Reading Faces

GUESTS: Leslie Zebrowitz Author, Reading Faces: Window to the Soul? (Westview Press, 1997) Helen Fisher Anthropologist, Rutgers University What type of face do you have? A babyface? A mature face? Oval or heart-shaped? Your face is often the first thing that people look at. And it can send a message about your character and mood. The information faces provide and the way we link certain facial qualities with personality types all factor into others' perceptions of us. Join Ray Suarez and guests for a look at faces, on the next Talk of the Nation, from NPR News.
