Nelson Mandela

Rest in Peace Nelson Mandela

July 18, 1918 – December 5, 2013

Nelson MandelaNelson Mandela even though a public figure, has many admirable traits. When we look at his forehead, notice the deep lines revealing his longevity. The more lines there are, the longer the life.

The width of his forehead reveals his broad understanding of issues presented to him. As well, the flatness of his forehead would suggest a very logical side to his personality.

Oddly the thinness of his eyes, though might have been from the 27 years he was imprisoned and forced to break rocks in the bright sun, shows a very focused view on what he is focusing on.

The breadth of his nose shows he great sense for business and the fact you can’t see up into his nostrils is indicative of his ability of keeping what he had earned.

His larger bottom lip proves he was an excellent listener and a great confidant.

He preferred people get to the point which is revealed by his square chin.

His face, being divided into three sections, 1) hairline to eyebrows, 2) eyebrows to the tip of his nose and 3) the tip of his nose to the tip of his chin reveal 1) the time he spent learning his life skills, 2) applying what he learned and 3) the length of time he lived from what he applied. Obviously the later third of his live was the largest length of time in his life.

He was a man who inspired hundreds of thousands, changed a country into a more understanding unified nation and has left footsteps that are impossible to fill for the ordinary human being.5

Leonardo DiCaprio

I have been a fan of Leonardo every since The Aviator and love him in the new film The Great Gatsby!


I’ll start with his hairline, not referring to the receding lines but the pointed or “V” of his hairline. He is likely to finish projects he starts with very little effort. The

breadth of his forehead indicates he is a broad thinker. He gets the big perspective and understands new concepts quickly. The inset of his eyes reveals he is spends time thinking through concepts probably weighing all sides prior to making a decision.

The roundness of his nose means he enjoys hearing about other people’s successes and the shape of his lips shows he is better at listening than speaking most of the time. You’ve probably witnessed his shy demeanor during interviews.

The roundness of his chin would suggest he prefers his days to be even keel, he does not enjoy surprises or changes in plans.

It’s a good thing he has larger earlobes as his appreciation for the better things in life such as wine, clothing, quality friends etc. is indicated in the length of his lobes!


In an earlier picture you can see how Leonardo’s nose was slightly more pointed which would indicate he might have been more impatient for people to get to the point and not bother him with the details. Also his chin was more square and would have supported his nose trait of “get to the bottom line” and don’t bother me with how you’re going to do it.
