Wouldn’t it be useful to know almost anything about someone at a glance? What if you could assess whether or not a date was worth pursuing after the first meeting? For many thousands of years, the Chinese have been reading faces and making fairly accurate assessments about people’s personality, what their interpersonal problems may be, and how they fit into society.
Look at your face and divide it in the middle. No one has a perfectly symmetrical face, especially if your nose has been broken numerous times like mine has.

Now, look at the left side of your face. Do you have a mole, a scar, or a humongous ear (in relation to your right ear)?
The left side of your face, generally speaking, represents the yang, or male side. If you are a guy, this is defined as yourself, your male friends, father, brothers, and so on. If you are a girl, this means the same thing, with the exception of the left side not representing yourself, for obvious reasons.
The right side of your face is the yin, which is the feminine portion of the face. For guys, this is representative of your mom, sisters, female boss, and so forth. As for the girls, this side represents you, your sisters, mom, or the crazy female coworker two cubicles down from you.
Hopefully you don’t have too many anomalies on the right side! If your right side is fuller (even slightly), you care more about the females in your life (or are self-centered, if applicable), according to this source. However, if you have a fuller left side, you care more about the males in your life (or are self-centered, if applicable). According to the Chinese, the nose is the most important “life point”. You have five of them, actually: chin, forehead, cheeks, and nose.

Next, look at your nose for a minute. The nose represents wealth, hence its importance. If you have a straight nose with a round tip and full nostrils of equal proportions on either side, you will have massive wealth (mine is similar to that description, with the exception that my nostrils are narrow and closed). Having narrow nostrils, like mine, are an asset. This means you can hold on to wealth better. The “flabbier” your nostrils are, the worse you are with money and investing it wisely. Is your nose crooked or pointing off to one side more than the other? This is what your money is being spent on. (Refer to the yin and yang side explanation again.) For example, your money is either going to your girlfriend, your boyfriend, your male children, and so on. Ideally, your nose is going straight down, indicating a balance in terms of spending your money. (Having a nose that has been broken many times is perhaps not a good example!)
