"The face is a book, where one writes a lifetime."

Face Reading and Facial Diagnostics Expert, Eric Standop, left his high powered job in the entertainment business over 15 years ago to master face reading as an ancient art form, as well as a cutting-edge diagnostic tool for modern facial analysis and face recognition.

After a chance encounter with a Face Reader in Cape Town that drastically altered his views on how clearly one could see, and understand, another human being by simply looking at the face, Eric set out to learn the range of face reading and facial diagnostic practices from around the world. 

Today, he is the only face reader in the world who can seamlessly employ the many methods of face reading such as Facial Diagnosis, Physiognomy, Siang Mien (Chinese face reading), Micro-expressions, Lectura del Rostro (South American Face Reading) and even Body Language, to process the immense amount of information that our face can reveal. 

The face is a book that one writes a lifetime, and Eric reads the multi-dimensional aspects of an individual such as: personality, hidden talents, strengths and weaknesses, love and relationship styles, nutritional deficiencies and illnesses, and perhaps most importantly, what you were meant to do in your life, and where you might be headed. His astute diagnostic abilities on a wide range of human conditions have made him the go-to advisor for powerful decision makers as well as individuals who seek to better understand themselves.

Are you ready to clearly see and understand yourself?

Born in Karlsruhe, Germany, Eric now travels the world speaking, advising and writing.

Eric is a master of perception and interpretation. His ability to identify and communicate what the face tells about oneself is uncanny, and his consultations are detailed, thorough, and always mind-blowing. He has taught me a lot about life and people. Eric has been invaluable to our leadership team to help us better understand ourselves and what the faces of others reveal.

Alex Cohen - Eric Standop - Face Reader - Face Reading Academy


I was a little nervous about meeting Eric at first as I didn’t know what to expect, but he made me feel very comfortable and explained everything he was doing. He looked at me and he really “saw me”, he knew things about me that I myself had never shared with anyone. This is not fortune telling, it was like reading a map of experience on my face. A map of where I had been and what I was capable of going forward. I hope to one day see myself as clearly and honestly as Eric saw me that one session.

We recently had Eric Standop conduct a Face Reading workshop for a group of high level entrepreneurs and executives in Silicon Valley. We followed up the group workshop with individual face reading sessions. All who attended, found the sessions to be fascinating, insightful, and beyond any expectations that they had for the day. Eric provides deep insights, accurate assessments, and food for thought around all areas of a person's life. Anyone fortunate enough to spend time with him, will not be disappointed.

Lee Woodruff - Eric Standop - Face Reader - Face Reading Academy


I was skeptical and a little nervous to meet Eric for our first session but after five minutes I was captivated. He told me things about myself that he couldn't have learned anywhere else. His reading was fascinating. He has a seamless way of clarifying the past, and connecting it with the present and future, that it felt like traveling through all the mysteries of myself across the years. I saw and understood myself more clearly, and my session with Eric was an experience I will not forget.

Lee Woodruff Founder & CEO Woodruff Communications


Eric helped my team learn to be vulnerable with each other, i.e. by allowing what Eric saw to be shared with in the group. They actually learned that they were all human and more visible than they understood themselves to be. Being ‘seen’ is a powerful tool when building a cohesive team. It was game changing for my team to discover that they can help each other accomplish this after Eric’s sessions.
