When talking to a person, we get only 30% of all the information through their words — all the rest of the info can be revealed in their movements, tone of voice, and other non-verbal means of communication. So if you want to know what your friends are actually feeling at any given moment, it’s better to watch their faces — try to be extra attentive and you’ll learn a lot of new things about them.
We prepared a short guide on how to “read” people’s faces.
- Raised and curved eyebrows may mean that a person is surprised. And the more surprised they are, the higher their eyebrows lift. Raising the eyebrows is also a sign of openness and attraction to you.
- Eyebrows that are lowered and drawn together usually symbolize anger. As a rule, you’ll also see vertical wrinkles between the eyebrows.
- Inner corners of eyebrows that are drawn together and upward indicate sadness.
