Judging Based on Expressions

While nonverbal signals are generally helpful, we must not rely on them so much. Sometimes, their meaning may not be very clear or cannot be deciphered at all. For example, look at the illustration of a "poker face” below. Why don't you try interpreting the meaning of this nonverbal signal?

This face is without any expression, so it is hard to guess what the person is actually feeling.
Also, the same person doesn't always act the same way. He may smile when he is happy, but he may also smile when he is simply being polite. Therefore, to be sure that your interpretation of his nonverbal signal is correct, you must know the person well.
You must develop the skill of interpreting nonverbal body language.
