Choose Your Smile: 10 Smile Types


A smile is a facial face with the upward contours at the ends of your mouth. A recent research has identified the ten main kinds of smile, each on its own connoting a uncommon type of emotion.

Most smiles are pleased signs. They speak of joy, happiness, like or even pride. Though, there are smiles that can also be an compulsory face of anxiety, otherwise known as the frown, or an face of embarrassment in a sheepish sort of way.

1. The Heartfelt Smile. This is known as the honest from the heart, real and sincere smile. The right and impulsive feelings of pure joy, gladness, happiness, amusement and pleasure are spontaneously expressed through this smile.

The facial muscles will raise the corners of the mouth, while both the cheeks will be lifted up and at the same time retracting the skin nearly the eye socket inwards. The stronger the emotion gets, the more evident this muscle action will be converted into. This heartfelt smile naturally only last between two-thirds of a second to four seconds and it is very seldom held longer than that.

2. The Tight-Lipped Smile. A favourite of many people, do you find physically tight-lipping a joke or an annoying person while attempting to wait forthcoming? I’m sure you have, we all have.

The lips are stretched tight across the face to form a honest line concealing the teeth. It sends the thought that the ‘smiler’ has a surprise or a withheld opinion that they will not be sharing with you.

3. Dealer smile – All dealers have in their skill set at least one type of sly, bone idle smile that only card dealers can do. This smile is used in response to positive observations/requests from players along the lines of, “Please let me win / You’re gorgeous / You are the best dealer in the whole world.” It is forthcoming lacking being inviting, and it never means “Yes” or “Thank you.” When they mean “Thank you” they say “Thank you.” The Dealer smile means something like, “It is too much distress to in fact speak with you, and considering how you’ll doubtless be screaming for my death within the next fifteen minutes, there’s no sense engaging your delusion that we have some only one of its kind tie, so I will smile at you instead to acknowledge that you are speaking.”

4. The Twisted Smile. This smile is very weird as it shows opposite emotions on each side of the face. Depiction A below, the right brain raises the left side eyebrow, the left zygomatic muscles and left cheek to produce one type of smile on the left side of the face while the left brain pulls the same muscles downwards on the right side to produce an mad frown. When you place a mirror down the middle of illustration A, at an angle of 90 degrees to reflect each side of the face, you produce two absolutely uncommon faces with opposite emotions.

5. Loser smile – This smile happens when someone loses a huge hand and wants to give off the depression that it doesn’t topic that much to him, usually in response to some laughing comment by the hand’s winner. See, unlike the civilized world wherein it’s generally uncool to gloat in victory or kick a dog when he’s down, in the casino it’s pretty standard that after you take a guy’s money you can give him a “excellent-natured” ribbing about it, because….well, because these people are sick.

6. The Depressing Smile. This type of smile can be easily defined by its asymmetrical, lopsided and wry shape. Half the mouth will look like smiling while the other half frowning at the same time. This smile is usually showed in front of others by someone who is conceding failure, defeat or unhappiness.

7. Sideways-Looking-Up Smile. I’ve got to say, this is my favourite type of smile and I’m sure most men would agree with me. It’s so enthralling and ‘cute’. It simply spills out excellent-natured, reserved and juvenile messages while turning heads of men everywhere as it switches on the man’s parental feelings of wanting to protect and care for females. There’s only one woman who pulled of this smile impeccably and used it to mesmerize hearts of people everywhere – Princess Diana.

8. The Counterfeit Smile. A counterfeit smile is also more asymmetrical compared to a sincere and real smile, and it is an intentional gesture performed to mislead and deceive others. This kind of fake smile usually last longer than a heartfelt smile, and more time is looked-for for it to spread across the face.

Many examples of the counterfeit smile can be seen from the faces of inexperienced actors, shady politicians, dishonest salesmen and all those other people whose job requires smiling all the time.

9. Not understanding you smile – The default dim-wattage smile, usually accompanied by some head-nodding, used when you want to appear engaged in no matter what the hell this person is blathering at you about. Unfortunately, a well loved staple of corporation bankers.

10. Nothing i can do smile – This is the smile that the floorman or pit boss gives you when they’re telltale you that even with all your screaming, the request or complaint you have registered is just not going to go your way tonight. It’s an embarassingly fake smile, which can trigger-quick switch to a scowl when they choose to start using the Bark of Pressure on you. Once you see the Nothing I Can Do smile, even if you have a valid complaint, you can be sure they’ve by now chose you’re not vital enough to satisfy.
