Personology is a Bunch of Crap

Personology is a field which seeks to explain personality through facial traits. This assumption might be valid, but the people who work in the field seem to do a crappy job at proving it.

The truth in personology might be in the fact that the way you see yourself affects your attitudes. If you have the appearance of a strong leader, your personality will grow in that manner.

Personology, however, isn't very scientific. It's not a peer-reviewed field. All of the information available on it are on websites where people are trying to make money. Additionally, there's too many variables. If there are some 200 traits to define a person, the personologist can selectively choose traits to define the person.

It's a field that could have value but--as of now--is poorly executed.
