Are you left faced or right faced? Facedness (yes, it's a word) and musical ability

There is some evidence that facial dominance is associated with musical ability.

Here's a short article:
http://voiceclassicsstudio.com/student_info/dominant_side_of_face.html

I first came across this concept in an English as a Foreign Language textbook that adapted newspaper and magazine articles for reading exercises. The one I read was slightly different than the one above, but the upshot of both is: Most people are right faced - the right side of their faces are dominant - but the majority of people with great musical ability are left faced.

The first article I read said that you can check your dominance by looking in a mirror and smiling and raising your eyebrows. You will normally see that your mouth, cheek, and eyebrow will rise higher on one side than the other - your dominant side. Well. I did this and it turns out I'm left faced. I must be a musical genius! But, alas, no Unsure Whereas, according to these articles, most musical geniuses are left faced, not all left faced people are musical geniuses.Tongue

So, get out your mirrors and smile! Are you left or right faced? There are two parts to the poll - one concerning facedness, one musical ability.
