Nose Shapes

 

Explanations > Understanding body language > Nose Shapes

Turned up | Hawk | Greek | Roman | Nubian | Snub | So what?

 

There are several shapes of nose that can be seen on most human faces. Here is some folk wisdom about what they may mean.

Turned up

Description: Lightly convex side profile, with tip turned up.

Example: Marilyn Monroe

Supposed personality: Supposed personality: Nurturing, loving and supportive. Enjoys new experiences.

Hawk

Description: Strongly convex profile. Thin and sharp.

Example: John Lennon

Supposed personality: Individual, perhaps rebellious.

Greek

Description: Straight profile.

Example: Admiral Lord Nelson

Supposed personality: Logical, cool, rational. Matter-of-fact and straightforward.

Roman

Description: Convex in profile, like a hook. Also known as 'aquiline' (eagle-like).

Example: Abraham Lincoln

Supposed personality: Measured, thoughtful. Influencing. Organisers.

Nubian

Description: Long, with narrower bridge and wide nostrils.

Example: Barack Obama

Supposed personality: Open, curious, exploring. Charismatic and sometimes emotional.

Snub

Description:  Flatter overall and wider at the bottom.

Example: Muhammad Ali

Supposed personality: Quick-witted, rapidly adaptable.

So what?

There is no real psychological research behind all this so please do take it with a healthy pinch of salt. At the very least, it is an entertaining topic for discussion at parties.

At the best, there are some ethnic correlations with nose shape as with other physical features, but connecting these with personality aspects is another rocky road.
