The language of emotion is the first language every child speaks; it is inherited at birth and scripted into human DNA. We have muscles in our face we cannot control, hormones in our blood, and chemicals in our brains that all make up this universal language. The moment we begin to feel, we begin to express. We know a child is born when we hear that first scream, her face takes on the universal expressions of pain and fear. She has never seen a human face, but has already mastered these expressions; her face changes, her biochemistry is altered, the color of her skin, even the rate at which she is breathing is accelerated. In a moment all the world knows exactly how she feels.
The Language of Emotion is a concise and compact approach to re-educating people on how to read genuine emotional expression. As technology has developed and people begin to consume more and more media there has been a wide spread epidemic of poor communication. We are producing and studying communication in greater volumes then we ever have throughout our entire history, and yet the divorce rate continues to rise, miscommunication is constantly sited as the reason for problems among business and families. The problem however is not communication, but emotion. As we interact we see people less and less on a face to face level and we lose our ability to accurately recognize and respond to genuine human emotion. This book will teach you the meaning behind facial expressions (micro expressions & macro expressions), help identify the difference between raw emotion and social emotion, help you notice the difference between a real emotion and one that is being faked, and teach you how to use this knowledge to influence the world around you.
