The Naked Face by Malcolm Gladwell AUG 15 2002
Malcolm Gladwell on The Naked Face we all wear:
"But there's nothing secondary about the face, and surely this realization is what set John Yarbrough apart on the night that the boy in the sports car came at him with a gun. It's not just that he saw a microexpression that the rest of us would have missed. It's that he took what he saw so seriously that he was able to overcome every self-protective instinct in his body, and hold his fire."
A must-read article about what people see when we look at each other and how some have taken that skill to a seemingly super-human level.
