Facial expression by itself does not give reliable answers

Facial expression by itself does not give reliable answers

Facial expression by itself does neither accurately mirrors deeper, extreme emotions nor helps to distinguish accurately deeper extreme positive or negative emotions.

These are some basic results of a new study published in Science from November 2012. Here are some of the most important results regarding the expression of extreme emotions:

  • The facial expression by itself does not give reliable answers
  • Judging such emotions from the facial expression only lead to over estimation………..
  • The facial muscles by themselves are not able to express such emotions
  • The body expression (without facial expression) gives more answers
  • The body and the facial expression together are the best way to identify and understand the meaning of deeper extreme emotions
