What does the chin reveal? In normal circumstances, the chin tells you about someone’s WILL to get what they want, and the determination to stand up for what they believe in.
It can be said that the chin can be classified into some specific, discrete categories.
Pointed, Wide, Broad, Narrow, Receding, and Cleft spring to mind.
And more specifically, you can have broad pointed, narrow pointed and so on.
Here, we will stick to the more common types of chin that you can readily observe in everyday life.
Let’s begin with the wide chin or broad chin.
This is a strong, stable character.
You will find a practical, functional and matter-of-fact person.
They can be confrontational and able to assert their will if challenged.
Here are some further points.
This person does not give way easily.
They will fight their corner and remain steadfast.
They have a noticeably physical vitality.
The next chin is the pointed chin.
This belongs to a sensitive person.
Mind you, they can get upset almost at the drop of a hat.
Here’s some more information about the pointed chin.
They can have difficulty keeping it together and staying grounded.
They can be indirect in communicating what they really want.
They can express themselves strongly.
Now the chin that juts forward and out.
This chin belongs to a person with a strong sense of determination.

Given this tendency and drive it is possible for disappointment to occur, particularly when a person lacks flexibility.
Here’s a summary and more characteristics.
They can have a strong will.
They are comfortable imposing their will on to others.
