Deeper Perception Made Practical

A DIVERSITY Face Reading Contest

Announcing our latest Face Reading Contest

Announcing our latest Face Reading Contest

Announcing our new face reading contest, hooray! Here’s your chance to propose public figures whose faces you’d like me to read. And yes,  it’s a DIVERSITY Face Reading Contest.

Diversity was discussed in the last blog post: Honoring Diversity with Face Reading

Today, let’s get to specifics about this new face reading contest. It’s open through October 15, 2016. How can you enter?

How to Enter our Honoring Diversity Face Reading Contest

Three prizes will be awarded. Yes, we have three face readings to look forward to. Plus a bunch of fascinating nominations to learn from!

It’s easy to enter our latest contest for a face reading. Choose any public figure, any newsmaker, athlete, or other kind of celebrity — who isn’t “white.”

Since this is a face reading contest, your nominees needs to be at least 18 years of age at the time of the photo. And, of course, this being energetic literacy, I will read the contest winner at the time of this photo. Not for all time. Just for that particular time. ?

Enter as often as you like. Please use a separate comment box for each contest nominee. To be considered a contest entry, your comment needs to include all the following:

  1. Choose a candidate who is not “white.”
  2. Supply the name of your candidate.
  3. Please supply a photo link to your nominee, a one-click type link. Please choose a photo clearly showing that person’s face from the front.
  4. Describe what that person is famous for, because not all of us may know that famous person as well as you might.
  5. Summarize why you’re curious about this person.

Final date for entries to this Diversity Face Reading Contest is October 15, 2016.

May This Diversity Face Reading Contest Inspire You!

After you enter this contest, you need not wait to do face reading on your own. Particularly face reading that emphasizes diversity.

It’s so easy to become a face reader yourself. Which you can do so easily in photographs, as well as in person.

Once you get going, you just might become an ambassador for the humanity of this world’s diverse faces.

  • Mostly the face reading I teach will give you a practical advantage in relationships.

Such delectable inside information!

  • Alternatively you can read your own face. Of course, that’s inspiring. (Once you’ve got a structure for reading faces that doesn’t come from outdated social stereotypes or the blandishments of cosmetic surgeons.)

Celebrating the uniqueness of each individual?  That’s another benefit though, one I usually don’t mention. But today I will. Ha ha!

Contest or No Contest, Face Reading Brings DIVERSITY Fun

What’s the easiest way to start doing your own diversity face readings?

Simple. Get a copy of “The NEW Power of Face Reading.” Then find yourself a variety of faces to read, in person and also in photos.

Face reading is the very easiest kind of deeper perception. You’ll find it easy to become an excellent physiognomist fast!

And what if you already have a copy of one of my face reading books? (Another one in print now is “Read People Deeper“).

Well take it out and start playing.

Face reading doesn’t require a contest or some other special occasion. You can do it right now. And, with Face Reading Secrets® , you’ll always win. 🙂

    I nominate Tulsi Gabbard. I find her inspiring because of what she has accomplished so far in such a short amount of her lifetime, her voting record, her service, and her courage to follow through and act on her principles.

    I also love that she looks similar to me: olive skin, dark hair, mixed race heritage, and affinity towards Hinduism.

    Plus, I just think she’s a gorgeous person inside and out! 🙂

    Bridget says:

    Much of what is provided below comes from Rep. Gabbard’s Wikipedia page:

    Tulsi Gabbard is best known as a member of the Democratic Party who has been the United States Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district since 2013.

  3. 3
    Bridget says:

    She became a household name when she resigned as vice-chair of the Democratic National Committee until February 28, 2016, so that she could endorse and campaign for Bernie Sanders’ Democratic presidential nomination.

  4. 4
    Bridget says:

    In 2002, at the age of 21, Rep. Gabbard became the youngest legislator ever elected in Hawaii’s history and the youngest woman elected to state office in the nation.

  5. 5
    Bridget says:

    She represented the Oahu 42nd District, which covers Waipahu, Honouliuli, and Ewa Beach.

    Rep. Gabbard was born in American Samoa, her father was born in American Samoa, and she practices Hinduism.

  6. 6
    Bridget says:

    She’s also an officer (Major) in the US Army National Guard as a military police (again, courageous and real life experience with victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault!).

    Kylie says:

    I nominate Chimamanda Ngoza Adichie. She is a novelist from Nigeria who has written several incredible novels–including Americanah, Purple Hibiscus, and Half of a Yellow Sun. She is one of the best novelists out there in my opinion, and the one to most clearly describe the experience of being an expatriate and the experience of racism in America. I find her very inspiring. Here is a photo from 2016:

    Led resistance against the US government policies during his lifetime: 1831 – December 15, 1890

  10. 10
    Lilian says:

    Why? Well I’m wondering whether a face that me, as a white European, would register as distinctly “genetically native american” actually reflects a different way of living and acting in community than we currently do in the West.

