"You Can Perceive Personality from Faces"
In chapter 8, the book discusses that we can perceive personalities from faces. In my own opinion, I do not think this is entirely true. Often people think that I am "in a bad mood" or "miserable" simply because I am not smiling. While this is rarely the case, I just have a naturally "mean looking" face as I like to say. Just because someone is not smiling does not mean they are angry or miserable. I can see why people perceive people with happy smiles as more happy, but is this always really the case? I do not think people's facial expressions determine what kind of person they are at all. Some say it is those who actually smile the most, hurt more (emotionally).
