Think for a moment about the wide variety of different types of smiles that a person might have in a day, a week, a month, a year. Sure, technically a smile is any small movement of a few facial muscles that allow the corners of the mouth to turn up.

Humans smile in dozens, if not hundreds of different ways.
HERE ARE JUST A FEW
1. An obligatory smile, like when you smile at a joke that’s not funny just to be socially polite

3. A shocked smile, such as when you’re greeted by a pleasant surprise
4. A wistful smile, that happens when remembering something or someone fondly
