    Not of the universal 7. Shame and/or guilt. I’m still on the upper face in my studies. There I see AU1b and AU2a. Lower, I see AU12, 13 or maybe 23. What ever it is it’s in the d or e range. When I mimic this I feel tightness on the outer sides of my chin, embarrassment.

  2. Varun says:

    Mix of sadness, anger and disappointment.

    It looks to me like “ergh – no that’s wrong and I feel bad for you” or simply “that’s awful!”. A mix of worry, disgust and empathetic embarrassment.

    This expression appears at 4.06 in the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5zWWgt5L4E&feature=related after “the Bachelor” says to “Never apologise for that”. Straight after this expression, she chews the inside of her mouth. In context, I believe she is demonstrating a teeth-clenched fear-like lip stretch (AU20) that gives the impression of guilt. The “ekk” sound goes well with this expression, and has an overall sad quality.
