Smirk

Do facial expressions really reflect our inner feelings and can change our mood?
Have we ever tried to sustain a smile in the moment of anger or stress and continued to feel as angry or stressed?

first.

well, isa akong mapagpatawa at kagagu-gagong nilalang. kahit may problema ako, wala lang. smile. :)

hehee.

di naman ako maramdamin at magmumukmok sa isang tabi. besides, wala rin namang patutunguhan yun.

:D http://vindication.wordpress.com

sino naman yung nasa pic?
Most of the time no matter how hard we try to hide what we really feel it shows wether we fake our smile or not. Pero minsan nakaka change nga ng mood ang pagtawa mas lalo na kung me magpapatawa sayo.

Sa second question, yes hehehe. Mas lalo na kung kausap mo medyo cliente na mahirap makaintindi o boss na bigla na lang me ipagagawa sayo on such a short notice na medyo impossible ng gawin. Kailangan nakangiti pa rin kahit na sa loob-loob mo ang sarap ng umbagin nung tao. Kelangan composed pa rin at professional ang dating.

mahirap yan... ewan ang hirap explain baka nobela magawa ko hehe!

lalo na rin sa min minsan parang mortal sin ang hindi mag-smile, kahit pagod ka na, kahit gutom ka na...smile pa rin!

hirap ng artista noh?

ay mali! hehe

halata naman kung fake ang smile o hindi, especially sa mga taong nakakakilala talaga sa yo.

sinubukan ko na rin yan dati. galit ako pero sinubukan kong ngumiti. hindi umepek. halata pa rin na galit ako.

ay tama.
facial expression do reflect inner feelings... well, to the emotional person siguro.
and hirap gawin yon.. piliting ngumiti habang galit.. wah.. parang constipated ang itsura. :D

sometimes it shows... most of the times hindi... they say no reaction ako sa mga bagay bagay... bakit do they really know what i feel inside... baka sa 'facial expression' ko lang mukhang hindi... hehehe

want to know the real feelings of a person? look to their eyes... you can really see a person's feelings by just looking at their eyes...

God bless!

di ko yata kayang ngumiti kapag galit. hehe.

isang kapintasan ko iyan(I'm not sure if u call it that way)...very transparent ako sa feelings ko...I can't hide it, nagre-reflect...so mahirap ako magkunwari...if i'm happy..super!..kapag galit?..galit tlga, at pag sad...it shows.pero, mabait ako ha...:) bragging? :D

yeah i saw it reflecting
sometimes it's necessary to perfect the art of faking a smile. you need it for PR.

and smiling also prevents regurgitation :)
if you're angry, no matter how you fake your smile, it will show the real meaning.
when you smile... the whole world will smile with you!
some can fake a smile, perhaps a wicked smile. Good thing not all are capable of doing that.
i know someone who can do that. give a genuine smile but was all too troubled inside that only she could herself could figure out.

your questions...ah, they make a sure itch in my head. hey, hope is well...

*here's a smirk for you!*

I can't, for the life of me, smile when I'm not genuinely happy. FOrcing a smile in pics... I always look a tad psychotic.
i do it all the time. smile even when you don't feel like smiling.

Minsan "oo" at minsan "hindi rin"... in other words... not all the time... naks!
Sometimes, when I feel bad or sad, nag-i-smile pa rin ako sa ibang tao to the point na 'di nila nakikita o nahahalata na sad ako.
Maliban lang kung happy ka, then unexpected circumtances came along na talagang nagpa-badtrip sa'yo... hirap i-deny nu'n. Makikita at mahahalata na na-badtrip ka!
What ju think?!

a smile can keep wrinkles away.

bawal ang nakasimangot dito with matching gorilla in the picture hahaha...

Oh yes. You can smile but you're really burning up inside. Ilalabas mo na lang pag mag-isa ka na. Sometimes the situation calls for it.

