    Recent papers have built on an intriguing study four years ago from Brock University in St. Catharines, Canada.

    Psychologists there found that men – but not women – with a high width to height facial ratio were far more likely to be very aggressive, at least in competitive sports.
    "This facial metric could be used to predict another's propensity for aggressive behavior."

    I'm not sure what to make of this.

    It is about testosterone. Wider jaws and bone structure signal higher levels of testosterone which means more competitive/aggressive characteristics.

    If you need someone to fight for you and your offsping....go for the wide jaw. If you need someone to "nurture and understand you" ....go for high cheekbones/narrow jaw.
