3 DAYS AFTER THIS ORIGINAL POST
Congressman Aaron Schock (R - Illinois) has be accused of misuse of campaign funds as well as tax dollars. What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of two recent interviews.
Inward Lip Roll (ILR)
This is one way the psyche suppresses an inward crescendo and outer expression of emotions when they're far from emotional baseline
Tightened horizontal thin lips of anger
and tightening of his mustache area along with nostril flaring as well as more tightening of lower eyelids. His eyebrows are vectored downward. Aaron Schock's nonverbal cluster signifies anger in this moment.
Elevated CFC with this mouth configuration signify fear (subtle mouth component here)
Multiple Hard Swallows with several Extended Blinks
This Nonverbal Pairing (cluster) is indicative of fear
Subtle contempt for CNN reporter Drew Griffin
Thinned, horizontal lips of anger with his central (inner) eyebrows directed downward and lower lids tightened with nostril flared - more anger
A Tongue Jut immediately
as he looks away indicates "I've been bad" and "I got caught" - this is a display of self-deprecation
Looks further away
Inward Lip Roll with tightening of his "mustache area", flaring of his nostrils, downward vectored eyebrows and lower lid tension all indicate he is feeling, yet not trying to express significant anger in this moment
Another multiple pairing of hard swallows with prolonged eyelid closures
He is in Fear
Another Tongue Jut signifying his own belief that he's been caught and guilty of bad behavior
The lack of forehead contraction in a patchy manner is significant for Botox treatments in this 33 year-old male congressmen overly concerned with image. This practice is consistent with him posing with his shirt off for magazine covers and is also an analog of his lavish spending on his Congressional Office interior decorating mimicking a television show (Downton Abbey).
Another tongue jut at 3:09 just after CNN reporter Drew Griffin asks, ".... was it appropriate to be spending $27,000 on a professional photographer? ....".
Congressman Schock believes he's been bad and has been caught with his hand in the cookie jar.
Disgust with Anger
Inward Lip Roll (ILR) and mustache area tightening with flared nostrils indicate a suppression of anger
As Congressman Schock is chauffeured away, he once more displays thin lips of anger
