Modern Scientists claim Phrenology has no validity.
Yet the news story reprinted here talks about the shape of the face and it’s relationship to how soccer players behave………..
Scientists refuse to admit that Phrenology, which claims that the shape of the head and landmarks on it are related to the mental, emotional, and personality makeup of an individual, is a valid science.
The study being reported on in the news story below, which looked for links between facial asymmetry and health, is Phrenology in all but name.
The news article reprinted below proves Phrenology is a legitimate scientific discipline in all but name. The story details how scientists have discovered that specific facial looks are associated with certain genetic conditions, which themselves are associated with particular personality and mental characteristics. Which is exactly what Phrenology claims.
Phrenology states that the shape of the head is associated with various emotions etc. The faces described in this study, if they are used over the course of decades, would of course change the shape of the head permanently in some way. Whatever way the head permanently changed would tell the observer which emotion that individual expressed the most over their lifetime, and therefore which one they would be most likely to express in the future.
