Do facial appearances effect one's ability to succeed in life? Many researchers are starting to think so...

You know their names. They walk into a room and captivate the attention and respect of everyone present. They project success to all who cross their path. What is it that gives all of these men an air of dominance upon which they have built their empires?
Now we know!
Studies are now pointing towards “facial dominance” as a key factor in the success of men in today’s vicious corporate world. Yes, even in advanced society as we know it, evolution and instinct play a huge role in the way we interact and feel about certain people.
A study of West Point Cadets by Allan Mazur and Ulrich Mueller was accurately able to predict the future success of cadets based on their facial qualities. (http://cogprints.org/631/0/Facdom.html)
With this established, what are these qualities !? The most important qualities in facial dominance are: prominent chin, heavy brow ridges with deep set eyes.
The power of facial dominance is of great importance to many of my patients; most of them have always had very prominent facial features namely the chin and brow ridge. Unfortunately the geography of the face tends to change over time and many of the men that gained success early on in their lives now find that same success hard to attain.
