It’s hard not to notice the dazzling smiles displayed by celebrities, high-ranking politicians, business leaders and other successful people around the world. If you have ever thought those winning smiles played a role in the success of those people, you are not alone. Researchers have conducted many studies over the course of several decades, and concluded that smiles have a significant impact on people’s confidence, as well as the way that people judge them.
A groundbreaking study in 1970 suggested that people with charming smiles are thought of as more intelligent and happier. Several studies beginning in 2002 confirmed and expanded on those findings. One of the most recent studies, performed in 2012, examined social media profile pictures of college freshmen, and found a strong co-relation between facial expressions, and reported life-satisfaction nearly four years later. Perhaps the most remarkable smile survey to date was performed in 2010, with findings indicating that happy, smiling individuals may live longer.
These are just a few more reasons to love your smile, take care of it, and use it often.