But when I'm angry, you can see it in my eyes even when I'm smiling.

generally, yes facial expressions do reflect our feelings. lalo na sakin, im very transparent. but there are times when u know that you shant show how u feel, like at work or something, and u try to hide it. but then, real friends should know an instant if you feel bad or what, no matter how hard you mask yer pain/hurt/wateber.
Yes, I agree facial expressions do reflect our feelings. When I'm sad or happy you can tell by just looking at my face.
Salamat sa pag dropped by sa blog ko.

personally speaking,yeah,it does..

but my kinda work,i have to be jolly and energetic always,even on tough days,coz I dont want my students feel and see and be affected by my own selfish reactions..

yun lang! :)
Anonymous ghee, at 4:43 AM  
uhmm..as the adage say "action speaks louder than words"..maybe our expressions are the real reflection of what we really feels..but most of the time, we hide our real emotions and just flaunt our widest smle so that we may appear okay.kaya i think, yung emotions at the present is not always a basis of what a person feels..but seeing someone smile/cry affects us one way or another...
mababasa mo pa kaya comment ko? sa kadmi nag comment sayo? heheh kilitiin ko lang kilikili ko natatawa na ako HAHAH!
ingat ka jan!
At times yes. But there are times where you have to conceal the sadness behind those smiles because you just have to.

ihaven't tried to smile when i don't feel like smiling or when i feel so angy and stressed... it really shows on my face, im a very transparent person.

im not a kind of person na "nabibili ang ngiti", i love to smile and laugh alot,im a very mababaw in nature but then kapag galit ako hinde ko talaga magawang mag-smile :(

as in simangot kung simangot ang labanan hehehe. :)
Blogger jhenny, at 9:18 AM  
hey iskoo, thanks for the visit. but to answer your question, most of the time, yes, facila expression does showthe real feelings inside. but in some cases, like me, i can always fake almost anything inside me.
hindi ako marunong mag-hide ng feelings ko lalo na pag galit ako or asar ko! halatang-halata talaga kasi hindi usual sa akin ang pagiging tahimik! hehehe...

I think it helps. Sometimes...

kahit wala ako sa mood nakaya kung ngumiti dito sa opisina , pero sa ka love affair ko hahaha! hindi ko kaya, mahirap itago pag mahal mo na sa buhay ang involved :)
I think it's hard to sustain a smile when you're angry. But I would manage to be cheerful even though when I'm sad.
transparent akong tao... pag naiinis na ako kahit anong ngiti ko halata. :(

basically, masiyahin akong tao. Pagme kasama akong "mangot" (nakasimangot) i try my best to make them laugh... minsan effective... minsan semi lang..

Napapansin ko minsan pagka nakasimangot ako madalas sa hindi, nahahawa sila sa kin. :|

That's why I try to be cheerful always...

may mga taong magaling magtago ng saloobin. mayroon namang hindi. nabibilang ako sa unang tinuran ko. pero sa pagtatrabaho, tama yung sinabi ni ferdz -- ano man ang nararamdaman mo, kelangan maging professional ka at objective ka.

one other thing, magaling man magtago ng feelings ang isang tao, sa mata mo makikita ang tunay na nararamdaman niya.
Blogger oggie, at 10:52 PM  
hirap nga yan... paano kung nanginginig na sa galit.... ??
elow iskoo ,
sarap ng ngiti ng bata ano....i wish ko sana lagi akong bata...kahit na me problema as in poise pa din ang smile pero kasi di ba minsan di maiwasan yung mga oras na di mo mapigilan na kahit gusto mo smile e mapapasimangot ka talaga di ba...haaay !

basey

ganyan mga Noypi, resilient sa problema, rebounds readily from adversity and depression. ngiti lang lagi. sabi nga ng mga taga CNN nung bumisita dito noong nag cover sila ng Mt Pinatubo eruption bilib sila sa mga Pinoy, kahit nag-aalburuto na ang Mt Pinatubo nangangiti pa rin daw mga Pilipino.

I certainly did and the smile always ends up fake. Nice photo, damang-dama ang ngiti!
