Mitt Romney's Face Tells All—or Most, or Perhaps Just Some.
Now that the GOP primary battle is down to the two-man race Ron Paul initially predicted, it is time to get to know our opponent. Who is Mitt Romney? The answers cannot be found in what he says, for his words change with the wind and his promises are never set in stone. His record and statements flip and flop around more than the large-mouthed bass I accidentally caught while practicing casting techniques. Who is Mitt Romney deep down inside? A simple peek at his face hints at the answers.
Expert face reader and former trial lawyer Mac Fulfer admits, “The least reliable information that we ever get from people is what comes out of their mouth.” Physiognomy is the ancient practice of studying the human face. Adherents like Mac believe it is possible to learn things about someone’s personality and character from their physical characteristics. With the 2012 election looming, reading the candidates’ faces might be the only truth voters get!
Skeptical? Consider the quotes by three famous men. Shakespeare penned, “God has given you one face, and you make yourself another.” Abraham Lincoln observed, “You are born with one face, but by the age of fifty you have the face you deserve.” He selected his cabinet members accordingly! Mark Twain wrote, “I don’t want no better book than what your face is.”
So, who is Mitt Romney? By the combination of his low ears and low eyebrows, we can see that he processes information carefully, yet has a “get it done perfectly right now” approach for his staff. His eyebrows are also even and straight. This means Romney brilliantly sees all the related aspects of an issue quickly and doesn’t understand why everyone else doesn’t “get it” right away. Therefore, he wants the facts and figures presented to him accurately, but since he is smart enough to figure them out for himself, he is not overly invested in others’ opinions. The lines on his forehead indicate he has worked hard at stretching his intellectual left brain. A sequential thinker, he breaks problems down into pieces and then solves them one step at a time. This trait is indicated by his straight forehead, and is consistent with his irritation at being interrupted about a later step when he was still explaining the solution to an earlier one.
Romney can sense potential problems immediately and is very connected between his inner feelings and outer logic; he is highly intuitive. He is not easily discouraged and possesses resilience under stress, even though he is prone to burnout due to overwork. Romney maintains a good balance between his public and personal life, and relies on Ann to remind him when he is being too hard on himself. He should ease up a bit; the horizontal lines on the bridge of his nose indicate he has reached burnout in at least one area of his life. Since he has a wide variety of interests, perhaps he should develop one into an enjoyable hobby. For the record, campaigning should not count as a healthy hobby. I suggest he abandon running for president as his hobby and instead join a Harvard-style crew team.
Romney probably owes some of his professional successes—and failures—to his obstinate nature. He doesn’t expect life to be gentle or kind and he steels himself to face the world and braces himself for adversity. He takes losses on the chin—his square, driven chin. His small nostrils indicate that he is tight with money. “The eagle probably screams every time he picks up a quarter,” says Fulfer. “Even though he is a millionaire, he will always need just a little more.”
Probably one of the most charming things about Romney is his “big picture” outlook. He has a lot of global understanding regarding the relationship of things to each other. Of note, Ron Paul also shares this trait, although his conclusions about the appropriateness of certain global relationships differ. They have both developed these broader perspectives due to life experience, unlike the former Senator from Pennsylvania whose thoughts are more narrow.
Even though he may seem calm and relaxed on the outside, Romney constantly evaluates everything—much like George H.W. Bush. The two share an important physical trait with their deep-set eyes. He is also reflective, cautious, and observant. He has a logical work style and is a long-range planner. He differs from Papa Bush in that he has a naturally powerful presence. No one wants to argue with his alpha male power jaw and authoritative jowls. Romney is perceived by others as a strong, courageous leader. He is, however, cool and calculating and does hold many secrets. Don’t expect him to open up on some topics. “He plays his emotional cards close to the vest and there are some things that are in the vault,” Fulfer explains. “You could pull his fingernails out and he wouldn’t tell you!”
While Mitt Romney has a more powerful presence than does George H. W. Bush, he is actually quite similar to him in approach. While a prospective Romney presidency might resemble #41’s, he would have an easier time making allies for his causes than did Bush.
With this analysis in mind, perhaps voters and RNC delegates should “go fish” for an alternative nominee. At the very least, face reading proponents can help delegates navigate the shark-infested political waters in Tampa.
