Why do we attribute certain facial traits with personality traits?

Probably a little bit of all three depending on the trait.

Height for example can halo you pretty hard. Imagine a tribe of 6'2 warriors vs a tribe of 5'5 manlets back int he hunter gatherer days, the 6'2 men would be far better protectors and would be more valuable. On top of that, good development is usually the result of good hormones/health/nutrition. This means the person is likely smarter because they got to develop to their full potential, and they're more powerful and more likely to protect you than leech of you.


world is shallow, but for good reason
