    How important is the nose in your perception of someone else'e face? Big nose, small nose, flat nose, aristocratic nose (whatever that is) - what's your take on noses and nostrils?

    I have a theory that facial features are a good indicator of one's personality. Although I don't have anything more than mental notes cataloged in my head regarding specifics, it would be interesting to see if there have been any scientific studies done on this.

    Thinking of getting anose job are we?

    Personally I barely even look at peoples noses. To me a persons most distguishing facial feature are the eyes.

  6. I thought I was the only one. Could you imagine, though, finding someone w/an exceptionally sizeable one- just the right shape, plus she's nice. Then she asks you what attracted you to her... :rolleyes:

    They did a lot of studies on that subject in the 19th century, but they were all proven wrong...

    yup yup.

    Now that I think about it, I barely notice noses. Unless they are particularly strange looking.....

    Eyes and the shape of the jawline stand out to me -the jaw is probably a woman thing from our early days or something!

    'he have strong jaw, make good babies and good at killing, ug'.

    Possibly.

    er, OK I'm quite bored. :D

    There have been scientific studies, they prove you wrong, there's no link between your looks and your personality.

    :p

    Robert Heinlein once said male nipples' only function was to break up the blankness of the male chest, I suppose same could be said for women's noses and faces.

    Nothing screams out from a face like a snaggle-toothed grin.

    If the teeth are the grille, the the nose must be the hood ornament.

    Weeeeeeeeeell... yes and no. There are no links between innate personality and facial features, but one's appearance does affect his development, demeanor etc.
