Scientists Discover That Humans Have 21 Different Facial Expressions

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.

Asian Heads Are Different From Western Heads

A news story reported helmets made for Western heads did not fit well on Asian heads. After scanning the heads of volunteers, researchers found that the average Asian head is fatter than the average Western head.

Asian heads are fatter than Western heads because Asians have a developed Yin part of the body and Westerners do not.
