Experts studied the UK’s wealthiest men and women, from the Duke of Westminster to the Heineken heir, and noted similarities in facial features.

Why? According to personologists (psychologists who study facial features and behaviour), strong physical characteristics represent strong personality types. And people with strong personalities tend to be most successful.
Of course, looks aren’t everything. “Whether or not you match up to our ‘Face of Success‘ images, one of the most important factors in business success is being in the right job at the right time,” Riley says.
