Women With Resting B*tch Faces May Actually Be Better At Communicating
ALL THE LADIES IN THE PLACE WITH SCOWLS ON YA FACES SAY,
I am more in tune with my emotions and the needs of others, which ultimately makes me great at communicating with those around me.
Back in the 60s, psychologist Albert Mehrabian shared research suggesting humans rely most heavily on body language and nonverbal communications to relate to one another, Metro reports.
While it seems like women with resting bitch faces (RBF) would be ill-equipped in a world that depends on facial cues, they actually might have stand higher chances of communicative success.
Rene Paulson, the founder of Elite Research and a consultant at Texas Woman's University, insisted in a recent Quartz article RBF sufferers excel at human connections.
In her article, Paulson shared,
Women confronted by a world that automatically attaches negative attributes to their non-smiling face must quickly learn how to communicate and also hone a finely-tuned awareness of both our own emotions and the emotions of those around us… Women used to being constantly misunderstood focus more on the words someone says, rather than their tone, body cues, or facial expressions, ensuring a more effective flow of information between both parties.
That sounds like full permission to keep those sexy grimaces in tact, as if you ladies even needed it.
