    Understood. Maybe I read too fast, but I don't believe they made that bold of a statement. I took them as saying they strongly feel/believe this way.

    Either way, there will likely be future studies which will hopefully reveal more definite results.

    I'm not sure at whom this is directed, or really what point you're trying to illustrate. Are you agreeing or disagreeing with someone?

    Okay, but this stuff is sort of tenuous to tack on to humans when you're just considering primatology.

    If it isn't obvious, you are probably over thinking it.

    Who tacked anything on to humans?

    I am talking about tigers eating entire families. It seems as arbitrary as guessing what someone's smile indicates.

    Dexter's smile indicates he's about to kill again.

    Just look at this stone-faced killer.

    Oops, didn't realize this was an article about tigers.

    But they're guessing what someone's smile indicates by reviewing many case studies of people and general principles of primatology (sort of). Seems less arbitrary than throwing a tiger vid into a thread about people without any commentary linking the two (tacking the two together, if you will).

    Dexter's smile indicates he's about to kill again.
    Dexter would probably be an outlier in a study that showed general patterns of when people smile.

    You're right they were guessing, and looks CAN be deceiving. Fifty points for your House.

    Maybe. Or, a textbook example of someone who smiles because they are being mischievous.

    What if someone smiles because they remember a joke their friend told them last week? This all goes back to context and inference. All they are doing is laying the foundation for future work, which usually starts with at least one guess, called a hypothesis.

    We can't forget either that, like Kraus and Cheng, we are subject to bias that will affect how we perceive the same results they produced.

    These guys were all known to use their charisma, and ostensibly their smiles:

    Seriously, what about internal smiling styles. This study only seems to deal with the so-called "external" styles.

    What happens when you're smiling on the outside, but inside you're really crying.

    From a CMA point of view this study is too yang.
