What is Micro Expression Analysis?

What is Micro Expression Analysis?

Micro expressions are transient expressions in the face. They disclose underlying emotions that the individual is trying not to show. Micro expressions usually occur around the mouth and eyes. They are of extremely short duration, and last for less than one-tenth of a second.

Although micro expressions are mostly facial, they are also displayed in the body. Twitches of the leg and small hand movements can be cited as examples.

Analyzing the Face

Micro expressions happen very fast, but they can be detected. If you know that they occur and if you believe that a particular person may be lying or suppressing his or her emotion, you have to carefully observe that person. This is not easy, but the expression becomes clearer if you ask the subject a direct question.

It is better, but not always possible, to video the person for future analysis. In this case, it is better to involve another person who watches the individual while you ask the questions. Another way is to notice your own reactions. If you feel uncomfortable, then you are unconsciously observing the micro expressions.

The best way to practice micro expression analysis is to watch live interviews on television. Politicians provide a good material in this context. They often are economical with the truth.
