ABSTRACT

1. Objective This research looks into the facial characteristics of Sasang constitution. 2. Methods It assigns and measures the length of nine areas of the face using a picture, and calculates the proportions and gives statistical data of these items. It also references the proportion of the items using the contents of 『Sanghakjinjeon』(『相學眞傳』) Ten face-types as a basis, divides the face into seven types, looks into the similarities between constitutions, and also compares it to clinically and frequently used constitutional facial characteristics. 3. Results and Conclusion After comparing the analytical items between Taeumins, Soyangins, and Soeumins, Soeumins had an oval face due to the fact that the length and width that their lower faces took up was small compared to the entire face. After dividing the facial characteristics of the test subjects using 十字相, there were significantly more Taeumins in Dong(同)_face-type, and Soeumins in Won(圓)_face-type. There weren't any significant group that Soyangins showed up in. After comparing these facial characteristics with that of previous facial characteristics found in books and used clinically, we were able to find corresponding items.
