As a rule, the face is the first thing that we notice in people whom we see for the first time. Few people know that certain parts of the face can tell a lot about our past and our health. The chin is one of those parts.

Traditionally it was believed that an outstanding chin is a sign of sexuality and masculinity. Ostensibly, the chin developed over the course of evolution to serve as an indicator of a sufficient amount of testosterone and to isolate the male as an advantageous lot, like a peacock's feathers. This theory developed into the basis of the stereotype of superheroes with strong jawlines and chins.

These heroes were portrayed in cartoons and films. Do you remember the outstanding chin of Superman and the lower jaw of Arnold Schwarzenegger? Alas, this assumption is not true, because women can also have prominent chins.

There are many kinds of chins. They can be oval, round or square, short, long, narrow or wide. For example, a pointed chin indicates the complexity of a communicative nature, cruelty and vindictiveness.
