How to identify honest sadness?

Obama-sad-face-450x278 Honest sadness can be identified based on the position of lips – the endings of lips are ‘’down’’. If this movement isn’t followed by other micro-expressions on the rest of the face (firstly around the eyes) than this doesn’t have to mean that the person is sad. Honest sadness, if we observe only the mouth region, considers the endings of the lips being ‘’down’’ and a fixed chin. This is one of the rare micro-expressions which only 5% of people can repeat, without moving the chin. The chin won’t move only if you are sad deep deep down. Try it!
