Nonverbal Communication Quiz No. 2815: A.J. McCarron, Asymmetrical Smiles and the 5th Round? - Body Language (PHOTO)

A. J. McCarron was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 5th round of the 2014 NFL Draft - 164th overall. Many thought the Alabama quarterback would have been picked in the first round.

Adam Schefter of ESPN has recently reported that McCarron has rubbed teams "the wrong way" and suggested that this is a primary reason for his considerably lower that expected draft results.

The above image of the back-to-back BSC National Championship QB shows him with an asymmetrical smile. This particular image of McCarron's one-sided smile is indicative of which of the following emotions:

A. A Sincere Smile
B. An Insincere Smile
C. Contempt
D. Mouth Swagger
E. The Beginnings of a Sincere Smile
F. The End of a Sincere Smile
G. McCarron's Norm
H. Regret
I. Fear
J. A Jaw Confessional
K. Incredulity

Can you accurately differentiate these facial expressions?

What are the other emotions also consistent with asymmetrical mouth configurations?
