It is one of the most important aspects of when you first meet someone, and for many it is an image which stays with them long after this encounter. When someone smiles, it can mean a number of things and could lead to them making either the right or wrong impression.
The many ways which a smile can help a person
If there are several teeth missing from the person’s mouth, this does not always make a strong impression. Negative impressions can be made about the person and many could frown on the person themselves. Many do not prefer for the teeth to be yellow and, if they see this discolouration present in other people, then they might cast distortions on the person themselves. In all, there are two types of smile.
The Duchenne Smile
This is otherwise known as a natural smile. A smile uses two sets of muscles and a Duchenne smile does cause crow’s feet as one muscle is used rather than another. This is often referred to as a smile which does not mean the person is lying and is sometimes called an “honest smile”.
The non-Duchenne Smile
This is often referred to as a “fake smile”. A person who sports a non-Duchenne smile might be doing it out of courtesy and merely reciprocating what the person they are talking to is doing. It could be done because they are being polite and do not want to anger the person who they are speaking to. Next time you’re talking to someone and you see them smile, check out their eyes as this can tell whether they are genuinely smiling or not.
