Some Bad News For Nicole Kidman, Sharon Osbourne And Jocelyn Wildenstein
DID you know that the width and force of your smile is a guide to your future happiness? The Duchenne smile – a smiles that moves the mouth, cheeks and eyes (it gives you crows feet) – is the one to go for. As we say, this cold be bad news for Nicole Kidman, Sharon Osbourne And Jocelyn Wildenstein:
In the longitudinal study of Mills College graduates, Keltner and colleague LeeAnne Harker coded the smiles of 114 women who had their university yearbook photo taken sometime during 1958 and 1960. All but three of the young women smiled. However, 50 had Duchenne smiles and 61 had non-Duchenne, courtesy smiles.
The genuine smile group were more likely to get and stay married, and had higher score evaluations of physical and emotional wellbeing. Remarkably, Keltner’s study was able to find this connection more than 30 years after the college photos were taken.
