Have you ever noticed that there is often an interesting story behind great products? This is no different.
My name is Bill Cordingley. I’m a married guy with three grown children and I’ve been reading faces for about 45 years.
Four decades is a long time to do anything, especially when it’s something you love. And those years have given me countless opportunities to use and expand my face reading knowledge.
It’s also plenty of time to prove how well The Face Frontiers Method of face reading works and notice how much it has influenced me and my relationships.
I can honestly say that this technique has shaped my life in very positive ways.
Knowing face reading helped transform me from a retiring, insecure young man into a much more confident and social person who can “read” people like a book.
“I’m not going to hire you”
How I got into face reading started with bad news.
I had been interviewing for a job I really wanted and it seemed to be going very well. In fact John, my company contact, and I had become great friends. So, when he called and invited me to join him for an early breakfast the next day, I expected great news.
The news was bad. “I’m sorry, Bill, but I’m not giving you the job,” John said, fully knowing how much I was counting on it. “You’re just not really suited for the position.
“But…,” he went on, “I think you’re perfect for helping out someone I know. She does face readings. She can look at anyone’s face and know all about them. Her name is Mazury and she needs help writing a book about it.”
My thoughts and emotions swirled. Not only did I not have the job I wanted and expected…I was being asked (pushed) to help some woman write a book instead, when what I really needed was a job.
“Face reading? What’s that? It sounds crazy!” I remember thinking. “Are you kidding?!”
Let’s just say I was more than a little skeptical and, at first, not exactly open to the idea.
The way I used to be
Before I go on, you need to know more about who I used to be.
When I was young I was a pretty typical kid in many ways. But I didn’t like myself very much.
Honestly, I felt like I never quite fit in, whether at school or in church or after-school activities.
I was very timid and hated meeting or even talking to people. This only got worse later on when I became aware of girls. Not surprisingly, since I mostly stayed to myself I had few real friends.
When I couldn’t avoid it and had to socialize, I was the guy who held back in the corner as long as I could. Trying to look confident, I slowly gathered up my courage before engaging.
Finally, my hands shoved deep in my pockets, I would force a smile, slowly edge myself forward toward the person or people I had to meet, stick out my hand and introduce myself with as few words as possible.
“Hi, I’m Bill,” was about as much as I could usually say.
If I was lucky the other person would smile back and introduce themselves then immediately start talking. If they did, I could breathe again and we could have a conversation of sorts.
And then there were girls
It was the same with girls except worse. I was super-nervous, fidgety and awkward. And my forehead and the back of my neck would always ooze sweat like crazy.
My mouth got dry and my constricted throat caused my voice to rise to a higher pitch. And, if the girl didn’t immediately respond with a big welcoming smile (most didn’t), I was ready to turn and flee.
During high school I got pretty good at faking it. I had to. I was at a brand new school where I didn’t know anyone. But while I got better at looking relaxed, friendly and confident I was just shoving all my insecurities deeper within.
By the time I got to college I was actively searching for ways to feel better about myself so I could grew my self-confidence. I hoped I’d find a way to connect with other people (especially women) more easily. But nothing really changed during those four years.
After graduating, though, everything began to change. It started when John introduced me to Mazury.
Mazury had the answer I desperately wanted. In her face reading technique, which she called Psycho-Graphicology (and what we’ve now branded The Face Frontiers Method), I saw a way to like myself a lot more, to know other people much better, and to meet people—even women I put on pedestals—with much greater ease and confidence.
The master face reader
I recall our meeting as if it were yesterday. Mazury, a small woman in her fifties, stood before me at her front door. As we shook hands for the first time Mrs. O’Connell looked up at me and quickly scanned my face. Then she smiled broadly.
“Oh, yes, yes, yes,” she said, apparently seeing things in my face that suggested I could help her with her book.
Over the next 90 minutes she rattled off dozens of things about me, personality traits like my drives and abilities that she had no possible way to know, things even my best friends didn’t know.
It was obvious she knew me intimately, even though we had only just met and I’d told her absolutely nothing.
My life changes radically
I knew right away this was everything I had been looking for—an accurate, revealing and easy way to see past people’s facades and right into who they really are and what makes them “tick.”
