What can you reveal from the shape of one's nose? According to facial reading, pretty much everything!
Every feature of your face is unique, and it represents a piece of you that goes beyond your appearance.
For example, your face can tell plenty about your health, sleeping habits, age. And similar can be said about your features. This is where things get more interesting, as we are going to explore the world of facial reading and 18 things your nose shape says about you.
What Is Facial Reading
In Chinese culture, face reading is a way of telling your fortune.
That's why many elderly people from this area of the world beg youngers not to change their facial features, as they might change their destiny.
Facial reading is 3000 years old, and it is believed that your face can tell a story about the rest of your life. For example, the forehead speaks about your 20s, the eyes speak about your 30, while your nose speaks about your 40s.
Your mouth will reveal your 50s, your chin reveals your fortune in the 60s, and you gradually go down to your neck to show your 70s.
The nose area is particularly attractive since it reflects your wealth. As many believe that people are wealthiest between the ages of 41 and 50, this ancient philosophy fits Western beliefs.
Today, facial reading or physiognomy falls into a similar category as reading facial expressions or body language.
There are numerous, often controversial, researches proving that your facial features can tell more than expected.
Now that we covered the basics, it is time to dedicate all our attention to the nose, or to be more precise, 18 things your nose shape says about you.
Your Nose Speaks To Your 40s
As Jean Haner, an expert in face reading and author of The Wisdom of Your Face, explained:
"The top area between your eyes speaks to the year you turn 40, the top third refers to your early 40s, the middle correlates to your mid-40s, and the bottom half reflects your later 40s."
Despite the controversies, Haner is certain that the shape of your nose is not as controversial as some thought:
"No matter what your race or ethnicity, shapes of noses all carry the same messages across the board."
There is no possible way to understand each person's individual nose, but basically, all shapes can be filed into 18 categories.
#1 If You Have The Crooked Nose
Those with crooked noses have the bridge of the nose standing out while the tip is rounded.
Despite what one might think once they see your nose, it actually suggests that you are a simple and straightforward person.
A crooked nose appears broken, but it has a certain charm and adds to the character.
People with crooked noses are good listeners, which makes them great friends and romantic partners.
#2 If You Have A Concave Nose
People with this nose shape have a slight arch on the nose bone, and it looks petite and sharp, with the tip looking somewhat outwards.
As researches showed, if you have a concave nose, you are most likely an Altruist by nature.
You do feel everything, but you do not like to show your emotions. Instead, you prefer to walk with your head high and a dignified smile.
#3 If You Have The Straight Nose
One of the most popular nose shapes is a straight nose. Your nostrils are on the broader side with a round tip, while the nose is straight and flat.
People with straight noses are considered to be patient and protective over their loved ones.
They simply enjoy peace, and provocations are not their cup of tea.
#4 If You Have The Button Nose
The button nose is cute, short, and dainty. It is also one of the most common nose shapes.
If you have a button nose or celestial nose, it is no wonder you are strong-willed, stubborn, and you know what you want and how to get it.
You enjoy planning, and while one might say there are many other factors, one of them has to be your nose shape.
#5 If You Have The Arched Nose
If your nose is curved from the nasal bone like the hooknose, and it is pointed at the tip, your shape is the arched nose.
People with arched noses are loyal and great at organizing things.
Your nose is interesting, and so are your exceptional people skills.
#6 If You Have The Hook Nose
Your nose drives attention. Bent downwards from the base of the nose bone to the tip, this nose shape stands out and brings a lot of character to your face.
On the one hand, you are opinionated and even arrogant. On the other, you are thoughtful and passionate.
Your dual nature is quite fascinating, just like your outstanding face feature.
#7 If You Have The Greek Nose
Narrow, straight, and pointed, the Greek nose got its name thanks to ancient Greek sculptors.
You are secretive, loyal, not much of a talker. However, the best thing about your personality is that you are practical.
Instead of a talker, you are a doer.
#8 If You Have The Nubian Nose
If your nose bridge is straight, while the lower end of the nose points downwards, you have a Nubian-shaped nose.
This implies that you always up for new experiences, learning and great at expressing your thought.
You might not always be the life of the party because you are consciously optimistic by nature.
#9 If You Have A Bony Nose
People with bony, large noses are perfectionists. Since the nose is a central feature of the face, your large nose implies that you will hit your prime in your mid-40s and 50.
You get attached to other people's energy, which can be pretty exhausting. That is why some see you as a loner. In reality, you just want some peace and quiet to work towards your goals.
#10 If You Have A Petite Nose
A soft, petite nose implies that you are a bit on the hedonistic side.
Your beautifully shaped nose is perfectly balanced, and that is what you strive for in life.
You are family-oriented, and you crave the ideal work-life balance.
#11 If Your Nose Is Scooped With A Turned-up Tip
Those blessed with a scooped nose with a turned-up tip are family-oriented as well, but they are also quite nostalgic and generous.
You might appear melancholic, but that is simply because you enjoy people, and your empathy has no boundaries.
#12 If Your Nose Hooks Down At The End
The ones with the most energy are people who have noses with hooks down at the end.
You will learn that you need to slow down eventually, but until then, you are busy taking over the world.
While we know that you could have it all, it is not wrong to stop and smell the roses from time to time. Relax, and get more into self-care. The world will wait for you.
#13 If You Have A Cleft Nose
Your cleft nose with an almost heart-shaped tip perfectly represents your loving nature.
You can be vulnerable, trustworthy, as you pretty much wear your heart on the sleeve.
Those with cleft noses are amazing to have around you. But, don't abuse their gentle nature, because they will pick up the pieces of themselves and forget all about you when the time is right.
#14 If You Have A Diamond-shaped Nose
Shine bright like a diamond! If you have a diamond-shaped nose, your personality is attractive, even provocative.
Life is a party, and some might see you as immature. But, as you grow, you will become more in tune with other people's expectations and find joy inside a family and a small circle of friends.
You want to know it all, and once you realize that it not possible, you will become much more satisfied with yourself. Your nose implies that life is a road to self-discovery.
#15 If You Have An Extremely Pointed Tip
A pointed tip suggests that you are curious, almost always fascinated by life.
Though you don't know how to keep secrets and enjoy gossiping, you are most likely simply passionate and do not like secrets.
Your excitement is contagious, which makes you popular and beloved despite your gossip-loving nature.
