Reading Face Expressions

Reading Face Expressions

The inner emotions which get expressed on their own and are difficult to conceal are termed ‘facial expressions’. The skill to read another person’s mind by their face or body language should be mastered in order to have the ability to understand their feelings. The eye is the most important facial part which needs reading to comprehend what lies within.

One should familiarize with the look of surprise, disgust and anger in the eyes. The true emotion in the eyes which may be disguised with a different facial expression or body language depending on the situation should be watched to understand what the speaker actually means. Some signs like avoidance of eye contact or continuous blinking could indicate lying; smirk smile could indicate getting away after any wrong deed and so on.

The few steps that can assist in facial reading are:

  • Try to segregate irrelevant signs and concentrate on the relevant ones to take indications from the signs on the face. Do not get mixed up with one sign for another.
  • Once the facial signs are understood, one should try and understand the message that a particular expression indicates and the underlying emotion that it conveys.
  • The signs on the face will have to be correlated precisely with psychological concepts. The behavioral pattern of the individual has to be understood well and meanings should be assigned to them.

The reaction to the actual meaning of the speaker’s words even if it is being disguised should be suitable to the environment in which the individual and the speaker are in.
