The Science of  Micro Facial Expressions Meets Emoji’s

I’m having an “Ekman Moment”…again.  Probably because I’ve received at least half a dozen emoji laden texts and e-mails today; and I’m an attorney.

So how could one apply Dr. Ekman’s micro-expression method towards parenting.  Ekman uses the Pixar film “Inside Out” to illustrate how it could work and what we need to look for.  Spoiler Alert! If you haven’t seen “Inside Out” you’ll see many scenes from the movie.  Enjoy!

Emoji’s Love Them or Hate Them, They are Here to Stay!

Are you a fan of emoji’s? If you are, then today is your day, being that it is World Emoji Day! Nowadays it would seem everyone has their own line of emoji’s. Steph Curry has his Stephmoji, Ellen DeGeneres has her Exploji, and Charlie Sheen even has his own Sheenoji, among others. Emoji’s can be enjoyable when done correct, but they can also get a little annoying for those that tend to over use them. What do you think, are emoji’s a trend to stay, or on the way out? Do you have a favorite emoji? Do you tend to overuse them? I would love to hear from you!!!
