[quote="CatInTheHat"]Our face is the first thing other people see when they meet us, see us for the first time. It is very much a part of who we are and our presentation to the world of ourselves. Especially as we grow and can control certain things, like make up, hair style, etc, in that presentation to the world.

I totally agree. Our face is who we are as a person, it's how others recognize us. Without a face, we'd all be the same. It's kind of like giving someone your driver's license if you really think about it.

I think there is more to us than just our faces. I have been able to recognize someone from the back through posture, clothing style, hair color, and their idiosyncrasies. I think it really depends on how much a person relies on their facial features as a means to define their identity rather than it being the whole sum of identity.

Identity is about so much more than our faces - it is our beliefs, our values, our behaviours etc. But we look in the mirror every morning so we are more focused on our own faces, and how they represent our identity, than those of others.

Perhaps it would be best to say that the face is a way to identify you, but it is not your actual identity. Identity, to me, is a much more complex issue than looks. One may have the perfect face or the perfect body, but what if he or she is actually a jerk. What is the identity there? The person is a jerk.
