    It is true. I thought a good number of the expressions were overblown or fake. But they are also still shots during emotional responses. I, at least, don't have a lot of experience with still-life emotion.

    It is also possible that they were capturing many of the more mundane emotions during a conversation with the person, but then caught contorted or exaggerated expressions that lasted for a fraction of a second during a longer natural looking response.

    They probably had to fake things like fear and sadness, unless they were willing to take their subjects into situations that would induce these feelings.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    I refuse to participate in a quiz that asks me to differentiate between 'shame', 'guilt' and 'embarrassment'. It's all the same thing.

    EDIT: And 'flirtatiousness' and 'interest'.

    Don't be such an INTP.

    You just had to miss all what it had to offer and find one weakness to satisfy your cynical thirst .

    No number of rolleyes smilies could express my contempt--or is it disgust? --for statements like "Don't be such a <Myers-Briggs type>".

    Not something directed specifically at you Riva, just a general observation.

    Don't be such a Canadian. Wait that doesn't make any sense. Are Canadians cynical?

    I noticed that you've taken your avatar off. Are you planning on taking a leave?
