OLogy: Express Yourself!

See how good you’re at recognizing emotions.

When you’re feeling happy or sad, it’s often written all over your face. And the person looking at you knows exactly how you feel!

Humans are very social animals. And facial expressions are a way for us to communicate our emotions with one another, even if we don’t speak the same language. Communicating our feelings helps us get along. That’s one reason our brains evolved the ability to make facial expressions, and to instantly recognize them in others.
