Facial expressions do not reflect our innermost feelings, new research suggests

It might be more accurate to say we should never trust a person’s face, US scientists say.

Aleix Martinez, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at The Ohio State University in the US, said: “The question we really asked is: ‘Can we truly detect emotion from facial articulations?’.It's important to realise that not everyone who smiles is happy. Not everyone who is happy smiles

Prof Martinez said: “Everyone makes different facial expressions based on context and cultural background.“And if you are happy for a whole day, you don’t go walking down the street with a smile on your face. You’re just happy.”Prof Martinez said: “Some claim they can detect whether someone is guilty of a crime or not, or whether a student is paying attention in class, or whether a customer is satisfied after a purchase.
