The Complete Guide to Jaw in Chinese Face Reading (2022)

In Chinese face reading, physiognomy, or Mien Shiang, the jaw has quite similar meanings with the chin, which indicates determination, willpower, and anger. Generally, the bigger and larger the jaw, the stronger the fighting attitude.

The ancient Taoists regard the jaw as “the root of the tree”. Hence, a strong jaw is able to withstand big wind, which is a symbol of strong character standing against life challenges.

Reading the jaw is quite different from reading other facial features such as the eyes, lips, or ears because it doesn’t have many variations. Yet, this may be beneficial for face readers because it makes our job easier.

In this post, I will guide you through the meaning of the jaw based on the art of Chinese face reading.

1. Large, Broad, and Strong Jaw

A large, broad, and strong jaw symbolizes the strength of character. This person has extremely strong-will who can be a great fighter or warrior. In fact, many soldiers fighting for their own countries have this kind of jaw. You can also see a large jaw appearing in the face of disciplined weightlifters.

In Chinese face reading, people with large and prominent jaws cannot be pushed over by challenges. They have strong beliefs, principles, and standards that they adhere to. In fact, the bigger the jaw, the more fighting attitude a person has to fight for whatever he believes in.

A large and big jaw only indicates strong beliefs, but it doesn’t guarantee that the beliefs are positive. Therefore, people with this kind of jaw can be very aggressive, stubborn, and violent in nature. They will argue until death even though they inwardly know that they are wrong. They just don’t want to accept it because it makes them look weak in front of others.

The Chinese interpret that a strong jaw is a sign of abundant energy and self-driven quality. If they are determined to achieve something, it is likely that they will achieve it. However, these people need to learn to cooperate with others due to their fiery nature. In fact, many people fear people with strong jaws just only by seeing them around.

2. Small and Narrow Jaw

In the Chinese art of reading faces, small and narrow jaws belong to people who are more cooperative and diplomatic. These people value peace instead of confrontation. They always want everyone to get along and are great mediators if there are conflicts arising.

Having a small and narrow jaw means that a person can be easily influenced. When the root of the trees is not strong, it can be pushed over by the strong wind. Therefore, people with small jaws need to learn to stand up for themselves. They can take advantage of their social skill, but it doesn’t always guarantee that it is the best way to solve their problems.

In contrast to strong jaws, people with small, narrow, or weak jaws do not like to fight. That is, they want to blend in the crow and work together as a team. These people are prone to emotional upheaval due to their lack of strength. In fact, many people with small jaws make their decisions based on emotions rather than using their heads.

A small and narrow jaw also indicates issues with self-confidence and self-assurance. They tend to agree with other people’s opinions even though these people completely disagree with them.

3. Clenched Jaw

It is a fact that anger makes people to grind teeth, and grinding teeth develop the jaw. Therefore, people with clenched jaws have a big issue with anger, frustration, and aggression. These people are constantly in an angry and tense mode.

Chinese face reading associated a clenched jaw with the wood element due to its aggressive nature. A clenched jaw is another version of a large and broad jaw. Yet, people with clenched jaws tend to hold resentment inwardly and for a long period of time. They can be irritable and unforgiving.

4. Dropped Jaw

A dropped jaw is similar to a slack jaw, which indicates a jaw that is dropped because of amazement or surprise. It is said that people with slack jaws are not quick-witted and need help in most situations. They are not quick to react and need much patience to succeed.

When reading faces, the Chinese also associate the dropped jaw with its causes. That is, people with dropped jaws are continually in a state of surprise, amazement, and even fright and terror.

These people may not sleep well if they watch horror movies in movie theaters. It is also said that a dropped jaw signifies that a person is uncertain and disbelieving.

5. Moles on Jaw

Moles on the jaw should be interpreted the same as moles on the chin. Thus, I suggest you to check out my posts on the meaning of moles on the chin to further broaden your knowledge.
