    Anger. lower brows and square mouth. square mouth shown in speeches. raised upper eyelids cause glaring.

  2. SDL says:

    This image received the most variety of responses yet! Anger was the most common response, perhaps due to the lowering of the brows, the “glare-like” quality of the eyes, and the mouth position – perhaps looking like a retort or shouting.

    As far as this image is concerned, it has the raised eyebrows (FACS codes – also called AU’s of action units; 1+2), the lowering of the brows (AU4) and the raising of the eyelids (AU5). It may be due to the speech, however there appears to be traces of a lip stretch (AU20) – if we add all of these together, I would call this expression fear.

    Thanks for those of you who got involved! Stu
