Objective: The aim of this study has to investigate the relationship some facial dimensions with between leadership personality traits. Methods: 139 university students have participated in our study. Two face photos from the front and the profile have been taken with the digital camera and transferred to the computer. 21 measurements including face and ear distances have been performed. A 32-question questionnaire has been applied to the participants about leadership personality traits. Results: According to the results we obtained from statistical analysis, it has been determined that the upper face length in women has shown a very weak positive correlation with the human leadership trait. A very weak positive correlation has been determined between philtrum length and human leadership trait in women. A very weak positive correlation between philtrum length and charismatic leadership trait in women. A weak negative correlation between philtrum depth and human leadership trait has been found in women. When the correlation coefficients and significance levels between leadership traits and facial anatomic measurements in the men have been examined, no statistically significant results have been found. Conclusion: Upper face length, philtum length and depth in women may give information about leadership personality trait. We hope this result contribute to the different disciplines.
