Is all it takes to give yourself away.

Babies look at our faces because they know that this is where they can find explanations.

It is where we look for information too.

Because on the face is enough accessible information to make mind reading possible.

When someone tells us "I love you"

We look immediately at him or her because by looking at the face we can know.

Or at least we can know a good deal more about whether the sentiment is genuine,

Do we see tenderness and pleasure?

Or do we catch a fleeting micro-expression of distress and unhappiness flickering across his or her face.

So be careful you can give yourself away in milliseconds.
We do not even know how we do this.
Just knowing that we do not like or trust someone.

It's all done in milliseconds.
Become conscious of those milliseconds.