  11. 11
    Lilian says:

    I chose Sitting Bull as it’s such an iconic image and he was an iconic individual with an iconic face…

  12. 12
    Lilian says:

    So every soul, in every time and civilisation expresses itself as itself. However, different societies run on different principles. The dominant principles in the West seem to be individualism (not necessarily a bad thing!), while in other cultures and times past to physically survive (through Winter etc..) as an individual meant that you had to survive as a group. So living and acting as part of a larger group/tribe was the dominant way of being…

  13. 13
    Lilian says:

    What does Rose think? I’m sure my face shows adaptation to the society I live in…

  14. 14
    Lilian says:

    And who doesn’t like a Sitting Bull quote? People like him have been used to keep certain ideals about protecting the environment and living more in community alive. What is the man behind the legend?

    http://www.brainyquote.com/quotes/authors/s/sitting_bull.html

  15. 15
    Lilian says:

    Finally, this suggestion isn’t anti-US,as such. I’m British and Britain basically invented slavery in the US and all the ideological racism required to support it. Many charming Georgian Jane Austen-esque houses were funded by slavery.. something Jane herself was well aware of. (Read Persuasion..) For some reason, people like Sitting Bull have always been by heros. 🙂

    Brianne says:

    I managed to narrow my nominations down to three – my original list is rather more extensive. There’s just so many people in the world with interesting faces! 🙂

  17. 17
    Brianne says:

    First I would like to nominate Rosa Parks. She is most famous as an African American civil rights activist in the US, one of the key figures to get that movement rolling in the 1950s.

    She is interesting for face reading and this contest in particular because her face does not have many features that are considered stereotypically African American.

    Brianne says:

    My second nomination is Mahatma Gandhi who led India to independence using tactics of nonviolent civil disobedience. His face features many “verys” that would be interesting to learn more about.

    Brianne says:

    And my final nomination is Malala Yousafzai, a Pakistani activist for human rights, particular education for girls and women.

    In 2012, she survived an assassination attempt where she was shot in the head. In 2014, she became the youngest person ever to receive the Nobel Peace Prize. (Kailash Satyarthi was co-recipient for that year’s prize.) That year, she was also granted honorary Canadian citizenship.

  20. 20
    Brianne says:

    She has a beautiful face that does not conform to many western ideals. I’d like to learn more about it from a face-reading perspective.

    Brianne says:

    I meant to say “particularly education for girls and women” in comment #19 😀

    Also, here’s another photo of Malala Yousafzai as the previous link is a little bit angled.

    Ann says:

    Thanks, ROSE, for offering another contest!

    Like BRIANNE, I will have to narrow down my nominations. Before I write them out, here’s a link to a previous face reading ROSE offered at her blog, about author Toni Morrison.

    I loved reading ROSE’s face reading of this African American writer a few years ago, and perhaps others will enjoy it as well (if you haven’t already read it):

    Ann says:

    My first candidate is Congressman John Lewis.

    http://johnlewis.house.gov/sites/johnlewis.house.gov/files/C2.jpg

    I didn’t know of him at all, until I saw him interviewed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah not that long ago. I also saw him speaking at the recent dedication to the Smithsonian Natural Museum of African American History and Culture.

    As a younger man, he was inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., he was the chairman of SNCC (Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee) in the mid 60s, and he, along with others, led protestors across the Pettus Bridge in Selma, Alabama, in 1965. He has served in Congress for 30 years. https://johnlewis.house.gov/john-lewis

    I’m curious about him because of his long history in dedication to human rights in the United States.

  24. 24
    Ann says:

    My second nominee is poet Lucille Clifton.

    http://www.newyorker.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/08LucilleClifton-thumb-300×207-25921.jpg

    She’s been a favorite poet of mine since I took a class on women authors in my undergrad degree, and she was a guest author in the class! She won a National Book Award, and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize; she also won an Emmy and received two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships.

    https://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poet/lucille-clifton

  25. 25
    Ann says:

    My third nominee (but I could have so many more! I’m restraining myself) is actor Titus Burgess.

    https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/M/MV5BMTUxOTQwMzI3Nl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMjM4NTM1NTE@._V1_UY317_CR12,0,214,317_AL_.jpg

  26. 26
    Ann says:

    This is my “less serious” nomination. He’s an actor and singer, and I really like his character in the Netflix show, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt; I learned in researching for this post that he also played Sebastian in the original Broadway production of The Little Mermaid. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tituss_Burgess

    Thanks, again, ROSE, for sharing your time and gifts with us in these contests!

  27. 27

    ANN, you’re so welcome.

    All you Blog-Buddies, contest entries are accepted through midnight tomorrow, October 15, 2016.

    And those of you across the International Date Line, like a certain hotshot who just was in session with me, you get another day to enter this contest. Ha ha!

    Emily T says:

    I would like to nominate Leslie Jones. She was in the recent Ghostbusters film that I loved. She’s also a regular member of SNL at the minute.

