How good are you at reading people's facial expressions?

    I've been told I'm good at reading people but not sure how these people know I can read them lol.

    I think facial expressions speak louder than words. If a person gives you the best compliment in the world (best choice of words you ever heard), but they don't have the right facial expressions, it kills the whole thing imho.

    So, facial expressions speak to me a lot louder than words. I'm sure others often disagree and that's fine.

    Anyway, do you trust your ability to read facial expressions and correctly understand the message being sent?

    It means that you are very empathetic, Matt. Which can be a very good thing

    Facial expressions are not very reliable.

    How we react to facial expressions, that's a different story.

    I know you cant see my face on here, but, if you saw my expressions, youd surely read "burnt out".

    I've known many burnouts and live with them. I can read that look.

    it can also resemble a person who's been overworked.

    Not entirely facial expressions but body language overall is a mine of information
