We have all been told at one time or another to "keep our chin up".  Chins indicate our ability to keep going when times get tough and to rebound from a trauma or a shock.  Chins also indicate how well we can take criticism.  Even though the chin section of my book shows many different types of chins, to begin, you can know a lot about a person if you can determine if they have a very small chin or a very large chin.
 Here are the two basic types:
     Very small chin
ok If you felt picked on as a child, it may be because you had a very small chin. As an adult, you have no tolerance for being bullied and may often find yourself rooting for the underdog. To prove your value and worth, you may have always strived to be your best, but at the same time you can feel wounded by the criticism from others. After all, if you are trying as hard as you can, any additional criticism can feel overwhelming. You are also probably too hard on yourself, which is why criticism can be so painful. Outside criticism can feel like you received no acknowledgment for your efforts. You have a naturally sensitive nature and are already aware of your own faults so any additional negative feedback is not really that helpful. It just feels like someone pointing out to you what you already know. You respond best to "please" and "thank you" but may resent anyone trying to bulldoze you or order you around. 
Chin size is dictated by testosterone levels at certain stages of fetal development: the more testosterone the bigger the chin.People with small chins have often had to endure feeling run over and pushed aside by their more aggressive big chinned friends and neighbors.
     Very large chin
big chin You are naturally competitive and assertive. You feel like given a level playing field, you are just as good as anyone. You also have great endurance and can bounce back from physical setbacks. When the going gets tough you can keep going. Your big chin may also give you the ability to grab the attention and get the last word in the argument. Your challenge may be to avoid giving the impression of being a bull in a china closet. Your assertive ways may earn the
ire of your rivals and those with smaller chins. Earthy and grounded, you have a  good sense of physical reality including a sense of direction. You can take most of life's challenges "on the chin".  Your feelings are not as easily hurt as people with smaller chins. Developing sensitivity to others will make you an even stronger, more effective leader.
Theory: There is an automatic response by human beings to chin size. From the earliest times in our human history, big chins, at a subconscious level, have been associated with being more masculine, aggressive, assertive and fearless. Even today, in a close political race the person with the biggest chin is often perceived as being the stronger leader.  

Olympic  Chins

  Watching the broadcasts of the recent Winter Olympic Games, I was often struck by the size of the athletes chins. Listening to their stories of supreme sacrifice and unflinching self-discipline just to get to the Olympics, made me aware of how much of their personality was reflected on their faces. I saw in the big chins of Bode Miller, Lindsey Vonn, Shani Davis and Evan Lysacek , all gold medal winners, not the guarantee of victory but a reflection of the sheer determination and stamina it takes to devote unending hours in practice for an event that was measured in factions of a second or the tiniest slip on the ice.
Even Apolo Anton Ohno who has a smaller chin sports a "chin enhancer" in the form of his trademark "soul patch", thereby giving himself a bigger chin. His enhanced chin reflects his burning competitive inner spirit. If asked why he wears it he would probably not know, or would claim it makes him look better. He would never realize the subconscious boost to his own confidence and self perception that having a bigger chin gives him.
However,  I noticed at least one Olympic athlete with a very small chin. Meryl Davis a U.S. athlete, and winner of the silver medal in ice dancing did not fit the mold of the typical big chinned competitor. It wasn't until they played an interview from her childhood that I understood. In the interview she explains that she doesn't feel comfortable skating alone. She finds her courage in the bond she feels with her partner. I would also guess that winning for her is less about defeating the other skaters and more about proving her own value and worth and giving her "best".
We have to admire everyone in the Olympics who was willing to compete. They displayed incredible courage in facing not only the possible agony of defeat but also the chance of incurring a severe injury. There were many athletes in numerous events that rose to that occasion and performed through their pain and injuries. Until we study them more closely, we never realize how helpful it is to have a big chin. Having a good size chin, predicted that U.S. Olympic skier, Lindsey Vonn would have the courage and determination to propel herself down the ski slope with gold medal speed while enduring a painful shin injury.
While face reading does not diminish the achievements of any of the incredible individuals competing in the Olympics, it helps to understand how they can sometimes accomplish goals that seem almost humanly impossible. It is written all over their faces.

me at 10
In grade school I had a best friend/rival. We were the two fastest kids in our grade. When we got to the 7th grade we both went out for football.
The first day the coach, not knowing anyone, lined us all up against the wall. He went down the line and said, "you, you and you go get a new uniform." 
He repeated the process with his next group and they got the best of the used uniforms.
When I was finally chosen there were no uniforms left. I felt I was treated unfairly because my friend was chosen with the first group. In my mind we were equals.
The difference between us was that he had a broad face like a Pit Bull, with a big chin. I had a thin face like a Chihuahua with a small chin. The coach took one look at him and saw a football player while what he saw in me was a waterboy.
But was the coach wrong or unfair? I wanted to think so, but probably not. People with bigger chins are genetically made of tougher stuff than people with smaller chins. In fact, later in life I got a serious knee injury playing hacky-sack. I can imagine what would have been my fate on the football field. The coach in his wisdom may have saved me from a permanent physical injury.
