    Default THE LOOK!

    Hi, my fellow SJ friends!

    I was just wondering: Do any of you have what you would call 'The Look'? Meaning, when you give this deadly stare, you make the knees of even the strongest, most formidable man shake?

    Just curious, because I have it. But I cannot produce it on command. Certain thoughts have to go through my head, and then magically, WHOOOM...

    For example, this often happens with bosses of mine who are so formidable, and everyone is scared of them. They push me too far, and ZING, they get 'The Look,' after which they tuck their tails between their legs and run. QUICKLY.

    This is rather amusing because I am usually this nice, polite, friendly person. But push the 'You went one step too far button,' and you will be exterminated by: THE LOOK!

    I have dozens of other examples of this trait as well.

    No I don't have a look like that. I think I moreso either smile or grimace when I am talking with someone. If its not that, then I have no expression at all, which is usually.

    Isn't that look usually described as the "teacher look"???

    That could very well be. But I remember my ESTX boss used to give me the little school boy look "Please don't beat me" when I looked like that.

    I think I know what you're talking about LL. It can't be produced on command, but I have more a "I'm going to kill you." sly smirk of confidence on my face. It makes people think twice before doing something they shouldn't. :yim_rolling_on_the_

    Haha, yes, I have this.

    At school a teacher used to say to me, if looks could kill, yours will. I had issues at that age though. I don't think I look I'm going to kill anyone these days, but a friend also said something about "the look" once. My husband too. I also have "the silence". Where I don't say anything, but the person knows the problem, and then says or does something to fix it. Sometimes I don't actually have a problem, but the other person just gets nervous. Once I got money because the person thought I was mad. But I wasn't. :confused:
