Smiling really does increase attractiveness and likability between humans. In fact, smiling correlates with greater trust, greater financial earnings, and increased interpersonal cooperation. A smile tends to convey respect, patience, empathy, hospitality and compassion. Research also reports that people receive more help when they smile. Even the smile of a stranger produces more “Good Samaritan” effects on the receiver. When you smile, even memory retrieval of your name is enhanced as is shown in neuroscience research.
Smiling is infectious You catch it like the 'flu. When someone smiled at me today I started smiling too.
I passed around the corner And someone saw my grin, And when he smiled I realized I'd passed it on to him.
I thought about that smile Then realized its worth, A single smile, just like mine, Could travel round the earth.
So, if you feel a smile begin, Don't leave it undetected, Let's start an epidemic quick And get the world infected!
Keep the smile going by sending this on to a friend.. Everyone needs a smile!
