I never suggested it did.
i.e. That the sitter might be discomforted by the possibility that he or she would be portrayed with a big nose.
Unless that is, they're knowledgable photographers who are being photographed against their will for some reason. i.e tied to the chair or similar.
The two are entirely separate.
Photographing a sitter (a relative stranger ) close- up with a wide angle angle lens will result in two entirely separate things.
a) By invading their personal space you may make them feel uncomfortable
b) The barrel lens distortion imparted by the wide angle lens will make their face appear more rounded and centre of the field their nose, more bulbous. Which admittedly may subsequently make them angry and demand their money back.
