Explanation to the answers

  1. When a smile is sincere, it engages the eyes as well as the lips. You can see this is by small wrinkles forming in the corners of the eyes.
  2. Most liars try to look straight into the eyes, the opposite of what they are expected to do, hoping that it will make them more convincing.
  3. This person’s position is closed, which indicates discomfort. He does not feel confident and is obviously not at ease.
  4. Glasses with a wide frame give a person the air of seriousness, even if the person is not like that at all.
  5. It turns out that women who prefer subtle shades of lipstick (nude or glossy) are more interested in a career than in building relationships. The choice of red or burgundy speaks otherwise.
  6. A person who holds a cup with both hands, looking as if wanting to hide in it, definitely experiences discomfort.
  7. When a woman deliberately tries to win over her conversational partner, she leans towards him and slightly lets go of her emotions.
