Body Language Reveals How We Really Feel

To figure out how someone is really feeling, don't just read their lips, watch their body language. In a recent study, researchers from Princeton University asked participants to determine from photographs if people were experiencing feelings such as loss, victory, or pain from facial expressions or body language alone, or from both.

In four separate experiments, participants more accurately guessed the pictured emotion based on body language - alone or combined with facial expressions - than on facial context alone.
