What is a facialist?

A "physicist" is someone who deals with facial science, also known as physiognomy. Facial science is the study of attempting to infer character traits, personality traits, or even future events from the physical features of a person's face. This practice has a very long history and has its origins in various cultures.

It is important to note that the scientific community generally does not recognize physiognomy as a reliable or valid way to predict a person's personality or future. Studies have shown that there is little to no reliable correlation between facial features and personality traits. Nevertheless, facetology remains popular in some cultures and contexts as a form of esoteric or pseudoscientific practice.