  29. 29
  30. 30
    Emily T says:

    I’m curious about her because to me she seems to exude self-acceptance and a light hearted joviality in life.

    She’s not a conventionally pretty actress/comedian so I can imagine she’s had a harder time making it big, considering the excessive focus of showbiz in outward appearances.

  31. 31

    Wonderful nomination, EMILY T. I’m such a fan of Leslie Jones.

    I do wonder who else will add nominations today, on the final day for contest entries.

  32. 32
    Kristine says:

    I’m making my nomination before midnight!

    [Note: Yes, all received in time. Formatted nearly 24 hours later, but that’s on me, Rose.]

    My first nominee is Spike Lee. He is prominently known as an African-American writer, director, producer, and actor.

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000490/

  33. 33
    Kristine says:

    He has used his talent to tell parts of the Black experience ranging across a variety of topics – often controversial topics.

    His movie Do the Right Thing, set in a Brooklyn, NY neighborhood, exposes racial tensions among several complex characters.

  34. 34
    Kristine says:

    His movie Jungle Fever provides a storyline for interracial relationships.

    His movie School Daze highlights the experiences of students at a historically black college and some of the issues with color “within” the Black race.

  35. 35
    Kristine says:

    And his movie Malcolm X shares the history of a powerful civil rights leader, sharing more knowledge of the depth of who Malcolm X was and his impact on the world.

    There’s so much more he’s done (and on topics other than race).

  36. 36
    Kristine says:

    I am curious about him because he talks openly about race and is unapologetic about it.

    Fearless, it seems and his truth will absolutely be told.

  37. 37
    Kristine says:

    My next nominee is Nikki Giovanni. http://www.nikki-giovanni.com/bio

    An amazing African-American poet, activist, educator.

    She’s been called the “Princess of Black Poetry” by the New York Times (she’s also a New York Times best seller).

  38. 38
    Kristine says:

    What fascinates me about her is how sweet her face is and how powerful her words are.

    She has a tattoo of Thug Life in honor of the late Tupac Shakur.

    She has over 20 honorary doctoral degrees.

  39. 39
    Kristine says:

    Reading her biography in her own words in the link above, I got inspired.

    Now in her early 70’s, she is simply refreshing and fascinating.

  40. 40

    With your thought-provoking nominations, KRISTINE, this contest is complete.

    Except for awarding the three prizes. 🙂 I’m look forward to doing to these face readings in weeks to come.

  41. 41
    Brianne says:

    Too late for the contest I know, but here’s an interesting woman I just found out about, Mae Jemison, the first African-American woman to go to space.

    (She was also the first real astronaut to appear on a Star Trek episode 🙂 )

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mae_Jemison

    Third Prize in our Diversity Face Reading Contest went to Face Reading Novelist Chimamanda Ngoza Adichie — and to Blog-Buddy KYLIE.

    Now I’m continuing to work on Second Prize. To be announced later today….

  43. 43

    Second Prize in our Diversity Face Reading Contest has gone to Poet Nikki Giovanni — and to Blog-Buddy KRISTINE.

    Read about her remarkable poet’s characteristic… and more… here.

  44. 44

    Writing the final prize in this contest, it registered to me, LILIAN, that your Comment #13 was intended as a question.

    I didn’t mean to ignore you, and the question is perfectly fine. However, it’s a question for somebody else, not this face reader. I’m not the slightest bit interested in physical anthropology, or any other research about faces adapting. With all respect to anyone who does important work of this kind.

  45. 45

    Face reading is not about generalizing in this manner. The study of YOUR face, here and now, is plenty.

    And if that’s not enough to satisfy you, inquiring mind and all, just collect photos of yourself at five-year intervals. Then do comparison face readings and marvel at all the physical changes and what they mean.

    You just might get hooked!

  46. 46

    Interesting technical point. I just spent 90 minutes beginning an article about Malala Yousafzai.

    It was hard enough to find a photo that was suitable for face reading — from a front angle. And then trying really hard to find one where the face wasn’t partly covered up.

  47. 47

    Yes, even a professional physiognomist plays by these rules.

    Finally, finally, I located one picture that was (barely) acceptable. And then I discovered that the date of the photograph had Malala Yousafzai at age 17. Do any of you face readers happen to know why I had to stop right there? And go find someone else to award a new first prize for this contest.

  48. 48

    BTW, you intrepid face readers, this is non-negotiable. Don’t go hunting for photos that are both old enough and from a straight angle.

    Not unless you also plan to do a guest post face reading. This contest ship has sailed!

  49. 49

    So I’m laughing a bit to myself. Because this kind of educational moment hasn’t come up before on the blog, to my recollection.

    But really, sometimes, you might be tempted as a face reader (or aura reader or Skilled Empath). You might be tempted to make an exception, just this once.

    Who would know?

  50. 50

    Who would know? As I used to tell my son when young, here’s who would know:

    God would know.

    Santa Claus would know.

    The Tooth Fairy would know.

    And YOU would know.

    So don’t do naughty things. 😉
