The saying goes: "Thou shall not judge a book by its
cover". This rings true, especially when we meet people for the
first time. Yet, according to Master Ong Thiam Peng, we are inclined to
make an instant, intuitive judgement during that very first encounter
and we may or may not change that first impression later. Nevertheless,
the point is that we are very ready to judge one's character on the
basis of a person's facial appearance.
the centuries, in China, the innate behaviour of reading faces has been
honed to a fine art. Master Ong said the Chinese were the first to
develop a sophisticated and rational system of telling an individual's
personality and even fate, by the study of facial features and this is
now known as physiognomy.
Ong revealed that one's state of mind, be it jealousy, sympathy or
desire, can be gleaned from the eye. The alignment of the nose can
reveal a deceptive or honest person. The formation of the lip tells
whether he or she is a sensuous lover, and from the shape of the chin,
you can know whether who is the smarter, him or you.
knowledge of physiognomy is certainly an asset, especially in the
commercial and political scenarios as well as in the personal and social
human face is a composite of many features and each feature reveals
something about the personality of the person and governs a certain
aspect of his/her destiny at a particular stage of the person's
lifetime. For example, he said the eyebrows reveal a person's destiny
between the ages of 30 to 35 years. If a person's eyebrows are
well-shaped, nicely textured and dense, then good luck is assured for
that person during those years. However, Master Ong said it is difficult
to see a person blessed with the perfect face.
forehead: governs the age between 15 to 30
forehead reflects one's moral conduct and ethics. It also governs the
person's intellect, and reflects the family conditions during childhood.
It also tells the story of the person's life, especially between ages of
15 to 30. (The ear tells the story from the age of one to 14 ).
ideal forehead is long, high and well developed. However, the ideal
forehead must be balanced by wide ears. But if the forehead is unusually
large, perhaps even out of shape, it may indicate that the person is
the forehead is the hairline. As a general rule, the hairline should be
between two- to three-and a-half inches from the eyebrows.
