I have very poor vision. I have zero night vision. When I speak to someone I rarely am looking into their eyes as I am not seeing them anyways; my focus is more on the body and its subtle language.
As for my own ragged face, now that I am nearing 50, I can clearly see where I have spent a lifetime of emotional pain as my wrinkles do not flare out from my eyes but rather run down my face like tears. Of course they are tears that have long since dried but the memory of them is burned through none-the-less.
I am most certain it is the compassionate who will take "them" down!

but the face is a mirror of character.
When a person goes through life being bitter they tend to clench facial muscles and as they age those muscles become more prominent hence to look upon the face of the eldest one can surmise just what kind of outlook they have held all their lives.
Some people have the kind of face that is comfortable to look upon, while others have that chiseled look of many a worry.
This leads to facial recognition and software developed to determine individuals can also be developed to determine a persons character and who poses a threat.
food for thought

Some folks are very comfortable with being unbelievably evil, and those are the ones who are most successful with being evil.
We call them psychopaths. Your facial recognition software idea fails when you have to deal with the fact that malevolence isn't stressful for the truly evil person. In fact, it's like drinking water and breathing fresh air for these folks. Their faces are smooth, and easy to look at. They have deep smile lines, and put the stress lines on the faces of their victims.
Your facial recognition theory would let these freaks pass and zero in on the people that they've victimized for decades.
I can see many effed up scenarios featuring your application of facial recognition software.

when my girlfriend looks into my eyes she says she sees nothing, empty darkness... and she is right, i never have been a good person, the only good thing i have ever done is create my daughter and be good dad.
I didnt even feel upset when a family member died, and they were a close well loved memeber of the family.. I personally dont think i have a soul.. repent?
so i agree you can tell alot from the face of someone.. i look at people i can tell the evil once by there eyebrows.
