Ideality is a faculty from the discredited pseudoscientific discipline of phrenology. Ideality describes the disposition towards perfection, towards beauty and refinement in all aspects of life. It is localized on the temples, above and behind constructiveness. Ideality creates the width of the temples; a weak Ideality means narrow temples.

Interaction with other faculties[edit]
