How Others See Your Smile

Posted on 9/25/2023 by Dr. Cheryl Freeman
How Others See Your SmilePatients seeking dental care may need to be made aware of how others interpret the smile they present. Nevertheless, individuals can communicate nonverbally via the use of psychological clues. Before opening your mouth, people already form opinions about you based on your posture, facial expressions, and gestures.

Understanding Your Smile From The Perspective Of Others

A genuine smile can put people at ease and make them feel more at ease around you. A friendly appearance may also be achieved just by smiling. Take, for instance, the case of an interview for a job. Employers considering you for a position look at more than just your CV and credentials. Your capacity to interact with others and your general manner will be regarded when you are interviewed for a job. Smiling at the beginning of an interview puts people at ease and increases the probability that they will form a favorable first impression.

In addition, the term "halo effect" refers to the phenomenon in which our brains attribute good attributes to a person after observing a single feature that we appreciate in that individual. Edward Thorndike, a researcher, is credited with the invention of this phrase in 1920. The halo effect refers to the phenomenon in which individuals judge one another based only on their perceptions of that other. It is possible that this does not accord with the whole "don't judge a book by its cover" idea, but it certainly drives home how significant initial impressions are. When you meet a new person, smiling has been shown to initiate a halo effect between you.
