This is a great example of a fear expression on Jordan Spieth. Just after he was awarded the trophy upon winning the U.S. Open yesterday - its top accidentally fell off. In this moment the corners of his mouth are classically pulled backwards and laterally as well as slightly downwards. The World's top-ranked golfer's jaw is also clenched. His mid-face and lower eyelids are tense. Flaring of his nostrils is pronounced. Because his head and neck are tilted down and forward, the tissue on front of his neck has adopted an evanescent pseudo-double (multiple) chin configuration (more so than simply bending forward creates). If his head were more upright, this "neck of fear" would have had a more common "tenting" and taught appearance.
How can you differentiate this lower-level social fear expression from that of a more threatening fear - such as would be seen with a physical danger scenario?
