Let’s begin with a simple experiment. How about we refer our dear ally, Google, and quickly check two different kinds of pictures. One of a person with a smile, either a girl or a guy, gender doesn’t matter. And another of a person- again gender doesn’t matter- without a smile. Now, hold your heart and hope to lie. No, tell us honestly please who did you like better? ‘The one with a smile, of course’ we believe you said, right? Right. So, one thing is clear that we instantly build a soft corner for a picture, or a person for that matter, with a smile. Now, no two smiles are same. But they can easily be characterized as a hearty smile or a fake smile. Again, there is nothing like an ugly smile but there sure is an appealing and a not-so-appealing smile. That can’t be denied.
