What Your Nose Identity Says About You

What Pinnochio Knew — Your Nose Gives You Away

Ever thought of your nose as a character reference? Outside of fabled children's literature, I never gave much thought to what my nose might say about me. And I didn't think other people did either.

Actually, they do. New computer software called the PhotoFace scans your nose and uses the information to classify your nose "identity" into one of six categories. Turns out, the features of a nose are hard to change, even with plastic surgery, and can't be manipulated like iris scans with contacts or hidden like fingerprints by wearing gloves. Besides, our noses are smack-dab in the middle of our faces (duh!) making them hard to cover up or conceal. So, maybe noses don't grow or change when we're lying, but it turns out, they don't even have to.

Interested in what your nose says about you? Then check it out and let us know what you think of your nose-based character assessment.

I have a greekish nose with a bump. I don't know what that means but I always get compliments from men for some reason. They say I have a strong nose and it's nice to see on a woman. I just think it's big. The traits listed do fit me. I'm a pretty no nonsense person.

I had a hard time picking because I feel like none really fit but, but I picked greek and it does describe me, but I more of an emotion person in comparison to keeping it close to me.

Sailors also have theories on nose shapes and how it relates to a person's ability to handle the ocean's motions. When Darwin went to travel to the Galapagos the captain didn't want him to board because he could tell he'd be very sea sick by the shape of his nose... and he was according to his journals!

I'm a nubian I guess, except with a rounder tip than in the picture--but I have been told to be creative and quite passionate. :) Interesting! But like with most things I'm sure not everyone with an x or y nose is the same as someone who has an x or y nose, too.
