following commands, making it hard to expand the business.

How to Read the Chin in Face Reading

In face reading, chins can vary from wide to narrow. A wide chin that slightly points upwards indicates happiness in the later years. There’s a saying, “An upturned chin, a worry-free dusk,” referring to financial stability, not necessarily health. This doesn’t mean those with non-upturned chins will have bad later years; this statement from ancient physiognomy books requires a comprehensive analysis.

Generally, people with wider chins have better fortunes in their later years, while those with pointed chins tend to have weaker fortunes and should retire before 60, securing enough wealth to ensure a worry-free later life.

It’s important to note that the definition of a wide or narrow chin is not absolute but relative to the facial proportions. For example, a melon seed face usually has a narrower chin. This doesn’t mean their later years will be bad, as the chin is just one of many factors affecting later years in face reading, along with earlobes and eyes. Beyond 70, the most crucial aspect is not facial features but the clarity and vivacity of one’s eyes.

Now, let’s explore different chin shapes and their significance in face reading.

Chin Shapes in Face Reading:

Pointed Chin

A pointed chin signifies little influence from the family, with individuals preferring to be outdoors. Fan Bingbing’s melon seed face is a classic example of a pointed chin, indicating a preference for being outside rather than staying at home.

However, those with pointed chins tend to have less favorable marriage fortunes. Women with pointed chins are advised to marry late due to a lesser focus on family values, making them less adept at managing household affairs unless their partner also has a pointed chin.

Square Chin

Square chins are associated with athletic builds, resilience, and the ability to care for family members. Marrying someone with a square chin means they will manage both their career and household efficiently. Yao Ming is a prime example of someone with a square chin who is responsible in both his career and family life.

Round Chin

Round chins, often seen among wealthy homemakers, are suitable for business ventures, leading to a prosperous and happy marriage. However, health issues may arise due to a propensity for weight gain. Warren Buffett, with a round chin, enjoys a good later life but has had prostate cancer, highlighting the round chin’s slight drawback.

Protruding and Receding Chin

These two extremes, one with a fleshy protrusion and the other receding, show different fortunes. A protruding chin signifies beloved and charismatic middle-aged men; a receding chin indicates poor later years and a rash personality.

Double Chin

A double chin is considered fortunate, not necessarily indicating obesity. Many who undergo double chin cosmetic procedures are actually slim. Preserving a double chin is beneficial for the later years, even if other facial aspects are unfavorable.

Wind-Shaped Chin

The wind-shaped chin can be easily mixed up with the square chin, but it’s actually easy to distinguish. A wind-shaped chin occurs due to excessively protruding jawbones, causing the lower part of the face to be wider while the upper part appears narrower, which significantly differs from the square-shaped chin that forms a “national character” face.

A wind-shaped chin essentially means the jawbones are overly prominent. While prominent jawbones are considered advantageous, especially beneficial for one’s later years, they can also negatively impact one’s character traits. People with excessively prominent jawbones tend to have a strong destructive and secretive nature.

Buttock-Shaped Chin

A buttock-shaped chin, where the chin resembles buttocks with left and right separation, symbolizes the family. The presence of separation signs indicates splitting or divorce, suggesting that individuals with this type of chin are prone to divorces or face obstacles in their relationships. The renowned Oscar-winning actor, Michael Douglas, possesses such a chin shape, and indeed, Douglas has experienced divorce.

People with this chin shape should consider marrying later or owning two homes for periodic residency as possible remedies.
