In this image of Roy Moore (as well as the close-up and third image below), we see an elevated Central Forehead Contraction (elevated CFC) along with a "Mouth Smile". Yet this smile is anything but sincere.
Now, of course, every human being makes this same expression ... occasionally. We do so as a nonverbal manifestation of the following emotions:
• Disbelief (specifically, Smug Incredulity)
It's normal to feel each of these emotions from time to time (provided they don't occur too frequently).
Additionally, each of these emotions can also be projected by different facial expressions.
So, while we all display this expression once-in-a-while, those individuals who are Sociopaths (Antisocial Personality Disorder) will display this facial configuration with much greater frequency vs. the general population.
No psychologically healthy person will display this facial expression with significant frequency.
Summary: Whenever an elevated Central Forehead Contraction occurs FREQUENTLY along with a "mouth smile" (it's usually only a partial mouth smile) - it's not only insincere, but it also has a very strong correlation with antisocial personality disorder (sociopathic behavior).
This nonverbal display is so characteristic of Roy Moore, that he even chose a photo of himself with this same expression to use as his Wikipedia profile picture.
