Newsletter – May 2015

WP_20150501_014Hullo from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada – We’ve just enjoyed a three day weekend participating in the National Emergency Nurses Association ‘Prepare for the Unexpected’ Conference that I mentioned in the last newsletter.  Two-hundred and fifty Emergency Nurses from all across Canada and many parts of the United States have been here learning and sharing valuable insights, experiences and skills.  It was a fabulous atmosphere!  I presented a workshop titled ‘Behind the Mask – An Assessment Tool for Interviewing’.  We’ve had the opportunity to share time with new acquaintances as well as special friends we’ve met at previous conferences.  Thank you to all.

How many of you have discovered Microsoft’s face-reading app that guesses your age with a single photo?  Thousands have!  If you are curious, check it out on How-Old.net.  The program will analyse any photo you upload, detect any faces and guess the person’s gender and age.  Let me know how you get on with this one!

Cheers, Glenna

  1. Facial recognition – human eye v. computer

For years scientists and computer programmers have been trying to develop technology that can match or outperform humans in facial recognition. They are getting closer – check out the article at https://medium.com/the-physics-arxiv-blog/the-face-recognition-algorithm-that-finally-outperforms-humans-2c567adbf7fc.  However, surpassing the human ability to accurately identify faces under a variety of circumstances is still a challenge.

  1. Eye movements can be tested to diagnose mental health problems

British scientists have developed a camera test that analyzes patient’s eye movement and can diagnose a range of serious mental health problems. Researchers have found eye movement abnormalities are reliable markers to assist in differentiating schizophrenia from bipolar disorder and severe depression.  These eye movement tests result in 95 percent accuracy within thirty minutes of testing for conditions that traditionally take several years to diagnose.

  1. Glenna’s reading of the April 2015 Face of the Month (www.glennatrout.com)

Great comments on Bruce’s eyes – once again Alex from Belgium nailed it with his ‘read’ stating that this individual ‘can be very serious and likes conversation on a higher level.  The private side shows he is positive, social, wants to help others; he is honest and open.  He is a perfectionist and also wants others to work to this standard’.  Susan (USA) wrote of the immense joy she sees in the eyes which does not completely screen some sadness that’s there, too.  Several of you mentioned the nearly equal presence of joy lines going up as well as down from his left eye.

Do you remember what this means?  None of you mentioned the rhetoric lines that were addressed in last month’s newsletter, but I’m sure you see them here as well. May full faceThere is also an immense amount of healing visible in and under both eyes, although still some protective squinting in his ‘social mask’ eye.

This is Bruce’s full face photo … please do write and tell me your expanded impressions.

For those studying personality programs those visible in just his eyes include Bootstrap, ORD and AYM.

  1. FAQ’s – “Is it easier to use a picture or a real person to learn to read a face?”

Glenna replies –  When learning to apply the tools of face reading, most of my students have found it easier to use photographs or drawings.  While ‘real people’ are fascinating, there are so many distractions to divert attention away from applying the very basic tools of face reading.  Fast moving emotions scrolling across the face, wind moving through their hair, eyes and head moving in various directions, the way the mouth changes as they speak, listen and think . . . In a photograph it is much easier to isolate the transitory emotion, then seek information on the more deeply etched emotions in the face.  From there, you can explore the various personality programs as well as each of the facial features and their associated meaning. Using a photograph, you have time to practice decoding the many layers of information in a face.  Trying to learn the basics with a real person is possible, just more challenging.  (Try carrying on a conversation while mentally doing a mirror image of the ‘social mask’ and comparing that with the mental mirror image of the ‘private’ side of their face!  With practice it does become easier . . .  honest!)

5.  Eyes of the Month – May 2015

First, I would like to express my appreciation to everyone who has sent me photographs, as part of my year long feature on ‘eyes’.  If you would like to be featured please e-mail a full face photo to glenna@glennatrout.com

Cindy_eyes My international guest this week also lives in North America, and I invite you to study the eye’s and make your judgment.  Next month, my interpretation will include my ‘reading’ of their eyes and the full face. Throughout this year I provide a full in-depth reading of their face, free of charge, to the person chosen each month. I look forward to receiving your thoughts and observations at any time.

Until next month, all best wishes,

Glenna