Plus I saw an outstanding way to comfortably, confidently meet and connect with just about anyone I wanted to.
I was so moved by the accuracy and detail of her reading my face—and the potential it had to help me start and improve my relationships—that I agreed to write her book on the spot.
At that moment I would have followed her anywhere to learn what she knew!
So I decided, then and there, to spend that next summer alongside her at her Cape Cod sidewalk kiosk where I could watch her work and learn more about her technique.
For almost three months that summer I slept in my car and spent my days watching her analyze hundreds of people. Tourists in Hyannis that summer would see her sign and walk up to her booth, either to have their portrait sketched or have their faces analyzed.
Those whose faces she read would almost always leave amazed and offering their sincere thanks.
“I think you blew their minds,” I said often as I watched them walk away.
Repeatedly seeing how amazed and impressed people were at her analyses, I had unshakable proof it worked. I also saw how it had the potential for helping people develop richer, better, deeper relationships.
During that summer I changed dramatically.
At its start in June I was my old awkward, stumbling self when it came to meeting people. But by the end of August, when I knew something about analyzing faces, I felt and acted much different…
When I saw someone I wanted to meet, I’d spend a few moments studying their face. Then, with rock-solid confidence that came from within…something I’d seldom felt before…I’d smile a sincere and easy smile, introduce myself and start a conversation.
Day by day I got better and better as I got more practice.
When summer ended, wanting to learn more, I picked up everything again and moved to live near Mazury and her family so we could work on the book.
I spent the next 18 months doing just that.
Meeting (and reading) my future wife
Ever since that summer I’ve been “reading” the faces of all sorts of people I encounter, especially important individuals in my life.
For 45 years I’ve explored the faces and personalities of friends and strangers alike. I’ve “read” the faces of acquaintances, bosses, coworkers and salespeople. As a single man I studied the faces of women I dated or just wanted to meet. I’ve also studied thousands of pictures and broadcast images of politicians and national leaders, celebrities and others.
But the biggest payoff for me was when I met Pam on a blind date. (I studied her face the moment I set eyes on her and instantly liked the traits I saw. I knew they were compatible with my personality. What happened? A few years later we were married. And we’re still together almost 40 years later.)
I can’t begin to tell you how many times I’ve used it to wonderful ends…when meeting people in groups or at parties, when interviewing, when connecting with colleagues at work, figuring out how to talk to people close to me so they can hear me…not to mention being the occasional center of attention at parties as “the face reader.”
And you know what? Mazury’s face reading technique proves its accuracy over and over again. And every time I use it I get better and gain more insights.
I’m so different
Using it has changed me, too.
Besides becoming much moreconfident when meeting people, by studying my own face and learning more about who I am, I have become far more comfortable talking to individuals, groups and working with teams.
I know more about my abilities and talents. I know more about what I’m good at and what I’m not.
And because I know who others are at their core…I can usually start a conversation, to say things in ways they can hear, engage with them easily, and often know reasonably well how they’re going to react.
I always feel more connected, and sense they feel that way about me.
A successful book
And that book we were working on…what happened to that?
It took a long time, but I completed our book In Your Face just about the time Mazury passed away. It met with wide approval from the media and readers, and not surprisingly sold out.
Sadly, it’s never been reprinted…until now.
My book is back, totally updated
In Your Face presents 13 of the most significant, most useful features one can see on the face that are also some of the easiest to identify.
We chose them specifically to help beginning face readers have an easy time learning so you can gain the knowledge and the confidence you need to “read” faces well and learn some very important information at the same time.
As good as In Your Face is, it’s still a book. And people often have trouble taking what they read in books and turning it into action, incorporating into their behavior.
It would be tragic if that were to be the fate of this powerful, groundbreaking work.
As good as this face reading information is—and for me it’s served me at least as well as my college and graduate school education—I’ve decided it needs to get out into the world in a more complete, more comprehensive way.
And that brings us to where we are now.
Ready to learn face reading?
Now, having used this to great benefit in my own life–and since I’m the only person who trained with Mrs. O’Connell and who knows the entire method–I have decided it’s time to share more of this method with the world.
