Is this true about jaw width and chin height?

The male jawbone is usually more heavily built throughout than the female one. It is squarer at the angles and the angles may also flare outwards. The chewing muscles (masseter muscles) also tend to be larger in men (sometimes a lot larger) and this adds to the width at the back. Many people expect mens jaws to be wider in relation to their cheeks than women's but in fact, the width of the jaw relative to the width of the cheeks tends, on average, to be almost exactly the same for both male and female.. 

The width of the jaw and the height of the chin are closely linked and you should not alter one  considering how it will affect the look of the other. Basically, if you shorten the chin you will make the jaw look wider and conversely, if you narrow the jaw you will make the chin look taller. 


I understand that a short chin can make the jaw appear but this...
How in the fuck, I can't comprehend this.

Simply because of the width-to-height ratio change. 

A tall person might be just as wide as manlet and yet their width is percived very differently. Same principle.
