  1. Reading something in the face is unscientific, if you approach it from this angle. No matter how much I hate gestalt with its ineffective methods, they do one thing very correctly — they will always clarify what this or that grimace on the face means. That is, they learn to distinguish a phenomenon from its subjective interpretation. For example, I can't even tell the difference between being angry, alert, focused, or intensely thoughtful. Some Buddhist monk may look extremely carefree, but he is hardly stupid. That is, no radiation works, because the face expresses both emotions and intellectual activity. If a person is resting or doesn't care about something at the moment, does this mean that they are stupid in principle? The older I got, the less thoughtful I seemed, because I became happier. Was I getting dumber? Doubtful (although who am I kidding). And definitely unscientific. A thousand experiments have already been conducted inside group gestalt therapies — you can't guess what kind of emotion it is. They will make one for seven people and even so you will not guess, because everyone expresses them differently on their face. With the level of intelligence, the task becomes even more difficult, if at all feasible.

  2. By looking at a person, you can determine the mental abilities of a person, since it is the eyes that are our main tool in knowing the world, and how a person uses this tool determines the level of his intelligence. When a person thinks hard about something, it is also reflected in the look.

    The eyes are the mirror of the brain.

  3. Just as a first estimate. Eyes, eyes are important. Facial expression. And everything else in the complex. Clothing, bag, and shoes. Speech and manner of speaking.

    Well, do you somehow distinguish a university professor from a gopnik in the city?

  4. Must not. We have established certain stereotypes about smart people. For example, we are more likely to think of a smart person as some nerdy hikku who sits quietly in a corner than a chela who hangs out with friends and looks carefree. In general, intelligence is a flexible concept. You can tell by the appearance of a student if they understand a particular topic, but not about the ability to understand it. Do you consider an erudite person or a person with potential to be intellectual? You can determine the level of knowledge of a person by his confident face (although there are errors here). With potential, it's harder to answer. A teacher at UNI says that most students are “smart-eyed” (although everyone still kicks the bolts), so it is possible that with teaching experience, the ability to identify intelligent people has a place to exist.

  5. The works of Cesare Lombroso will help you. Although I can say from my experience with people that you should look not at the face, but in the eyes. The eyes are the mirror of the soul. If at the bottom “muddy water splashes” – then you need to be on your guard. You can change your face, but you can never change your eyes. Well, body language is still important, oddly enough… Learn matchmaking.
