What Does He Really Think of You?
By Marty Nemko
According to the University of Oklahoma's Dr. Calin Prodan, most people misread people's facial expressions. For example, when your counterpart is smiling, think that's a good sign? Maybe. Smiling can be easily faked. It's harder to control other indices of a person's emotional state: their eyes, eyebrows, and forehead. So, next time you're in an important conversation and are wondering what your counterpart is feeling-happy, sad, angry, or worried-glance at the upper half of the person's face.What can you do today?
Have a conversation with someone you're not sure likes you. Watch his eyes and forehead.
