Or are you just stone-faced around everything?
I was skipping around the internet and found this article, with a little about the genetics of smiling and thought it was kind of interesting, and maybe kind of ironic.
For those not planning on reading this, it's pretty much
> 5HTTLPR gene is involved in feelings. Short version of it = negative feelings, long version = less negative feelings. People with 2 short alleles = more prone to depressive feelings.
> but they also suggest that people with short alleles tend to experience more intensity in their feelings - their positives are really positive and their negatives are really negative.
> also noticed that the area of the brain connected with emotions, the thalamus, is larger in people with 2 short alleles.
> something like that. anyways.
Then I realized that my thalamus must be huge, because I find myself grinning at everything and crying... also at everything.
So I guess they're not wrong when they say "people that smile the brightest are sometimes the saddest".
