It amazes me how subliminal expressions effect the way we feel and the way people respond to us. The book mentions that the most important thing you can take from a face is the emotion behind it. In return, we react a certain way to what emotion they're feeling. We may not realize we are reacting and that a certain expression is on our face, but it does occur. These reactions effect our moods and even our behaviors. For example, if you express happiness, even unknowingly, you are more likely to feel happy later on, and may even go out of your way to help somebody else to make them happy. If you express sadness, also unknowingly, you are more likely to feel sad later on and may cry or stay in your room and sleep. If you do not know an expression you are showing, how is it possible you can feel that way later on, and maybe even act in a way that shows that emotion? It is amazing how it works, and is really important information everyone should know. If someone encounters you with a problem, it is good to make them smile, because that should make them feel a little bit better throughout the day.
