Facesper

zxvasdf

Created by: zxvasdf

Pronunciation: Faces per

Sentence: She would sit in the middle of pedestrian traffic and be engulfed in emotion, her delicate talent facespering strains of thoughts from the expressions of strangers that streamed past her like writhing eels in a current. A facesper like her had a tendency towards a delicacy in bone structure and diminutiveness in size, as if the swell of emotion splayed on the faces of the world caused the body to shrink inwards. Facesperate attempts by non-sensitives were the subject of ridicule by true facespers.

Etymology: Face (anterior part of the skull) & ESP (Extra Sensory Perception)& -er (one that has)

I like how you incorporated the ESP into your word - Jabberwocky, 2008-10-16: 15:54:00

Visagenary

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: viz ah jen ari

Sentence: Victor had visagenary skills. His ability to tell whether or not a person was lying was legendary. This skill had stood him well through his life and was very handy when dealing with the children he taught in school. He taught them that the truth was their only option, because you could never tell who had this power besides him. It helped while dating (her lips were smiling but her eyes weren't...) And he could have been a human lie detector for the CIA or FBI or the police. Victor figured as long as he had the gift, he might as well earn some money with it. That's when he started on the Celebrity Poker circuit and won millions with his visagenary talents!

Etymology: Visage (the human face; the appearance conveyed by a person's face) & Visionary (a person with unusual powers of foresight,seeing ahead; knowing in advance; foreseeing)

Miensavvy

Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: meen-SAV-ee

Sentence: It seems that even without someone speaking, but just thinking about speaking, Roxie was able to interpret their faciaguile and see through their emociopacity with ease. Call it prosoperspicacity or - in layman's language - mugnous; or perhaps, even better, miensavvy, she could read others like an open book.

Etymology: blend of MIEN; Bearing or manner, especially as it reveals an inner state of mind: MENSA(?):M-, the name of an organization for people of IQs of 148 or more founded in England in 1946, & SAVVY.: Well informed and perceptive; n. shrewdness; practical understanding
