There are several ways to get to know a person's character. Some of these means are extremely interesting and they have fascinated, since ancient times, initiates and researchers of the occult. Today, these old occult sciences (who sought to discover the character of a man in his face, in his bodily appearance, or in his writing) are considered pseudosciences. Lot of 3 (three) very interesting books.
