    Question Physiognomy and Character

    Do you think we can discover temperament and character from outward appearance?


    Do you believe that facial features show qualities of mind or character by their configuration or expression?

    I believe the face and speak volumes about a person's character and that this is true in most cases. I associate a Nordic face with a fair complexition with high rational ability and a certain reserve.

    I have seen stunningly beautiful whores, who were totally depraved and wicked. Their actual character is not really what one would have expected from their physiognomy. At first glance I though they had a high level of purity and moral standards, but it turned out to be the opposite.

    As have I. I don't mind these girls. But I would never marry one. :

    Between races I think it's possible to a certain degree, but not, or at least only minimal, within a single race. I believe that our way of communicating and otherwise interacting with one another is of much bigger importance than facial or body- features, when it comes to grasping the character of a fellow Nord.

    The famous (and controversial) psychologist Arthur Jensen has some interesting points in regard to this (i.e. the connection between racial physical appearence and ditto inward characteristics) that I'd recommend everybody on this forum to get acquinted with.

    Positive traits coralate positively.

    As to whorish young women they don't look good after about a 15 years when their evil catches up to them.

    Yes, absolutely. I can always tell what a person is like based on their appearance. It is not a matter of equating beauty with kindness, however, for we all know of unfriendly individuals whom, by most standards, would be considered beautiful (though I only consider those who have kind features to be beautiful).

    Quoth Schopenhauer:
    I am... of the opinion that the science of physiognomy cannot go any further with certainty than to lay down a few quite general rules. For example, intellectual qualities are in the forehead and the eye; ethical qualities, manifestations of the will, are to be read in the mouth and the lower half of the face. Forehead and eye elucidate each other; either of them seen without the other can be only half understood. Genius is never without a high, broad, finely arched brow, but such a brow is often without genius. Intellect may be inferred from a clever appearance the more certainly, the uglier the face is, and stupidity the more certainly from a stupid appearance, the more beautiful a face is, because beauty, as fitness and appropriateness to the type of humanity, carries in and by itself the expression of mental clearness; the opposite is the case with ugliness, and so on. (World as Will and Representation, Vol. I, p. 57n)
    It is my opinion that aesthetics and physiognomy are the material manifestations of an individual's metaphysical Self (as opposed to one's behaviour and appearance being the product of evolution; the reason for families bearing similar traits is, IMO, due to folk-spirit. One's Self is an extension of the spirit of their race).

    I don't think Schopenhauer looks like the Jew David Ben-Gurion. Looking at Schopenhauer's portrait one can clearly see he is of Germanic extration. While Ben-Gurion clearly looks semite with a big bulbous hooked nose.

    Right. Schopenhauer and a Jew have the same hair style, therefore none of his philosophy is valid.

    I personally think that Schopenhauer looks like he is of some degree of UP and Alpinid blood. Not having an actual picture of him makes any classification rather difficult, however.

    Edit: Actually, there may be some photographs of him. Another drawing:
