Silvio Berlusconi, Italy's Prime Minister displays an "Exaggerated Pout" during a news conference. A subtle or moderate pout can be a signal of sadness - but when you see an exaggerated pout as Mr. Berlusconi shows us - this is a signal of uncertainty. It is often seen in conjunction with the gesture cluster of a shoulder shrug and a palms-up display. Silvio's shoulders are elevated here and his palms-up gesture completes the triad. Many confuse the exaggerated pout for a sign of sincere consideration. Don't make this mistake.
