Body language of disgust and micro expressions

Being able to read the micro expression of disgust will give you many advantages. When reading the facial expressions of a man or a woman there are two places that you will want to look so that you can interpret what is going on.

  1. 1.      The bridge of the nose between the eyebrows
  2. 2.      The top of the lip


When a man or woman shows disgust with their nonverbal communication they will push or smash their eyebrows together at the same time their top lip will come up and may even flatten out.  


Micro expressions may last just a brief amount of time usually less than a second so it is important to be able to recognize them quickly. When your knowledge and skills for reading micro expressions have increased it will almost be like you have the ability to read minds when you see what others are displaying with their faces.

You may even find that the micro expression of contempt can help you understand a situation better.

  1. I can’t help that “disgusted” expression when I’m thinking it. Great article. I was making the face as I was reading this because I never really paid attention to exactly how I was making the face. lol

  2. Great Scott … (sorry, I couldn’t resist)

    What I tell my class participants (sales) – if they are “brave” enough – to video record a couple of minutes of them just talking to the camera.

    Then, using a good editing program, look at the film frame-by-frame. The terrible expressions one makes are abundantly clear in this exercise … and it is really scary.


  3. Lately I’ve been observing brief interactions at the hospital…between personal..and I think I’m beginning to see those “micro” expressions-and people reacting to them. Reminds me of those flashing film inserts that were reported back in the 1960’s..people reacted to those suggestions without being aware of what they actually saw.


    Be Well.


  4. Scott,
    I think that disgust is a very strong emotion and cannot be mistaken. The thing is that we are masters in expressing our emotions on a subconscious level. As a result it is not easy to bring it to the conscious, describe it in detail and teach it to someone else.

  5. This is good not only to read in others but to recognize if you do this yourself. You may be giving away your thoughts without meaning to. Being aware of this can help you from giving away your position before your ready.

  6. Hi Scott,

    Again, I am thoroughly enjoying your series on microexpressions. I find the videos especially helpful as you show the “over-exaggerated” visual to get a better idea of what to look for.

    Stay Amazing, Neil
