By nature, we are drawn to smiles and repelled by scowls.

In fact, we naturally want to get to know more about a person who often smiles, and emotional detach from a person who regularly grimaces. Smiles are contagious to us, like tickling or yawning, even in the worst of circumstances, we may instantly smile back at a smiling person, perhaps ‘against our will’ so to speak, when it wasn’t our plan.
