Facial features as character predictors: phenotypic approach testing
AbstractThis paper presents the results of testing the hypotheses concerning the
connection between some phenotypic bodily features and such individual
psychological characteristics as aggressiveness, impetuosity, pedantry,
passivity, etc. In particular, studied the validity of using appropriate
representations of phenotypology to predict respective character traits.
The results obtained disprove the possibility of a direct use of the
phenotypic approach for reliable characterological profiling.
