horse personality!

I am learning how to figure out a horses personality but looking it his/her head, swirls, face shape, ears that kind of thing, I would like to practise to see if I am right.
please post a nice side and front view picture of one of your horses and I will guess his personality and you can tell me if I am right! Or if you have a horse you are looking to buy I would love to try and help you find out the kind of horse he/she will be!! Thanks!

Haha these are not the best pics for this but I wil do my best..
Ok, smart! The kind of horse who can figure out how to untie nots and undo latches, likes to play with things in its mouth and chew on things. Has a strong charactor, possibly a herd leader, sensitice but at the same time bold not timmid.
Am I right??

Ok csinkunas6, I am going with.. average intellegance, easy going and uncomplicated, possibly a slower learner but once he knows he doesnt forget, maybe a little shy about things coming towards him.
Am I right?

First one, little guy with whorl below eye level. Stubborn, uninterested, bombproof, easy to teach...when you can get him interested in what he's doing.

Second one, white face, whorl way above eye level...geez. Looks like a pretty concentrated whorl. This horse will test, challenge, be reactive, and is smart enough to win the battles. Good part is also smart enough to learn very quickly as long as you can stay a step ahead.

I can't really see the bay's that well. It's above eye level which means some of the same traits as horse #2. It looks like it's more splayed out which suggests a little harder to teach and get his attention before real work can take place.

Can be unpredictable, mentaly quick, intelligent. May use this intelligence to take adantage of an unexperianced rider, steady and incomplicated.
How did I do?
