N. Fowler, 1859). Physiognomy, also called characterology, was the evaluation of a person’s character, intellect, and abilities based on facial features. It originated in the 18th century in the work of Johann Lavater (1741–1801) and was promoted in the United States by the Fowler brothers and others. The system emphasized the eyes, nose, chin, and forehead as the principal indicators of character. When a young Charles Darwin interviewed for the naturalist position on board the British research ship Beagle in 1831, he was almost rejected for the job because the ship’s captain, Robert Fitzroy, a believer in physiognomy, determined that the shape of Darwin’s nose indicated he was lazy and lacked determination.
