Micro Expressions and Gut Feelings

Micro Expressions and gut feelings
Micro expressions are brief and involuntary muscle movements within the face. They last less than a second and it’s why many people have difficulty in noticing them. You probably know the feeling when you just know that somebody is not telling the truth. What we perceive in such situations is coming more from our gut feeling, and therefor not evidence-based, that the person is not really saying what they are thinking. This is an intuitive feeling that the person is somehow contradicting her words with what is happening on her face. If you would learn how to read micro expressions, you can identify more precisely which emotions they are displaying.

Can we control micro expressions?
The muscle movements of our face contract involuntary when we experience emotions. Most people cannot control those subtle movements. Good poker players are able to suppress showing emotions, but you can notice a difference on the face when the person is just displaying a natural, neutral face or a poker face. When someone is showing a poker face it means that there is something he wants to hide and you can observe them more closely until he finally reveals some signs on the face or through his body language. There is always a difference between not showing emotions because you don’t feel them and showing a poker face.

Some people are more aware about the impression they can give by trying to mask one emotion with the other one. Shy people smile to cover uncertainty and fear. They want to look relaxed and create a better rapport. However an artificial smile has a different meaning than a real, authentic smile and they don’t get the same answer. Even a dog can see when the smile is fake and starts barking because for him this is an indication of showing teeth in aggression. In certain situations people try to show surprise instead of the fear which they feel. An afraid open mouth is easy to cover with a surprised open mouth. Nevertheless, the stimulus to mask surprise often comes after you have already experienced fear and after training in Micro Expressions Training Videos you can notice these exact moments on the face.

There is more…
When you try to fake emotions they will appear on your face later than when you really feel them. Experiencing real emotions first means you show them spontaneously, then you react verbally. Faking emotion looks like a movie in slower speed, it takes longer to imitate them. Good actors are not faking emotions but really experience the role they are playing, that’s why they seem to be so real. And then there are of course people who just don’t feel and/or don’t show strong emotions at all. To know in which category someone fits, and to know how to interpret what you are seeing (or not seeing), is a skill that requires experience. It the same with training muscles. Training how to read micro expressions is like going to the emotional intelligence fitness. The more you do it, the better you become at it.

Here’s some book reviews taken from the Amazon page, imagine how much you can learn over two days?
“I have just finished reading ‘Body Language, It’s what you don’t say that matters’….
Wow.. what can I say, this is a truely enlightening book!

Over the past few years I have been looking to gain knowledge on the subject of body language and have spent much time reading books related to it but none of which have even come close to this book by Robert Phipps, he certainly knows the subject well and puts his knowledge of it across perfectly….. I just couldnt put it down!! Its amazing to think that in the past two days I have felt more in control….. Yes, I gained ALL that from a book!

You HAVE to read this! :-)” Abergirl


“Forget the ‘also rans’ in this genre, ‘Body Language’is a winner by a mile. Unlike some of the other books written about body language, which can quickly become tedious, Robert Phipps has a writing style that holds your attention from start to finish. The book covers all you need to know on the subject in a clear concise way which I personally couldn’t fault. Excellent stuff” Needlzz


“Really interesting read, it’s impossible to put down once you start. It takes ‘people watching’ to a new level and is also a great tool if you come in to contact with people in your job. There is so much value in being able to know what people are feeling or thinking without them having to say it to you out loud. This book will really change how you look at everything, your life and just as importantly how you look at other people too. Brilliant book, congrats to the author.” – Mark Stewart


“I bought this for my husband for Christmas, and then read it myself. This is a great way to learn about body language, whilst applying it to different scenarios. Very well explained and particularly useful in a sales context. It isn’t long winded, and is an easy read. Most books on body language don’t go as far as to help understand how useful it can be (or not) in home/work life situations.” – Mirandag


“Mobile technology and email have shrunk the size of the world. A lot of business is now conducted at arm’s length and remotely, diminishing our face-to-face communications skills. Whilst it is now technically possible to pull off a big deal with a huge multinational, sitting home alone in our pyjamas, when that deal starts to go off course, genuine face time counts. Understanding body language is the key unlocking a secret code, exposing the thoughts, plans and actions of our fellow human beings. This insight is crucial in business and in all human relationships.

This book addresses these and many other matters on relating to ‘reading’ people and rekindling these basic human skills which have been lost in the technological age. Robert Phipps has written a superb book which should be essential reading for anyone in business or who wants to know what is really going on behind the mask.” – Moose Papoose


“I could not put it down. I can only say that this book will change your whole life and the way you look at your fellow man and woman.
Ideal for all who come into contact with others and want to read them even without hearing what the say.  Enjoy.” – Bear


“A compelling read, I couldn’t put it down! The very first paragraph gets you thinking and that doesn’t stop all the way through this fantastic book! Robert gets you to think about what you do, what you see, what you think… everything.. and in a really friendly, informative way. It’s almost as though he was there in the room with you, having a chat.

This fascinating book is well laid out, with just the right amount of information interspersed with exercises, case histories, stories and great pictures, and the summaries at the end of each chapter bring it all together.

The exercises in the book are a helpful way to really understand the techniques and approaches, and are most interesting in what they show you about yourself and others)

I loved the PIN code especially… it takes ‘people watching’ to another level and helps bring together what you have learned through the book. I doubt I will ever be bored again waiting for train or in a really dull meeting, as there will always be something to look for now.

The ideal book to carry around with you!” – Pinkwaffles
