Rich, Famous, Successful, and Unhappy

Nonverbal communications ("facial expressions, gestures, eye contact, posture, and tone of voice") reveal more about ourselves than the words that we speak.

Case 1: A CNN panel discusses last Tuesday's special election in Georgia. Just from looking at their expressions, can you tell whether the Democrat or the Republican won? It may be difficult, because CNN reporters are renowned for their objectivity.

This is CNN: Executive editor for Politics Mark Preston, chief political analyst Gloria Borger,
Political Director David Chalian, and Chief Political Correspondent Dana Bash.

Case 2: CEO's of leading tech companies met with President Trump on a subject about which everyone agrees: overhauling outdated government computer systems and improving information technology.

Per the WSJ:
CEO Tim Cook praised the White House for focusing on improving its technology, which he said would be an investment that would quickly pay off.
Try to look happier, Tim!
