Some Unusual Facts behind Smiling Much has been said about the power of a smile. Sure enough, it’s one unique curve that can set everything straight. In a broader viewpoint, smiling indicates that a person is willing to expose and give away a certain part of him that is happiness. This perception has somewhat overshadowed some other facts about this particular human face. For those who want to look into smiling more closely, below is a roundup of unusual facts about it. Smiling Doesn’t Always Indicate Happiness Those who are exploring evolution have found out that a smile is an indication of fear. Smiling is easily observed in animals like monkeys and apes. Experts believe that smiling is the way for these animals to tell their predator that they’re not harmful or perhaps, palatable. Smiling in humans doesn’t only convey happiness. It’s also an act to mask embarrassment, anger, fear, confusion, and anger. Based on some studies, people also smile when they tell lies.

It’s an Inborn Mechanism According to Charles Darwin, facial expressions are a product of evolution, instead of cultural interactions and other external factors. This proposition is evident among newborn babies. All newborn babies smile, and scientists believe that everyone’s born with the ability to do it. Fake it ‘Till You Make It Faking a smile may not be an acceptable and ethical behaviour, but science says doing it can actually make you happier. Laughter yoga practitioners also believe in this. In fact, it’s one of the tenets of their discipline. Smiling is Contagious “Smile and the world will smile with you.” This adage may be an understatement, but it’s scientifically correct. Researchers agree that just like yawning, smiling is communicable. They found out that some people find it hard to frown or make a face if they take a look at smiling subjects.

The smile will remain mysterious. Putting it in context, one can easily infer that it’s as mysterious as Mona Lisa’s smile. For now, it’s alright to be content that a smile is generally a positive human experience, and that people are willing to improve their teeth to give others a good impression.
