This expression should raise your red flags - even if you're an Alabama Republican. It was taken on Saturday, 11 November 2017 in Birmingham. Roy Moore is, of course, a candidate for the US Senate. After The Washington Post raised allegations of sexual misconduct with minors, Mr. Moore defended his case before an audience and cameras.
In your efforts to learn nonverbal behavior, always hold the following Nonverbal Axiom with a top-of-mind awareness:
When confronted with an accusation, whilst refuting the charges, if the accused contracts and elevates their central forehead and central (medial) eyebrows (even with low frequency), while simultaneously configuring their mouth in a "pseudo-smile"- with very high probability they are lying.
(This is but one form of a "pseudo-smile"- with the mouth corners up-turned - in a configuration kept while speaking - regardless of the word being pronounced - and it adds to the unnaturalness. This Is NOT a sincere smile - it's NOT a true smile.)
Learn to recognize this expression - even in its subtlest forms - without fail - for it's an extremely reliable predictor of deception/insincerity.
