Nonverbal Communication Analysis # 1816:
Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s Contempt &
Mary Richardson Kennedy's Social Smile

In this photo of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and his late Wife, Mary Richardson Kennedy, neither of them is wearing a sincere smile. While Mary displays a good social smile, Robert Kennedy Jr.'s face is highly consistent with contempt. We cannot say for whom this emotion is directed. Regardless of what he may have said immediately after or before this image was taken, whenever the body language and the verbal language are in disagreement, the nonverbal is always indicative of what the emotional brain is feeling-thinking.
