Let’s continue reading the face of that highly quirky ski-sensation Bode Miller.
Doing face readings along with me, you might prefer to use Face Reading Photo Link 1 or Face Reading Photo Link 2. Or just let your eyes ski down a bit.
Note: Over time, links can go bad. And legally I don’t have the rights to show celebrity photos, so I can’t display them here other than providing links. But you can easily go over to Google, type in the person’s name and the blog post date, then search on images. Click on a good image, preferably current with the time of the reading here at this blog.
Face Reading Item #4: Straight chin bottom
What is it? You can draw a line where that beard is right beneath the man’s chin. If you follow his facial contours, that line will be straight, not curved or angled.
The talent: Choices in life are based on principle. Not convenience. And, clearly in Mr. Miller’s case, not what will make sports executives like him.
The potential challenge: Black-and-white thinking? My way or the highway? My good way to ski versus all the pathetic ways?
Face Reading Item #5: No eyelid thickness
What is it? Even if you expand the photo links here, making Miller’s eyes the size of ski gloves, you still won’t find much in the way of visible eyelid. If he wore green eyeshadow, you wouldn’t see a speck — not unless he were to blink.
The talent: Being a loner, when it comes to his personal values. Doing what he thinks is right, whether or not significant others agree.
The potential challenge: Not needing others. Treating people as extras in his movie, without being especially good at pretending they might also be important actors.
Face Reading Item #6: Down-angled eyes
What is it? If you did enlarge one of Bode’s head shots, look at one eye at a time. Compare the inner corners to the position of the outer corners, and you’ll find they are lower. That means overall angle of his eyes is down.
(About 95% of people have up-angled eyes. While a very tiny percentage have an even-angled eye. What they have, compared to Bode isn’t better, just different.)
The talent: Always able to find the problems, whatever the situation. Fearless at telling what might go wrong.
The potential challenge: Hard for those up-angled people in his life to understand?
Face Reading Item #7: Huge inner ear circles
What is it? Our baseball cap photo above has a bit of a 3/4 view. That displays the structure of Bode’s right ear nicely. (Face readers know to flip over to see left from right in a photograph.)
The talent: A vivid inner life is always more fascinating to him than objective reality.
The potential challenge: Even if Bode adjusts his behavior to become successful in objective terms, will he always place higher value on subjective goals, like having an interesting race mattering more than a prize-winning one?
Face Reading Item #8: Extreme lowbrows
What is it? Bode’s eyebrows nearly tumble into his eyes. Notice that closeness.
The talent: Exceptional spontaneity: Outspoken at a second’s notice. Reflexes that physically help him to turn on a dime.
The potential challenge: Would you like to have the job of controlling this man’s public relations?
The very spontaneity and independence that make Bode Miller a phenomenal skier will have their impact on his thinking, feelings, relationships — everything about his lifestyle as an athlete.
Here’s to him, a unique force on a slope or anywhere else!
