Knowing Our Emotions, Improving Our World – Daniel Goleman with Paul Ekman. Disturbing emotions – even anger – can be used constructively. All emotions including hidden ones have their own distinct facial marker. With practice we can discern other's truthfulness and intent. We can free ourselves from the grip of regrettable emotional episodes. Research into facial expression and emotion reveals two startling facts: people cannot conceal their emotions, nor can they fabricate genuine emotions. Minute facial movements reveal true feelings and intent regardless of efforts to conceal them. Learning the connection between the face and the emotions can better our lives by giving us the ability to recognize our own emotions before they overwhelm our better judgment. Goleman and Ekman discuss the fascinating science of the Facial Action Coding System, and how we can use it to harness our emotions constructively.
