29 Smiling is one of a very limited number of “pancultural” nonverbal behaviors. Intensify Deintensify Neutralize Masking. 29

30  Intensify – exaggerate our facial expressions to fit the situation, i.e. smiling at a wedding.  Deintensify – when we want to control or subdue an expression, when you found out you got into law school and your friend did not.  Neutralize – avoid showing any facial expressions to appear neutral, i.e. judges at a gymnastic event.  Masking – when you want to conceal our real emotion, i.e. when your significant other buys something and you want to conceal your anger by looking excited. 30
