What are the social and psychological consequences of reading character in faces? Sociologist Leslie A. Zebrowitz unmasks the face and explores in a systematic, scientific manner our tendency to judge people by their appearance. 75 photos & drawings.

Leslie Ann Zebrowitz, American Psychology educator. Fellow American Psychological Association, American Psychological Society (charter), Society for Experimental Social Pychology, Eastern Psychological Association Beta Kappa.

Do we read character in faces? What information do faces actually provide? Why do we associate certain facial qualities with particular character traits? What are the social and psychological consequences of reading character in faces? Zebrowitz unmasks the face and provides the first systematic, scientific account of our tendency to judge people by their appearance. Offering an in-depth analysis of two appearance qualities that influence our impressions of others—“babyfaceness” and “attractiveness”—and an account of these impressions, Zebrowitz has written an accessible and valuable book for professionals and general readers alike.The assumption that people's faces provide a window to their inner nature has a long and distinguished history, eloquently expressed in the works of ancient philosophers, like Aristotle, and great writers, like Shakespeare. Zebrowitz examines this assumption, focusing on four central points. She shows that facial appearance, particularly babyfaceness and attractiveness, has a strong impact on how we perceive an individual's character traits and on social outcomes in the workplace, in the criminal justice system, and in other settings. She proposes that facial stereotypes derive from evolutionarily adaptive reactions to useful information that faces can provide. She assesses the accuracy of facial stereotypes in light of plausible links between appearance and character. Finally, Zebrowitz suggests ways to counteract the consequences of reading faces.

This book has had such an impact on me. I have been judged by people my whole life based on the fact that I never had a "baby-face." I have recommended this book to everyone I know!!!!

This is one of the first and remains one of the best books on facial perception. Although very important for an academic audience, it's an immensely readable book. The author, an academic and Brandeis University, is known as a pioneer in the field of facial perception. Dr. Zebrowitz offers many practical examples and insights into how we see other people and judge them by their faces. Surprisingly, some of our judgments are accurate, such as judging a person's intelligence by their faces, while other, such as telling if a person is honest, are not accurate. Zebrowitz delves into the social pitfalls of judging a person's personality by their faces such as in the judicial system and in the medical community. She notes that attractive people get better treatment by law enforcement, judges, police, and teachers. This book made me think of my face defines my own personality.
I would highly recommend this work to anyone interested in people and personality.

This book title is a little misleading and it will initially disappoint those who are looking for a book on how to read faces. However, it should be the first book that anyone interested in the subject should read.

In Reading Faces, the author spends a great deal of pages (and well researched material) to dispel the myth that there is a direct and systematic link between our facial appearance and psychological traits. But, unlike what another reviewer said, Leslie Zebrowitz does not say that there is absolutely no link between them. Through her model of appearance-traits relations in chapter 3 and 8 she explains how biology and environment can influence directly or indirectly that relation and how an individual may react to it (surfing along ones appearance => self-fulfilling prophecy; fighting it => self-defeating prophecy...).

The point is that there is no simple (simplistic, rather I should say) or systematic (if you wide a wide chin, broad jaw then it automatically means that you are strong willed, authoritarian...) appearance-traits link as some books or people pretend there is. As a matter of fact, I have yet to find a book/article/speaker on face reading that backup their system or claims with scientifically validated studies (as opposed to Leslie Zerbrowitz who thoroughly references every point she makes).

Does that mean that the other books on face reading are a waste of time or trees? No, rather they should be used with a different optic. These books could help us understand better what our face tells other and how instrumental it is in forming a first impression. According to researcher Albert Meharabian ("Non Verbal communication", Chicago, Adline-Athernon, 1972) when we first meet someone, the words we say only represent 7% of our total messages. For the rest, 38% of what is perceived is through our voice (tone, speed, intonation...) and the remaining 55% through our appearance and body language. So, do read these other books on face reading, but not before having read Leslie Zerbrowitz one (herself a baby face in a self-defeating prophecy mode from what we can read between the lines). Also, keep in mine that facial clues are significant signals that will be perceived consciously and subconsciously by other and although they do play an important role in one's life they do not represent simplistic/systematic personality traits indicators.

I don't give this book 5 star rating because of the form. The content could have been a little better organized and reader friendly. Still it remains highly readable.

This was one of the books that changed the way I see people around me.
In a strictly scientific analysis, Zebrowitz explores the tendency to judge people by the way they look. Why? Can we trust it?
Almost all book is devoted to this first question - why we do it? And explains why we find some faces more atractive than others, the sex-appealing face cues, the main parts of the face that we look at and if they have some link to the way people are (their behaviour and personality).
The final chapter concludes that there is no scientific evidence that we can link the facial cues to one's personality. However the interesting thing of the book is the scientific facts and studies that you get to know before you come to the conclusion.
A massive study on all aspects of face attraction and perception.

Stupid facts. She has no idea how to write a book. Through out the book She tells baby faced personalities have baby characteristics, mature faced have mature chars. Attractive people attracts, Unattractive people doesn't. This book has nothing to with psychology. Its like my high school teacher with low grade brain reciting a text book.

Very poorly and inconsitently written book. It seems that the author just couldn't make up her mind on whether she wants it to write it as an academic paper, a "how to" book you might see on a shelf at Kinko's, or a coffee-table book.

It does offer some very insightful ideas, but they are so broken up in chapters that don't flow with each other, that can't keep up the interest of the reader.

Also, I would have changed the title to "observations on the effects of facial configurations in the everyday society"
