We don't only cry when we experience feelings of sorrow or unhappiness. We also shed tears to express positive states of love or joy.
A recent survey found that 68 per cent of respondents reported crying from a positive experience at least once a month.
One explanation for crying is that it is a social signal. It expresses to someone how you are feeling. Negative tears may be a signal for help. Happy tears may indicate that a person is eager to be close to others and have no mean intent.
How you express happy tears depends on who you are. An extrovert more often will experience beauty tears. Empathetic individuals cry affectionate tears more frequently, and liberal people are prone to shed beauty tears.
