Fear + Anxiety

In the everyday world, we often see more than one emotion displayed and a great example seen here. Herta Mueller, a Romanian-born German writer and Nobel Literature Prize winner shows both fear and anxiety in this photo. Of course, these two emotions often overlap. Ms. Mueller's upper eyelids are open slightly more than normal - consistent with fear in this context. Her classic inner lip roll indicates anxiety.  Herta was speaking at a news conference.
